    v2100 upgrade to v3100 worth it?

    Thanks guys. All very useful information. Yes the v180i (v280) might be an option. I tend to do all my finishing offline. (better for so many reasons). Yes I'm in New Zealand, no major supply issues here so far. Another concern is the fiery side of things. My fiery is getting very old on my...

    v2100 upgrade to v3100 worth it?

    Hi there. Any feed back on this would be appreciated. Desperately need a back up machine. (Techs can be very slow turning up). Currently running a Fuji Xerox V2100. (yes I know, old) My budget only really allows for a v180 or a v3100. (unfortunately my budget won't stretch to a v3100i) The...

    Is Xerox a Buyout Target?

    You might be interested to know Xerox has already been purchased by FujiFilm in this part of the world. (Australia/New Zealand). As a side issue I see you guys have been having trouble getting Xerox consumables for quite some time! I haven't noticed any problems with my v2100. I know our Xerox...

    HP N9120 Scanner wanted for parts

    Hi there. My scanner has a broken top feed tray. This is a 12year+ old scanner so next to impossible to get parts for. I know a bit of a long shot but thought I'd throw it out there. Or if anyone knows of a site I can get something like this off. I am keeping my eye one bay, gumtree, trader...

    Perforating on Horizon EF-354 folder

    Any one out there done this? Just wanted to get some feedback before I purchase the accessories required. I'm not to concerned if it takes quite awhile to set up as I'm happy to leave it as dedicated perforated. I have another folding machine. Straightness of perf, eveness of depth and...

    Stupid Question. Grain direction.

    Thanks everyone for your input. My thinking is "A" for the internal pages and "B" for the cover. (assuming of course I crease the cover) This way I eliminate the chance I'll get curl on the cover. ta Simon

    Stupid Question. Grain direction.

    It's been quite awhile since I have done any perfect bound books. A or B for grain direction. (see attached) I don't want the covers to curl when completed. Sorry! I know a real basic question, (I shouldn't have to ask). thanks Simon

    Purchasing Printing Business (digital only)

    thanks guys, all very useful stuff. I guess summing up it all comes down to ROI. Pay out a very small amount as a lump sum (more of a goodwill gesture than anything else) and an ongoing amount depending on actual sales. This way worst case scenario is I loose my initial amount and that is all.

    Duplo DC 646 v DC 645

    thanks for this info As I'm in New Zealand I probably won't worry about the one on "wirebirds" Did Duplo miss a "647" model? Same speed and rated for the same gsm for the 645 compared to the 646? thanks

    Duplo DC 646 v DC 645

    Hi there. I am thinking about purchasing a 646 (second hand) I have been offered a 645 at a fraction of the price. Obviously the 645 is quite a bit older. What are the main differences "spec" wise? I be struggling to get a reasonable ROI on a 646 (unless I can get one very cheap) easy on a 645...

    Xerox EOL Schedule

    You might have trouble with this. Xerox would struggle selling v2100 or V3100 if they published an EOL date. Having said that they generally will garantee support for X numbers of years at time of sale. I feel the V2100 will reach EOL at least 2/3 years before the V3100. Also it will very as to...
