"We love the mailboxes! Being able to walk up and pick up our print jobs in our own box. When we had only the 1 output for all of our users and repots, there were always piles of paper strewn on the countertop by the old copier. Then, you would have to dig though to find what was yours. It's so great to have each users work go to their own tray, and eliminates having to run to catch confidential documents before they were put on the counter for everyone to read. Another thing that we like is how handy the thumb drive option is on the side of our color machine.
