It is important to note that we are a Kyocera Dealer, although we do sell some of the Xerox product line, we are not a Xerox Copier Agent. We tell you this up front so it does not appear we don’t have a horse in the race. We do. However, we wanted to go ahead and let you know why we sell the Kyocera TaskAlfa Series over the Xerox ColorQube series of copiers.
The first thing, you would want to consider is your print volume. If you are not doing 10,000 or more color prints per month, you aren’t going to be able to make up the initial cost difference on the Xerox ColorQube Series. Given that it starts out $12,000 higher when you use the minimum advertised price for both, and there is generally about a $.025 difference per color print, the breakeven point is 480,000 color copies/prints. If you had this unit for a 48 month lease (some do 36, some 48 and some 60)… that is 10,000 color copies per month.
Given there are some weaknesses when it comes to mailings for the ColorQube and that the TaskAlfa does stunning color, for most customers, the Xerox ColorQube is a bit of an overkill.
