    Can anyone recommend a personal Laser?

    It's for the Head. He's got a silly Deskjet which ran out of ink and being the end of the budget and all that i gave him a spare Samsung laser we had which struggled with big prints but was ok for one or two. Well that died typically so now the Head has to get up and walk across the corridoor to the Office..oh no.

    Anyway, i personally think Deskjets are a waste in this kind of environment and still think he would be better off with a little laser jet. Can any one recommend one?

    Thanks

    We replaced all our deskjets with Xerox Phaser 6110's. No complaints so far. Someone on here said they didnt like them though as they were too hot for their cold classrooms or something.

    At home, I'm using a little HP laserjet 1018 and it's the business. It gets used heavily and has been pleasingly reliable and economic with the toner.

    At school we have a Samsung ML1250, which was second hand when we got it 4 years ago. It must be 8+ years old by now; it just keeps on soldiering on and is very economical on the toner too. I would hope the newer versions are as good.

    I used to share this opinion, but have used a HP OfficeJet Pro K550 for the last year or so (in my dept and the Heads office) and although not done anything fancy like a cost analysis, firmly believe they are far cheaper when compared to our lasers (which are mostly MagiColour)

    What I said was

    Sometimes they lock up when printing large documents and stoped working compleatly after only 2 weeks due to the waste toner bottle being full after only 200 copies had been printed. This has happens almost every 200 - 300 sheets. To which xerox say well if its full it need replacing, the problem is?

    Also the fuser is at the top where the paper comes out and this gets so hot that in a cold classroom you can see the heat.
    Now add to that the fact it has now gone through 5 waste bottles and 2 sets of toner after just 1800 pages (800 colour) I wouldn't touch one with a 50ft pole.

    Take a look at the Hp Colour LaserJet CP1215

    That was it.. didnt really remember what had been said exactly.

    Is it just the one you have? Could it be its a dodgy machine?

    I have a HP 1018 at home - that's perfect for me but not sure if they still sell them.

    We also use a lot of Kyocera's and have one 1010 in particular which is 11 years old and still going strong.

    We have plenty of these and they are absolutely atrocious having lost their network settings, failed firmware upgrades, replacement DIMM modules with firmware versions etc on and they still lock up and explode.

    Bring back the 1320N!
