    Quick ad-hoc survey - What is the most common printer

    Quick ad-hoc survey. What is most common printer you have and how many.

    Just want to get idea on what printers are common these days in schools.

    Cheers

    I've (almost) completed ditching HP in favour of Oki's everywhere.

    Our most common model is the B410/430, we have about 9 in department offices. Next up would be the C810/830 and the C610 (2 of each IIRC).

    We have some other random models but all future purchases would be either B411, C611, or C811 (or updated replacements) based depending on their location.

    A lot of schools that I have spoken to like HP Laserjets. They are quite popular. Second to that is probably Kyocera because they have reasonably priced toners.

    Mono (100) = Brother HL-5250Dn or HL-5350DN. Brilliant printers, cheap to run and hardly ever go wrong.
    Colour (50) = HP CP2025DN however we are moving them over gradually to Brother HL-4570CDW (hoping there going to be as good as the brother mono's!)

    All the rest are gradually being pensioned off.

    As mentioned on twitter. Brother HL5250dn x5, HP CP3505n x6, we also have a couple of Epson CX11s (terrible machines. Cost a fortune to run), and now a couple of Samsung CLX-6260s.

    We also have a couple of Ricoh MFDs - MP7001 and MPC2800.

    A lot of schools seem to be going with Konica photocopiers that also print, such as the C650 bizhubs. They are usually on a maintenance and support contract which is good because they frequently break down and need an engineer visit. In my current school we have two C650 units and we get a visit from and engineer at least once every 2 weeks.

    I have a Brother HL-5250DN on my desk for mono prints and only use the Konica when I have to!

    At home I use a HP laserjet 2600. Slow but reliable and lots of cheap remanufactured toners available.

    Around the school, a range of HP Laserjets ranging from the 1320N to 2015N and 2055DN, plus a large number of Samsung - ML2151ND, ML 3310ND and ML 3710ND. Just those two brands here.

    Xerox Phasers (mostly 8860s, new ones are ColorQube 8870;s though) due to running costs.

    We have a combination of Ricoh MFDs (MPC3501's, MPC7501's and MP8001's) and Kyocera Printers (FS-C8500DN's, FS-C5350DN's, FS-4040DN's and FS-2020DN's).

    We mostly use the Ricoh MFDs with PaperCut MF and fingerprint biometric follow-me printing with the kyocera printers in specialist areas or offices. Love PaperCut though - absolutely brilliant piece of software

    Kyocera FS C5300DN (through leasing). Good machines but take an epic amount of time to print out a batch of photos....
