    New 9200 Questions

    As far as Im aware its the same registration system as the smaller 7200 which we have. Tech has not been able to sort the skew problem or the automatic image adjust.

    FusionPro alternatives

    We use fusion too and I agree it's a bit flakey, our crashes acrobat quite a bit but I still rather use this than xmpie. We paid 8k for xmpie and then 2k maintenance per year. In our line it was sledge hammer to crack a walnut. Problem was we decided not to pay the maintenance and 11 months...

Xerox are a company of their word if you dig your heels in, we had both our Xerox machines TSG'ed in four years (total satisfaction guarantee) replaced with new machines on a lease contract.
