    I do not have anything good to say about them. If you want to hear about the problems they can give you. I would suggest setting aside some time it might take a while. But Iwould be glad to discuss it with you.

    98 uvx

    we looked at the colorspans two years ago when they were new & passed on them because of the problems some were having with them.
    but now i found a 72uvx & a 98uvx for a cheap price.
    the 98uvx was in service till march but the yellow head was damaged when they flushed the system. i was thinking i could deal with some problems since the price is low enough but if they never worked from new it probally is not worth it.
    i have seen some people that have had good things to say about the 72uvr & 72uvx what would be the difference between them & the 98uvx?

    we are currently running a roland 545ex but would like to be able to get into to something cheaper to run off full color coro signs

    we are also looking into a oce t220 flatbed & a zund 215

    i can't see spending $50 - $100 k & have problems with one, at least i wouldn't have to worry about it not making the payments if broke down here or there.

    what is you thoughts?

    If I had a dollar for every time my 9840 has broken, I would have alot of money. You can call me at 504-782-3200 to discuss if you have any questions. Last Time I talked to a tech at Hp/colorspan He said we went 9 months one time without coming to your business. I replied back that is because during that nine months the parts had been changed so much you were just sending them and talking us through it. He stated this like I had set some kind of record. Maybe 9 months is the longest they have not visited a business. Like I said it did break down in those 9 months. They just left us on our own to fix it By the way the printer is almost three years old.

    Thanks, Glenn
