Default Re: mPower or Neoflex???

I got the tradeshow discount, so I know my printer was nowhere near double the cost of the Neoflex. Everything I have seen points to the Neoflex being an awesome machine. Also, I do believe Peter's customer service is by far the best. At the same time Anajet's customer service has been more than acceptable. As I stated in another post out of all the equipment I own Anajet has been the best in terms of customer service.

To be honest when comparing these you are really comparing three printers. The only fair comparison would be the MP5 vs. Neoflex. They are closer in price and closer in prints per hour. That leaves us with quality, customer service, and maintenance. I believe the quality is good on the mPower, but everything I have read and seen shows it being excellent on the Neoflex. I am going to say my experience with customer service at Anajet has been great. However, I have seen Peter give out his personal cell phone on these boards, so that is going to be tough to beat. I live in a very dry climate, and the mPower's heads hold up a lot better than the Epson based printer I had in the past. The mPower requires very little maintenance. I spend about 10 minutes a week with upkeep. My Epson based machine required constant maintenance. Neoflex owners will have to chime in on maintenance and preventing heads from clogging though.

Until the 4900 is cracked I do not think Neoflex really has anything that compares to the MP10. The MP10 is more expensive, but it is also around twice as fast. It is kind of an apples to oranges comparison at this point. I run a production shop, so I do not have the luxury of retail pricing. I needed something that could knock out 50-100 shirts at a time with good quality quickly. Like John said I have the customer that needs 300 darks yesterday. On the MP10 I can provide this.

This is just my thinking. I really do think both companies are great. I also think both machines are great. I do not really think you can go wrong with either machine. A lot of it just comes down to selecting the machine that is going to fit your business best.

Well guys, I settled on the mPower. Efficency, speed and reliability won out. Plus... The only competition in a 300-500 mile radius uses a Brothers 5-series, so it"s not like I have a shop using a Neoflex to compete with locally. I fly out to Cali for training the 16th... So wish me luck and I'll post again once my printer arrives and let y'all know how things are going. Thx for the responses and good luck to all...

We looked for over a year looking at DTG printers. We had it narrowed down to the NeoFlex machine. Then the Anajet M10 came out and we took a long hard look at it and compared it to the NeoFlex machine. We like the anti-clogged head and it had a smaller foot print then the NeoFlex machine did. We finally bought an Anajet M10 and have had it for a month now. We love it. We are still working on getting the pretreatment down pat and adjusting the colors saturation so the images come out great.
Would I buy the Anajet M10 again if I could do it over? Yes, I would. It does all they said it would.

Default Re: mPower or Neoflex???

i had the luxury of going to the ISS show in atlantic city and was able to check the mp10 out in person it looked pretty cool, he told me it was 35k show special, which i know neo was 18k show special not including new viper pretreat machine which than they dropped neo to 16K. Anajet did print fast i was getting impressed until a customer came up telling me he is asking for his money back after 3 weeks of MP10 because he had a lot of problems with head clogging and losing color in middle of a print. Now i don't know how he maintained it, or if did someting wrong, they just told me that they were told they only had to do maintenance once a week on the wiper blade and other parts. But said if they didnt do every day they had problems. Once again i didnt see them in production so don't know if they caused the problem or the machine.

Good luck with your machine and hope you make lots of clients and money with it.

One thing I just realized from a member of this forum who attended the Atlantic City show is that you can get the Neo at a show with Viper pretreater for 20K. That's pretty awesome and makes me excited for what will come next year since I had to postpone my purchase of any machine until next year ...apparently getting married and buying a house is supposed to be more important than new equipment.

Postpone marriage and house purchase, buy new equipment, make more money, have a bigger wedding, and larger house. Win Win situation I'd say.

J/K congrats!

I witnessed the Mpower face to face and was definitely intrigue by its speed and quality at that speed for sure. NICE unit. My concern was 2 factors to consider

1. Why does its seem when a company feel strong about a product its almost seems over priced. Kinda like an iPad. I'm a Apple fan but my Asus Transformer was cheaper and does circles around the iPads but i still can't shake the urge to want one.

2. Anajet's reputation is tarnished in my view. I remember being blatantly being lied to about the most basic things when they were promoting their first printer.

This will always make me a skeptic. Then you have the kornit people who over engineer to the point you have to have an iron heart to deal with the machine lol. JMHO Top of the mourning to yah!!!!

Angel, I hope you had nice St. Patrick's day. I said that all day long to all who wore green yesterday "top of morning to you". I wear Eagles green yesterday. Golf club, driving center city parade and at the breakfast, it was fun and many beers which is my favorite part.
What is your definition of quality you mentioned? I thought Irish is tuff and straight. one of my favorite race.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

Talking Re: mPower or Neoflex???

Hi Second Husband!,
I sent you a post the week we got back-where the pictures you posted from the Atlantic City show, but have not seen where you saw it.
Great to hear from you and we are excited to get our new Neo.
I do have a question for you as I wish I had looked at the costs of the prints, I usually do, your tech told me it calculated it, but I never actually looked at the cost for the prints I watched you print. I have no idea what a design costs, like the Coke bottles with the girl on it you made for us (my son loved it and got many compliments at school on it). Do you all have a spreadsheet or something on that?
