We're getting a Xerox 7328. We were going to lease but the accountant is telling us to buy.
The printer was released in April 2007 I have no idea of the life-cycle on this sort of thing... £5600 to buy £111p/m to lease, There's also slight saving on click charges if we buy.
Any ideas? Pros/Cons?
I'd say buy it, but if you cant shell the 8000€, lease it,
we have one here and if you print contentiously you can go for a year without refilling colors,
I, personally, am a very fucking contentious printer, and don't you fucking sticky knobs forget it!
If you lease it, does the deal include free repairs and maintenance? If you buy it , does the deal include a warranty? I remember being at offices where there A LOT of xerox machine repairs.... they said they were part of the lease deal...
Canon are gonna hike up their prices next month so if you want a canon fiery thingy, get in there quick!
We use a 7400DN and it's kind of so-so on quality and eats toners like mad. Get it on lease, we did and glad we did as the registration goes wayyyyy out every month and the engineer has to come out at the expense of Xerox!
Did you ever go with this KingSteven?
I have a Xerox Doc12 with Fiery sitting in my garage, £1,000 and its yours!
xerox usually gives out free printers as long as you buy ink from them- works out best for everyone, as you can continually upgrade printers and you're buying ink anyway. this is what we have done anyway.
I have never heard of xerox giving away color lasers..but
I leased ours. A 7760 with the extra trays. Runs $301 a month + 11cents per color tabloid print. All ink and maintenance is included. If you buy any Xerox, you can always get on a plan like that for $50-75 a month. Great color if you work with it. Have to tweak the settings but better than any other color tabloid laser I have used at say kinkos or what not.
In business, always buy. Write-off, write-off, write-off.

- Actually dMullins, it is more complicated than that. You can write off only the depreciated value over 4 years, %25 per year. With a lease, it is 100% write off from the beginning.onekid
- What's your point? I understand how it works just fine.dMullins
- The point is that many accountants would say that leasing is a better option. You stated that is was always best to buy. I do not think that is true in all cases. In fact in ours, it is better to lease for tax reasons.onekid
- I always for get how short these notes have to be.onekid
- some jurisdictions lease costs are 100% deductable. at a low rate it ends up advantageous to lease.monNom
if you buy it what will service/repairs cost?
'cause it will break several times. trust me.
we bought, but with a service plan... we pay lower click charges than leasing and maintenance/ parts/ toner are covered.
