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
4600 from ebay.
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.

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.

Both of them developed the same fault - fading printing on the left hand side. This is due to the imaging drum wearing out. I can understand this after a lot of printing, but one of them was barely used. The imaging drum costs £50 more than I paid for the printer!
The CP1515N is far from a good replacement for the HP2600, you will find that there is a bit of bad feedback on the net regarding this model so I would urge you to review this and mabye look at some of the Brother alternative, We have supplied a few CP1515N and have had a few moans and groans about failures and quality,
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.
