HP Laserjet P2015N
I'm after a cheap mono laser that can be stuck on our network and forgot about, any good realiable cheap ones out there?

Another vote for the P2015N ... Except when 2 of them forget their IPs repeatedly!
Me too, got about 10 P2015Ns and P2015DNs scattered about.
Had REAL problems with Samsung printers ... awful devices in my experience.
I'm liking the Brother HL-2070N I bought earlier this year - very reliable and very cheap to run...
We've got a couple of Brother HL-5240s. Great little machines, cheap to run too.
We have quite a few samsungs and no real problems but those cheap ones listed we had the fuser go on one and it's cheaper to buy a new printer especially at that price than replace the fuser.
Otherwise the 2000 and 3000 series HP's are good.
I have real problems with the HP2015 printers. 1 of them keeps resetting its self to factory settings, they constantly drop off the network and require switching off and on for the server to recognise them again, a minor annoyance but none of my other printers do this. I also have a driver issue with the PCL5e driver which crashes the print spooler on the local machine when you add the printer from the network. This has only started recently, and HP have not managed to solve it yet (although to give them credit they have tried very hard)
It's possible these problems could be down to other issues on my network, but I've also had problems with HP2015 printers in a previous school.
However, they are excellent value for money, and the print engine on them is very reliable, and nice and quick and good quality, just a shame the networking and drivers don't seem to be as reliable for us. I've started buying the next model up, the HP 3005n, which in theory should have a lower TCO as the price per page is a lot lower, although the printer its self costs a little more at about £350 each.
Your users are doing this. If you hold down the green button it does one of three things, depending on how long you hold it down for.I have real problems with the HP2015 printers. 1 of them keeps resetting its self to factory settings, they constantly drop off the network and require switching off and on for the server to recognise them again, a minor annoyance but none of my other printers do this.
Just pressing it = demo page
hold it down until the orange lights flash = settings page
longer = factory reset
So either your users have piled some stuff on the printer and jammed the button down or they are holding it down themselves in the vain hope to 'fix it'/'cancel'/'reset it'/<insert excuse>.
As i thought a lot of good things for the HP, it was top of my list having got a non networked one else where which has been brilliant. Thanks.
We have a dozen or more HP 2015n printers. Recently we have had a couple of hardware faults, one inside warranty, the other outside. Both failures were due to the 'formatter' card going bad. If you research this on the WWW you will see loads of problems with these. The replacement cards are about £60, one of the replacement cards (bought directly from HP) failed after 3 months.......
