Our art dept has requested new, cheap to run (yeah right) colour printers.
So basically I'm looking for anyones view on a suitable A4 injet or laser.
I'm probably in a no win situation with one member of the dept as she always knows better!! Whatever I suggest will always cost more to run than the one her brother uses!!

If you want to win this one outright then take a looong hard look at CIS kits and printers that work with them.
The HP's are ok but as you're talking about an art department you're going to want something that handles graphics and photo images so we come back to the trusty old epson.
Rather than me repeat myself ad-nauseum do a quick search on "printers" and my username and you'll find a bunch of stuff on this that should help.

We have a couple of Canon inkjet printers which are relatively cheap to run and the cartridges last a while.

Been browsing other posts on this topic and thought I'd a good handle on whats probably the right printer i.e. the HP 3000's.
Currently they have some HP K5400 and I'm just about to show them some CIS (they've not been interested before).
Any recommendations for suppiers?

My Epson R220 at home is fantastic. I still have 2 drawers full of compatibles from when they were £4 a set off Disk Depot but they might have gone up these days?!

Ive just bought a Xerox Phaser 6111n for the house. Was pretty cheap. Toners don't seem that big though... Interested to see how it lasts.

If you're interested I have a kit I'm now selling myself although it's not one of the £35 wonders but more ruggedised for schools, has nearly triple capacity, etc.... PM if you want more info.
