A co-worker is considering purchasing a new microfiche reader/printer.
I am unfamiliar with this particular brand and her comments are below.
If anyone has experience with this machine, will you please respond to
her directly:

I believe she is using it for documents that have been filmed on standard


The microfiche reader/printer machine we are considering is an Alos Z40.
I would appreciate your sending a note to your friends asking about
reliability, what they think of reconditioned machines, if a maintenance
contract is a good idea or a waste, 18x, 23.5x, 29x, 41x and 46x
magnifications are available - which is suggested, etc.
