Hi,

I am planning to add a xerox/photocopy services sa existing computer shop business ko and
medyo na-coconfuse ako kung bibili ba ako ng bago or ung mga 2nd hand lang.

Merong mga bago ngayun na multi-function na..me printer/scanner/xerox..
Meron deng second hand..mga reconditioned at refurbished sold at a much lower price...

Kaso alng di ako makapag decide between the two...

Pag Bago:
1.  Papaconvert ko ba agad sa mga 'murang' laser toner?  Ung hindi genuine?  mahal kasi price ng genuine na toner eh..

Pag Luma: (2nd Hand)
1.  Lugi ka naman daw sa maintenance at lage ka lang tatawag ng technician.

Anyone have experience over this?

Been checking sulit and andameng ads kaso di ko sure kung anu ang maganda dyan.

Any tips? Thanks

 :D go for the good and quality brand kahit 2nd hand yan. wag lang yung talagang lumang lumang modelo. check mo mabuti ang output copy if malinaw at readable. good luck hope for the success.

I can just speak from my parent's experience with this business. Noong mga 90s we had these group of xerox machines na kaming magpapamilya rin ang nag-o-operate. Nagstop sila noon dahil nag-earthquake noong July 1990 (I live in Baguio) at nalugi ang mga negosyo. According to them it was pretty good business before the earthquake.

Gumamit lang sila ng second hand machines. Really, talagang madaling masira. Maraming mechanical parts kasi, at yun ang nasisira madalas. Good thing yung father ko is a handyman, kaya siya na rin ang technician ng mga makina na ito, so we don't have to hire and pay a technician. Ang mga photocopiers ay hindi tulad ng mga computers na nagtatagal na walang sira. It's just maraming mechanical parts kasi as compared to a computer.

Kahit  din sa opisina na dati kong pinagtatrabahuan, yung heavy duty na printer/photocopier/scanner na ginagamit namin doon, sobrang sirain. Parang every two days nasisira yun sa daily use. Kaya, basta may mechanical parts - ganun! Sirain!!! A lot of your overhead expenses pupunta doon kung sakaling second hand machine na may mga sira na ang makukuha mo unless you're willing to be a handyman yourself, para malaking tipid sa expenses.

We used genuine toner noon, but that was way back. I just don't know yung situation ngayon kung OK talagang gumamit ng mumurahing toner sa mga machines ngayon. For one, kung bago ang makina, you invalidate the warranty kung sakaling gawin mo ito. If you invalidate the warranty, hindi mo na rin maibabalik ang defective machine sa factory para i-repair or palitan ng bago kung sakaling napatunayan mo na may factory defect ito.
