    What replaced the 4250N?

    As usual the reliable and robust printer we like has been discontinued

    Anyone know what replaced the HP 4250N series? The job of trawling through all the specs is not one I enjoy

    I can't see a direct replacement...to be honest HP's choices seem a bit slim a the moment on standard Mono't to push people to MFC'S!

    It was the one HP recommended to replace HP4750's

    Worked well in our school - but we had gone to very heavy color work output. The HP4250 was a thing of speed and reliability - shame it didn't really have a good successor.

    Nice try though

    These will be used in IT Suites so will get a hammering. The 4000 series have been good work horses for us.

    The HP Printer Finder suggests either the P4014n, P4015n, or P4515n.

    Personally, I'd recommend another brand. HP printer drivers have caused me more headaches than I can remember (probably due to headaches affecting my long term memory).

    From experience and forums the 'P' Series are nothing but problematic, especially on a network, so I'm trying to avoid them.

    I may look at some Brother Models.

    We seem to be getting a number of problems with our older printers. They are the good old HP workhorses; 4100 4200 and 4250.

    I'd be interested in which printers are recommended to replace them. We don't want colour.
