    Recommend a cheap network printer

    I want a cheap network printer, we currently have a few parallel printers that are dotted around the plcae, linked to netgear print servers.

    I would like a cheap network printer(with built in NIC) It does not need to be fancy or heavy duty as it is for home use only.

    Colour or black and white? Laser or Inkjet?

    If its Mono laser then have a look at what I just orderd:

    http://www.pcwb.com/catalogue/item/LEXPR689

    I normally do not like Lexmark but for £74 (after ringing up) it seems a bargain. The reviews look good too. Typically for a Lexmark the consumables will be more then the competiton but I have bought it for use with a laptop trolley so I don't expect it to get hammered like in the IT Suite. It seems I am looking at £40 for a 2000 page toner cartridge after a quick look on the net.

    Ebuyer recently had a £49 Samsung Mono Laser, I've heard it works pretty well. The Kyocera FS-1020DNs are OK as well.

    If you want a colour laser, I recently bought a HP Laserjet 2600n from dabs for £195. Very nice little printer for a roomful of PCs.

    There has to be a catch with all those cheap lasers. Printer manufacturers aren't charities.

    If you're only looking for inkjet, the HP Deskjet 6980 is doing a sterling job here - built in NIC + wifi, goes for around £100...

    Re: Recommend a cheap network printer

    If you want a reasonably priced colour laser have a look at the Dell 3100CN I saw a review on budget priced colour lasers and that beat the HP 2600 in running costs as well as most other categories.

    The smaller Konica's look ok as well.

    Laserjet 1320N has proven to be very good here and it is not too expensive.

    If you go down the HP route, they are doing cash back offers again.

    I swear by 2nd user HP 4000tn/4050tn printers from Stuart at 1st Technologies (01254 878800). At £150-ish you cannot go wrong!

    the 2600N is a nice printer, i bought about 3 for school and they do the job well... and they are a good price, but thats if you want to spend that much for a printer at home

    They are indeed true work horses. Have just fitted a maintenance kit on one. 600K sheets and still prints like new.

    Re: Recommend a cheap network printer

    I would recommend http://www.laserink.co.uk

    We have a load of the refurbed printers, all with the HP network interface.

    They also supply extra part as well, we have just recieved an additional print tray, so that the office only need one printer to do headed and plain paper.
