Hi Chuck.

We use IBM NP and IP printers - models 17 and 20 primarily.  We love them.  One
thing I would recommend if you look at printers is to do a TCOP (total cost of
printing).  In most of our cases, while the IBM printers came out more expensive
to buy, when analyzing the cost of printing the IBM usually came out ahead.  Now
of course, these numbers are based on cost of supplies and expected life so
actual mileage may vary.  Good news is you can do this on your own relatively
easy.

If you want to learn more about the IBM printers with a low profile salesman
give Dave Hathaway a call at (317)566-3791.

Also, make sure you can hit the E-solutions expo on 11/30 in Indy........

Mike

Hi Folks !

We have an HP 5si (24ppm) attached to our AS/400 via the MPI Blue Kit
(supports AFP) with a simm that allows supports IPDS... It has a twin-ax
attachment feature and connects over Cat 5 twisted pair. It configures
as a *IPDS printer on the AS/400. This printer has a LOT of miles on it
(the printer - was the system printer for an NCR Unix box for 4 or 5
years before this past January's AS/400 installation...) and it is
getting a bit flaky.

We print between 1000 - 1500 Invoices daily and then after that it just
does print screens and 10-30 page prints sporadically throughout the
day...

So what are you all using ?

Lexmark ?
HP ?
IBM ? (or is that Lexmark now ?)
someone else ?

SMALL company so price is important...

TIA !

Chuck
