    Recommend me a colour printer

    I know this has been asked before and I have looked at other recommendations but I need a ringing endorsement of a good couple of printers.
    We have HP CP2025s which have been OK but are now creaking - not helped by some rubbish toners.
    I need to spec up a robust, mid-range networked machine which will take over seamlessly.

    I would say that the printers here are well-used but not hammered. I dont have any figures I'm afraid

    We've bought a number of the HP CP3525dn recently.
    They are pretty fast and roboust. No complaints from anyone about them.... then again, they were replacing aload of HP 2600n's

    Oh...

    thought you said they were OK, but a bit long in the tooth... These are shiny and new!

    If you are dead set against another 2025-a-like then how about this...

    BT Business Direct - Kyocera Mita FS-C5150DN Colour Laser (1102KT3NL0)

    I've not got these in an education environment, but I've been installing these in businesses and for heavy use home offices and they've been bullet proof so far.

    I just bought a konica minolta 4750en for 170 from Misco but just found it here as well for a bit less:

    Konica Minolta magicolor 4750EN & 4750DN Laser Printer - Free Delivery

    We had a 4650 befre this one and the print quality and performance of these is excellent.

    Sorry @Oaktech - I was joking!!

    What about ink costs though? - How do the Konicas measure up?

    Ok... Missed that completely!

    The advice still stands. I'd be happy to use either.

    We want another of them but couldn't find a supplier - where did you get yours from?
