    We have a number of HP CP1515ns and are pleased with them. I'm not sure they have the capacity for a room of 30 computers though and we are trying out the CP2025dn for our larger rooms.

    B&W: Brother HL-5250, 6050, HP LJ2300n
    Colour: HP 2600n (never again.., got about 10 of these), HP BI 2800dtn (good for A3, and cheap), Konica Minolta 5430/40, 5650EN (excellent A4 lasers, 5650 have excellent economy) on LnL scheme

    I think for our main ICT Suites, we will always go with the LnL PFS scheme printers as long as they run it for. Printers are fantastic, consum. prices on the newer models are always very good and very reliable.

    I wouldn't touch the CP1515n for an ICT Suite, as it is designed for low usage and you'll find that you'll be forking out a bomb on the consumables, when you could have spent the extra on a proper printer and reap the benefits of lower running costs. We have one in an office used by 1 person and it does the job there, but for a classroom, certainly don't consider it.

    Looking for prices on the consumables, but can't find a price for the drum/fuser units, how do you replace them?

    Cheers

    We've just started using the Ricoh C420DN colour and SP 4100L mono based on the Ricoh click scheme. Been running them for about a week now and they seem ok so far

    We have had a bad experience with the CP1515. We find that the cartridges dont last 5 mins, well thats what our librarian told us. In our IT suites, we have B&W printers only and these are mainly HP 2015dn's which are little work horses.

    We have a few Dell 1720dn's kicking about and they seem to be ok, but the running costs are getting expensive on them now, they are re-branded lexmarks and you have to replace the image drum as well as the cartridge.

    We have just bought a samsung ML-2855nd for the maths dept or should i say they have bought their own as the dell 1720dn that they were using packed up as they use printers instead of photocopying, so we shall see if that lives upto the HP that they had originally.

    We have a a couple of old HPs still in action like the 2200n and the 2300n.

    If departments want to print in colour, it is upto them to buy their own colour (either ink or laser). We find that the best colour laser has to be the dell 3110cn as it is value for money, but other depts may disagree. The HP 2600n is is a bit slow on to print colour docs.
