** Print speed indicates an approximate print speed and is measured from the time a card drops into the output hopper to the time the next card drops into the output hopper. Print speeds do not include encoding time or the time needed for the PC to process the image. Process time is dependent on the size of the file, the CPU, amount of RAM and the amount of available resources at the time of the print.
"The website was easy to manage and I appreciated the courtesy email from a live person (not a generic email address I wouldn't be able to reply to). The product came quickly and was easy to set up. It couldn't have worked better."
"I attempted to order this particular product from several online vendors, and was sadly disappointed with the poor service of these companies, as well as their abysmal turn around wait. However, I turned to Clary business machines because of high customer reviews. Placing my order,I heard from Clary within the hour, with several follow up emails. On top of that, my order shipped within 4 days! When I attempted to order the same product from certain mainstream electronics vendors, I had waited over a month for word on my order to be shipped, to my disappointment. Eventually, I canceled the order and had nearly given up hope on finding my product. Thanks to CBM, I will have my product sooner then I had ever hoped."
