    Urgent: Need Recomendation For Heavy Duty Printer

    We are using HP 1320 and HP 2015 for our Staff/Students for mono printing.

    ICT has now complained that the printers are too slow and too unreliable and are now forcing my hand to find a network printer which has a higher 'Duty Cycle' and can cope with printing up to 1000 pages per lesson.

    What printers should I look at to start with to move toward accommodating this request?

    Thanks.

    The 17PPM shouldn't be too much trouble. Something like a 4200 TN would be capable of holding the paper. Though you might want something like a 4200 with two additional paper trays, which takes the capacity up to 1,500 sheets (3 reams).

    In this "current economy crisis" (as theo pathitas puts it) i would more worry about reducing the amounts of prints needed than trying to cope for a rediculous amount of printing.

    we use 3005n's and 2420n's

    our sims report person has a 4250tn for student reports.

    be aware that hp have recently put there toner prices through the roof.

    1000 pages per lesson is a lot! what are they printing!

    I would agree 1000 pages a lesson is ridiculous.

    I would have to agree with the others about that much printing, could you not get them to cut the amount of printing they need, then maybe the printer would not be such a huge issue.

    We had this at one point and found that the teachers where using the printer as a photocopier and printing all the handouts they needed for each lesson. Once they where threatened with running costs they soon stopped.

    But if you still need a printer i second the vote for the 4250's they are very good.

    Even I'm balking at 1,000 pages per lesson...

    That's going to be an average of £30 per lesson just on an average printing cost of 3ppp without taking into account paper and that's just text output..

    You're more likely to be expecting £60+ per lesson when you throw in the odd graphic!


    No, sorry, that's nuts... someone needs a slap upside the head on the specification and a reality check with a clue bat.

    lol, even our cheap prices have gone up, still far cheaper than retail.

    we have a reliable good compatible supplier we use at the moment we use for mono toners,

    hp colour ones are extortionate at the minute!

    another thumbs up for the 3005 and 4250 here. we use 4250s for staff printing (higher speed, high volume), and 3005s for Dept and students (quick enough, damn good).

    look at KYOCERA printers their prices are about the same as HP for the printers give or take, the toner is cheaper, and the toner does more miles (last alot longer)

    we are looking at replacing all our printers with kyoceras soon
