Yes you are right, comparison back to old is unrealistic. I don't see many other printers who have new KM's on Print planet atm. I do see some probs with Versant 80's and Ricoh's in the other posts. Time to push the print button on the C1085 as she done the warmup. We nick-named her "Betty Blue".
Hmmm... at the risk of sounding bitter and twisted, the reason that other printers aren't talking about their new KMs is that we bought KM 8000s and after that experience, we're all now customers of other vendors. To be fair, we buy our presses to run continuously on a single shift (or 1.5 shifts during busy periods), so we put 120-200K large clicks on a month. However, that's what they are meant to be DESIGNED for and since swapping manufacturer, that's what they do with well over 90% LESS down time compared to KM (I kid you not).
