The xante line of printers are manufactured by okidata corporation. When they first came out with it I researched the net, found it was oki's machine with their name & started shopping oki printers too. I bought the Oki C9200 with has now been replaced with a newer model. I have looked at oki's and xantes newest printers and other than a little speed difference my model is still the same (1200x600 dpi). I bought mine on closeout as they were bring in new models and paid $1595.00 including freight from a company out of state (Discount Imaging in Little Rock AR) At that time the retail price was more than $3000.00 and Xante's version I believe was six or seven thousand.
I have overall been happy with the machine, and regularly run #20 bond to #80 lynx & hammermill cover on it. I mostly use it for 11x17 color cover for book jobs with black text inside pages run on our offset presses. As for the consumables cost, if I had known the cost I might not have made the purchase. However, you can and I have, bought toner refill bottles and refilled the toner cartridges myself. Search google for oki c9200 toner refill bottles, or xante illumina toner refill bottles. The cost of 4 bottles (CMY&K) is less than one toner cartridge. The only issue I have had, I have had with both OEM cartridges, OEM compatible cartridges and toner refilling is that the toner seems out from between the toner cartridges and the drums. This causes unwanted toner to end up on the printed sheet which looks like ink splotches on the sheet. I have discovered that when this happens, I remove all four units from the printer, vacuum out the excess toner from inside the printer and underneath the transfer belt, separate each toner from the drum and throughly vacuum the eccess off, especially around the drum where the toner units sits, just don't vacuum out all the toner down inside the drum itself. Reinstall them all and it works fine. My machine doesn't get heavy use, but is rated at 150,000 impressions per month. I have less than 100K on mine in 2 years, but like I said I don't use it much. I still have the original transfer belt and fuser unit, but I have replaced drums several times since new. The drums would last me more impression I am sure if I ran it regularly. I just don't have that much color copy work, mostly press work in my shop.
You can also buy image drum rollers, disassemble the drum and replace them making them as good as knew, the companies selling the toner also sell the rollers. Replacing toner or imaging rollers can be messy, it took me a couple of times of doing it to get the hang of it, so use lots of newspaper & keep a vac handy.
There is one company in Atlanta that sell brand new (not remanufactured) OEM replacement cartridges that I have tried and I have been very happy with them & will probably re-order from them. I will probably refill those too at least once each to cut costs. They are a fraction of Oki's & Xante's OEM cost. The name of the company is Color Imaging in Norcross GA, 4 toner cartridges was less than $400.00.
Anyway I hope this helps.
