    For a "specialty" feature that no one else is offering in this price range, how about a clear gloss toner and drum so with an Illumina printer small print shops could simply swap in the "clearcoat" drum and toner catridge and run the prints through for a second pass to apply a clear high-gloss perfectly uniform finish. The Illumina would allow me to short run postcards for example, but the finish still isn't as good as the results from outsorcing to a press that has uv glossing capeability. Ane I believe Kodak's standalone nexglosser costs more than two illuminas, as does a standalone uv coater or laminator, not to mention the extra floor space required. Why not simply a swap in gloss no-pigment toner and drum (wih no pigment in the start toner/developer). This could provide a $1000 gloss option that would make the printer be able to produce output with a finish quality unmatched by any printer in this or 5x this price class in uniformity and high gloss!

    Less expensive toner alternatives..free shipping!

    Another option for toner, if you are trying to cut your expenses, is iPrint Technologies based out of California. They offer free shipping and do have the C9200 toner for under $400, free shipping. Whatever you need, they can get it for you. They also sent me a free 3lb bag of M&M's. Damien is my rep and can be reached at 888 700 2345 ext. 7419. He is great to work with and will take good care of you, plus you get a big bag of free M&M's with every order. www.iprinttechnologies.com

    Toner

    There is a company in St. Louis called Pavyer that carries Xante, they carry all parts needed for the Ilumina. You can find their information on their website.

    Toner

    I use the toner from Uninet for my Oki 9300 machines. It seems to work fine, but it's not as glossy as Oki Toner.

    I read somewhere that silica is what makes toner glossy and that silica is the lubricant in Oki toner that eliminates the need for the use of a separate developer in Oki machines.

    It makes me wonder, if a toner is not as glossy as Oki toner, does that mean that it is not as slippery? And if it's not as slippery, does that mean that I'm using up image drums faster?

    I seem to go through a lot of image drums, but I have no hard figures to back it up, since I haven't really kept track of my usage.

    Ikon will be selling this OkiaData printer soon but with a much better feeder, excuse me, an actual feeder. They will be buying it from PSI http://www.printpsi.com/laser_mail_envelope_printers.htm
    It does everythingthe Xante does but better, better service, and a consumables agreement that is alot cheaper.
    Ive demoed both, and we are working it into our budget for next year

    Ilumina toner and supplies...

    We are selling toner to customers remanufactured by some usa companies. We also reset the Drums back to 100% and found it works for at least three set of it without having to replace the drum.... The toner works fine and also if you need to replace the Fuser assy. insert a new one in place turn unit on. When it read 100% turn unit of and insert the old one you will have a new 100% fuser again for 100,000 copies again. Probably it works with the transfer belt as well. That we have not try, but for sure it works as well.

    XANTE Ilumina Toner Refills

    Hi MrMunroe,
    UniNet is has made great developments in the Xante, OKI and Xerox toner since your post and the newer X-Generation toners have more gloss than before and is a chemical toner. This being a chemical toner is similar to the OEM which is more spherical which helps to give a more briliant image. If you would like more information on this or other toners please contact me directly. Thanks

    Hi Axl. No not really. Nobody can give you exact cost per page as it is coverage dependant as page with 100% coverage will cost times more than page with some text and few thumbnail size pictures. Plus unless responding party is in the same region as you are it makes it even harder to answer - some manufacturers run a different strategies in different regions, for example - high capacity toners may not be available in Europe and/or Standard capacity toner could have a different fill... In any case- to get a particular answer, please ask a perticular questio like : what is the average cost of A3 with about 60 or whatever % fill...

    We had a Xante and threw it in the garbage. The samples they send in mail you will never be able to duplicate. On YouTube there is a company throwing their Xante off a loading dock.
    Xante is a ripoff stay away.

    As far as article, I don't know... Given that printer being discussed is OKI C9200, it must be 10-15-20 year old article and no so relevant as to anyone who wants to try to disassmble drum from even Xante Ilumina series, OKI 9600/9800 - good luck with that.
