Cheap Colour Laser
I've had a HP2600 die on me and I'm looking to buy a suitable replacement.
Although I understand lifetime cost - other people don't - so I need a cheap capital cost. easy to run, can be setup as shared printer on a w2k3 server without need to sacrific small animals

We've found Dell 3130cn printers to be pretty good. About £330 to buy if I remember correctly and decent running costs.
The drivers seem to be fuss-free too, which is a bonus - unlike the finicky Epsons that they replaced.

@geoff - the 2605 is discontinued as well AFAIK
£330 is not what my head would call cheap

Give simon from CPLTD a bell he might have an offer on or something.

Ok yes, sorry. In that case the nearest I can see as a replacement is a the CP2020/CP2025

If you really want cheap have a look at the HP CP1510. We have one used stand alone, but we did test it on our setver and it seemed to work ok. I don't know how much use it gets, but we havn't had any issues with it.

I would say avoid a Samsung CLP 300 at all costs. I bought two to use in our school, a few months apart so not part of the same batch, and they are now both useless. One lasted just over a year (just past the warranty) and the other lasted a year and a half.

If you would like any further info on the Brother range be sure to let me know,

Have just purchased a very good mid range colour printer at £380 very good value.
Only drawback is the paper tray only holds 100 sheets at one time although you can get another tray at a later date which holds 500 sheets.

hope this fills the criteria if you need any info as to where we got it then PM me
