I am using this printer Docu-Print m205 at the moment for about a month. This printer gave me problems till today. Every time, I print, I need to press 3 buttons to rectify the problem otherwise can't print at all.

I have asked the IT technician to help me to rectify the problem but failed.

Some people advised me to ask those that are computer well versed professional to do it for me but problem remains.

I have spoken to your local agent and they advise me to call Toll Free 1800881063. So far I have not done that as I feel that I may have problem in understanding the steps to rectify the problem as I am quite computer illiterate.

In view of that I have no choice but pressing the buttons for each printing.

Kindly advise what should I do as I have been a Fuji Xeror printer for more than 10 years.

Thanks & regards

I bought this from Officeworks for $88 and one month later I was trying to get hold of someone at Fuji Xerox to discuss replacing it due to an error saying "NO PAPER" (it had paper, which I reloaded a million time to no avail). No one would call me back when I logged an online support request, and while logging the request I saw that my particular error code was considered a "fatal error". After no reply from FX I rang Officeworks who said they were happy to exchange or refund it if I still had my receipt (which I did). I took it back to the store where the salesperson who did the refund (and recommended a better printer) said that I was lucky to get a month's use out of it before it died. He said most of the ones returned to the store so far lasted less than a week. He said (off the record)that they are a "total piece of junk,but for $88 what do you expect?" I now have a $300 HP which is going well. DON'T BUY A FUJI XEROX DOCUPRINT M205B!!!

I got it for $88 from Officeworks. Very happy with it except for the paper drawer which does not slide back into the frame and therefore takes up some desk space.

Pros
Ricoh MPC 2050
Cons
Docu-centre 2000

I read an article about the Ricoh MPC 2050 on www.multifunctioncompare.com.au which highlights its benefits amongst its competitors.

I found this article significantly more detailed than on this sight and it highlighted different multifunction printing devices aswell that can be compared.

The xerox docu-centre range although descent are well over priced compared to the Ricoh and the Ricoh MPC 2050 has won many awards in the same category.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
