    Upgrading from the Xerox V180.

    I wouldn't ever buy a Xerox printer again after using the Versant 180 for a year. I can barely operate nowadays.

    Novice - buying a versant 80

    It's people like you that make people not bother with this forum anymore. It is untrue & not only have I spent 100's of hours trying to get better results from the machine but have invested plenty of money in attempts to rectify the issues experienced. Don't speak for others. My experiences are...

    Novice - buying a versant 80

    I got a Versant 180 in April. I would advise anyone against getting one (though many disagree)... I am doing far less volume on it yet spending far more time sorting orders.

    The machine is being sold off shortly so it matters not.

    I've not ignored advice, even purchasing recommended equipment but I agree things shouldn't be this difficult.

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    After a few days of "printing all day to get about 3 posters done" kind of issues..I've had to go back to doing things the wrong way ie printing on A3 to get an A3 poster with a small border. The V180 prints, I measure from the edge to the crop marks & it's fine....then I start using the rotary...

    Versant 180/ Fiery...how to get jobs in the "printed" queue.

    @t Yes, this describes the issue perfectly. It just irks me that I can't just find things in order in the printed queue.

    Versant 180/ Fiery...how to get jobs in the "printed" queue.

    I've dragged & dropped into the processing box & after printing it's not in the "printed" & also tried via the import method... with the same result. Both methods result in it showing in the held queue. After printing, It adds to the printed total (of 1) for a brief second & then vanishes.

    Versant 180/ Fiery...how to get jobs in the "printed" queue.

    Yes, tried that but it didn't change anything. Still nothing in the "printed" section.

    Versant 180/ Fiery...how to get jobs in the "printed" queue.

    Whenever I print anything on the V180, it fails to go into the printed tab on fiery. This means if I need to reprint something it's hard to find & time-consuming. I have tried the usual fixes that you find on google. I'm on the latest version of Fiery. First world problem but still... :)...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    I no longer really have the dust issue. Yes, carpeted room but the room is off-limits unless the printer is on. I ran an air purifier 24/7 at one point & maybe that helped but I'm really not seeing the dust /spec issue anymore. I do agree this was probably part of the issue with the 550 as it...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    My opinion after a few months more use of the v180 machine....& chopping everything down. Pro's: 1. Hardly ever any issues with dust, the extraction is much more powerful. 2. I can now print 10 posters in a minute & they'll all be ok to send. 3. It does print in the same position. every time...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    After a few weeks of using the V180 whilst cutting down from larger sizes & 100% Scaling. Here is my opinion: 1. The V180 is no better than the 550 if you are not reliant on front-to-back registration. 2. There is no noticeable difference in print quality. In many cases, I have had to use...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    OK, so I've had an analyst here to look at the machine...as expected it is user error (me) They did change it from photographic to presentation mode though which sorted the colour issues I was having & he said he'd had the same issue recently elsewhere. Cutting down from larger sheets is the...

    I have a V180 in my living room. :)

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    What I mean is...I could print at 100% & chop down on the 550 if I'd of wanted. I always used the scale to fit method & printed on A3 if I needed an A3 poster etc. I could go a few hours on the 550 & get 10 posters with that method...I can go the same time on the V180 & get nothing with an even...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    Bought some SRA3 as thinking I'll have to cut down now. Shame I'd just restocked on A3 as I have loads now. There does seem to be something different about how the 550 & 180 treat scale to fit but oh well. Kind of forgetting that I could have done all of this on the 550. I really don't see...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    Don't get me wrong...I know printing 100% on SRA3 & cutting down will give me the most control now...but I was getting a 3mm margin on 1 in 4 prints with the 550 using scale to fit but scale to fit on the V180 works differently it seems. @Ynot_UK margin looks great & I appreciate your help...
