    Recommend a colour laser

    I have £500 to spend on a colour laser. TCO is important, as well as robustness (hence the need for a new printer).

    Re: Recommend a colour laser

    OKI colour lasers are nice and the consumable price is reasonable. Also they don't have those stupid rotating toners so printout is faster too!

    We use OKI C5900 but I think there are newer ones out at the moment.

    Also consider leasing a colour photocopier.

    Double / triple check for compatible drivers before purchasing - I still can't get our HP 2600n to connect to any Windows Vista machines.

    Indeed, ours works a treat from Windows XP, I just can't get any of the sixth former's Vista laptops to connect to it! Have you managed to get a Windows Vista machine working with any of your 2600ns, if so how?

    Re: Recommend a colour laser

    the 2600ns are good, we have a few too, but imo theres better about, ive been quite impressed by some of the £250ish epson colour lasers recently, good quality and the toner seems to have quite a good life span

    ones im most pleased with is our leased printers, we have about 7 kyocera printers, though i wouldnt pay for them (there about £700 o_O)

    Re: Recommend a colour laser

    TBH... my experience of printer drivers and new Operating systems is that the printer manufacturers all use the new OS as an excuse to force people to buy new printers. You can expect new drivers in about 6 months to a year that are vista capable for the last years worth of printers but probably not anything older.

    Have a look at Kyocera, they will recommend the model that best fits and then the only things that need to be replaced is the toner cartridges. They are fitted with ceramic drums that prolong the longevity of the printer.

    Re: Recommend a colour laser

    Rent a Toshiba Colour Copier, far far easier and much much cheaper to run. Petrol and Diesel is cheaper than HP Colour Toners.
