    Best printer for our Head...

    Our Head is (and me even more so) fed up with his Kodak AIO printer after all the paper jams and cartridge problems...it may have very low cost ink but has been nothing but trouble!

    So...what would be a good replacement?

    He wants colour but I don't know whether an inkjet (HP?) or laser (?) would be best.

    What do you use for desktop printers in an office like the Head's? Or do they not get a printer of their own?

    Take a look at the new HP200 series.
    We switched to the new 400 Mono printers and AIO's and have found them to be very popular, the 200 Colour units and AIO's look ideal for the one off office and workgroups Im considering one for home now.

    The Epson Workforce Pro's are well worth looking at if going down the inkjet route.

    Our HT opted for a mono printer but the Brother HL 3040 is a decent colour laser.

    Just brought Samsung CLP 400 - good price and efficient machines, but costly per page still.

    I dont allow inkjets in the school.

    I am not keen on inkjets but small lasers seem pretty expensive to run as well...

    I have an HP CP1025N at home. Smashing little colour laser printer. I wouldn't be without it.

    We have 4 of these at work. HORRIBLE!! Only has 6 little LEDS to describe problems (I require a dot matrix display). Black cart is same size as colours so lasts about 1000 prints (or less!!) Installing a replacment toner cart is much harder than it should be.

    Would be ok for home as ours have Wifi which we don't use of course.

    Cheap lasers are never cheap when it comes to toners. We have ditched HP's for Epson workforce printers now when we use inkjets though.
