This one was not very close.  The gap between the #1 copier, the Xerox VersaLink C405N and the number 2 copier, the Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE C356iF was about 2 to 1.  So the Xerox Versalink C4o5 is by far the market leader in this class.  Now we are here to help you get the right copier, not just the most popular copier.

Here are some of the things to consider when purchasing a letter/legal color copier for your business.

The first thing to consider is the print costs, especially in this class.  If you were to go with the Xerox Versalink C405 and do 10,000 color page a month, you would pay roughly $400 per month just in print costs than if you went into the A3 copier class with something like a Xerox Altalink C8030 which is more expensive up front… but the $400 per month you would save in print costs would have the TCO at breakeven at about 15 months.  For those who plan to run their copier for 60 months or more, this matters.

However, if you are only printing 200 color pages a month, it becomes a no brainer to get a solid copier like the Xerox VersaLink C405N  or the Xerox VersaLink C505.  We work with you to help you determine which copier makes the most sense for your business.

Will I be happy with all of these?

The short answer is no.  Not because the brands are terrible or because the copiers other than the Xerox VersaLink C405N are lemons.  The idea is the copier performs as well as the servicing dealer helps it perform.  It is very likely most of the copiers, when purchased from a reputable dealer, will actually work just fine for you.  So our focus is not to say why the other brands won’t work – they probably will.  Our focus is to let you know why working with us is a good idea for your business.

Here are some benefits of working with us on your next copier:

  • We can auto-ship toners and supplies so you don’t have to keep close track
  • We have the copier auto report meter readings so you don’t have to send that in each month
  • We work with your team to get scan to network and scan to email super simple – including things like scan to Dropbox, scan to Google Drive, Scan to One Drive.  We know the copier needs to connect to your network and to the Cloud.
  • We answer our phones and we really want your business to have an easy time with the copiers.
  • We avoid nickel and dime fees whenever possible, like automatic escalations, paperwork fee, toner shipping costs, etc.
  • We are on your team.

So, yes, there are a lot of copiers in this class.  We can sell the Xerox copiers and help you find authorized partners if you just can’t buy a Xerox from us.  We are here to help you out.  We know these copiers can all work great, but we believe we will do an amazing job for your business and getting you something that works.
