Have all these issues been resolved? I found this thread just as I was about to sign off on a used C651ex.
I think I need to rethink my decision. You seem to have the most positive reviews here, are these problems really manageable, I have a tech nearby who's ready to offer my click based service. before this thread I was 90% sure I was getting the right printer, now...NOT so sure.
I am familiar with all three models you mention. The c651/751ex is the same engine (65 vs 75ppm) and it is different from the c901ga+ (90ppm) in many ways. They do share a common mechanical registration system which is top notch. The c901ga+ sold new for roughly 2x what the 651 sold for so you have to expect you would get more bang out of the 901ga+ for your buck. Imaging and solids are better, runs/auto-duplexes 350 vs 300gsm, larger more powerful RIP . The c901ga+ has a much heavier fuser to hold heat at the higher speed and run heavier stock, also does a better job on textured stocks. Should be able to get a better click rate on the 901ga+ as well. The 901 ga+ is the latest version of this machine (discontinued in 2015) the c901 was the first oil-less version of this machine replacing the older c900, the c901 is rated at the same 300 gsm as the 651/751. The uprades to this engine to make it a 901ga+ are software related and it is possible to feild upgrade a c901 to a c901ga+. Hope this helps.
