I personally use a HP Laserjet P2015, highly recommended.
I need recommendations for a B&W laser printer which will be used for printing OMR sheets and other SIMS documents and is to replace a HP 1200 which has just died. I would like the printer to have a small footprint as it will need to fit on the desk.
Right thanks. We've got 2 of those printers already in my other school.
Kyocera FS1100 or FS1300D (latter does duplex as standard)
Both solidly built, cheap to run (<1p per page), enviromentally good (no drum to throw away when you change toner; initial packaging has minimal plastic) and quite cheap to buy.
We use kyocera printers and you cant beat them in main office a sharp copier is used as sims printer / Scanner to dms
How about HP 1018? Last time I checked they were £40 from PCWorld. Cheap enough toners. Tiny tiny laser printer.
Other than that, we mainly use Kyocera 1030D.
I think them HP 1200 are good little printers, can you still get them?
We have just replaced a Brother 5170 (not that old either) with a HP P3005n for SIMS/office use. Although we looked at the HP P2015, we figured it would be best spending the extra on the printer itself and getting far better cost-per-page economy, which we do on the toner with the p3005.
Although we have never used Kyocera, I do believe in recent years they have improved dramatically, however we're a brother/hp school, particularly leaning more towards HP in recent years.
2015 would get my ok! whats it's work load going to be like? ppm?
Watch out with the 2015 for the bug that makes it keep reverting to DHCP randomly. Gets pretty annoying.
Apparantly there is a firmware update now, not sure if it fixes it

I've not had this problem and I've allocated my printer a static IP. I'm not at my desk at the moment, so I don't know what driver and firmware I am using, but I will find out.Watch out with the 2015 for the bug that makes it keep reverting to DHCP randomly.

Re: the firmware issue.. You could just set a reservation in DHCP so the printer will pick up the correct IP even if it does revert.
does anyone have a recommendation for a colour printer, possibly multifunction and one with relatively low cost per page. I have a brother 4150 at the moment, which is very good but costs too much, is there one that id built for the office environment but has cheaper running costs. Many thanks. Also one that sims likes
