  1. I wonder what will memjet will do to the re-manufacture and compatible industry. could it cause a drop in toner or replace toner printers all together. for some reason memjet causes me to have a funny feeling in my stomach, in reagrds to the reman industry.

    • Yeah, this Memjet stuff fascinates me. On top of that, I can’t believe how many people just hate buying ink for their printers and how the ability to refill cartridges may appeal to them. Of course we’re talking about ~$700 for a printer vs. the $99 printers that most everybody hates because they need to pay for ink. Even if the cost per page were the same, I’m thinking that just being able to refill cartridges will have some kind of placebo effect.

      This is also a printer that is so fast that it will displace toner-based printers. However, Memjet needs to get its distribution handled and we’re still talking about marginal paper supplies. If I was a betting man, I’d put my money on the HP Officejet Pro X Series.

      • Terry – greetings! Thank you for the great site and helpful industry info. – it’s been a great help and service to the community to have your insight on current topics. Regarding the Formax ColorMax 7, however, I didn’t feel as though I got your personal, in-depth thoughts about the printer itself… could you add something here to compliment the Memjet point(s)? Thank you, as well, to Linda for her write-ups. Best, Sean

        • Sean,

          Thanks for writing.

          As a matter of fact, we are having a teleconference with Memjet in a few minutes in order to discuss how to improve the information pipeline. And, if we happen to score test units, you’ll be sure to see more technical input.
