    Throughput is not great but as a primary school the more we can get out of each toner the better.
    Given that you're not a million miles away you'd be welcome to come over to see the inkjets I've got working with CIS kits and get an idea of whether they might be worth pursuing as an option.

    There's a few options but in terms of finances you could easily go for a reasonable-ish colour laser (for special stuff) through IJT (they did have an offer on recently for free ones!) and a CIS inkjet for the bulk of work which would keep the consumables cost wayyy down.

    Like I said the offer's there if you fancy a trip to sunny Hoyland and see a few things actually working

    We run a Kyocera FS-C5020N here, with duplexer unit, and I love it, it has survived some serious abuse and the colour is great. Toner isnt that cheap tho.

    Yeh got several Kyocera FS-C5015N and FS-C5030N here and they are very good printers, toners are cheaper and bigger than the equivalent HP too, and the printers thermselves are more compact.

    The Dell C3110cn is a really good printer. Cheaper than the HP 2600n it replaced, and it uses normal PCL/Postscript drivers without any host-side processing.

    Its quick, it has a good web-based interface, and it's OS-independant.

    I also look after a C3115cn which is the same printer but fax/scan facilities. This is quite a bit more expensive but also really good. It can even scan to email or network file shares!
