    Has anyone else got anything bad to say about the 4650 as compared to the 4600 or are they basically the same printer? I am looking for some new printers this time round and these look like what I am looking for.
    I am also looking at a HP 3600 for a room with minimal computers. Has anyone got anything they would like to add about these?

    Just to re-open this thread...

    we need a new mono printer for our dropin. It will print around 10k pages a month, looking at a purchase price of around 500 - 700, however... toners need to be cheap. So far we have seen kyrocera's that have cheap toners and some oki's aren't too bad.

    Anyone have any kit like this at their school that they could recommend?

    Brother HL5240L gets my vote - purchased one recently from Printerbase Brother, HP, Konica Minolta, Oki, Samsung, Kyocera, Xerox laser printers, consumables and accessories 127 delivered early the next day and set up like a dream - we have an aging Brother HL-5130 as well and it was on the strength of that one we went for the HL5240L.

    I use brother for all my black laser printers.

    We tend to put out the HL5270N for smaller rooms, and the HL7050N for the larger use rooms, according to the toner box for the 7050, it does 12,000 pages, and I guess the drum should do twice that.

    We get them from Welcome to Think4 IT Solutions (talk to Alison), they're around the 580 mark.

    For colour I have been converted to Oki, we have a couple of the C9650's...

    I could be being fussy now... but 12k pages will mean I'll have to replace the toner every month

    I found a printer yesterday that took a 32k page toner... now that's the kinda thing I'm looking for!!

    Sorry to be so picky... I gotta get it right this time!

    I'll have to have a look at my history on my machine downstairs... get back to you in 10... it was an extra high capacity toner!
