FACTORS TO CONSIDER BERORE BUYING A COPIER


Although the basic function of a copier is same whether it is digital copier or analog copier prices vary according to the add on features and benefits which we get while using digital copiers instead of analog copiers including higher quality copies. If you are interested in buying a copier which produces colored copies i.e. color copier or the one which whose copy count is considerably more than the normal copiers i.e. high volume copiers then you need to invest 20-30% more as comparison to normal copiers.

Color Copiers, Copier Prices
 These are the main factors due to which digital copiers are more expensive than the analog copiers. So the buyers before buying any copier must keep this reason in mind. The older analog copier takes considerable time to warm up. This thing should also be kept in mind while purchasing any copier. The reason for considering this fact is that if such type of copier is installed in any office and there it takes this much time to warm up then it creates a mess in the office.

On the other side there are many advantages of a digital copier. One of the most important features is that all the digital copiers are multifunctional. Hard copies of the original can be produced, electronic copies can be transferred to fax machines or even as text to an email address. Thus there is elimination of several steps at office level thus increasing the efficiency of the work at the office.

Because of these advantages of the digital copiers, many manufacturers have stopped producing analog copiers and are relying on new technology based copiers only. Thus replacement of any part of the analog copier is harder to find. This should also be considered while buying a new machine as you might find yourself in a difficult situation in this case.

The second you need to keep in mind is the paper holding capacity of the copier to hold sheets in its sheet holder, look for a copier with capacity of at least 250 sheets or more. A copier with an automatic document feeder with a holding capacity of 30 sheets or more is a nice option too.Copiers with less warm up time are suitable for homes or small businesses where most of the time they sit idle doing no job.

If your copier is involved with the cartridge system then the average number of copies that a particular cartridge will yield before it is changed will tell you when the unit needs to be replaced. Also a digital copier is more efficient than the analog copier, while analog copier first scans and then produces copies digital copier scans and stores it in its inbuilt memory and then prints as many copies as you want.

Regardless of whether you choose a digital or an analog copier a buyer should always do some background research on the specific product you are into. The best thing is to get second opinion. While taking second opinions you get to know various flaws and disadvantages of different used models, so you try to avoid the purchases of such models.

Scanning feature of digital copiers increases the quality of the final image. As the files are stored in digital format in digital copiers it becomes easy for the users to send emails and faxes using these copiers. While these operations can’t be done on the analog copiers they are just meant for producing black and white photocopies unlike the color copiers. Some digital photocopiers are sold at retail prices which are determined by the manufacturers. Also you can get a considerable discount the list prices of such digital copiers.
