    Re: Colour Laser - any ideas?

    I have the CLP-500s they are good solid machines, and weigh a tonne as well! They are a great machine, much better over the HPs.

    HP4600s are not on my good list, the formatter boards seem to be going on them

    What about a 3600DN, would that be suitable?

    Re: Colour Laser - any ideas?

    Can I just make a suggestion on the whole laser thing..

    I know there's a lot of people who are keen on the whole 2600 model but you may be looking at a false economy if you go with the cheapest laser in the bunch.. I know one of my primary schools has the next model up and they're paying through the nose for consumables..

    In all seriousness I would recommend you take a long hard look at ALL the costs involved to make sure that a cheap printer doesn't equal an expensive consumable budget sucking monster.

    So just to give an example
    - HP 2550LN/EN (unit cost: £269)
    - HP 2660N (unit cost: £185)
    - Samsung CLP-510N (unit cost: £274)

    20,000 prints @ 10% coverage

    £984 - HP 2550LN/EN
    £1197 - HP 2660N
    £721 - Samsung CLP-510N

    (includes printer cost and any consumables inc' toner, drum replacements, etc..)

    Granted my figures may be a little out and they're based on the marketing figures but if you assume that all marketing people give their best figures to the same degree it's still a reasonable comparison.

    Your right Contink, I did those figures before getting the Samsungs, and the Samsungs are by far cheaper products to run than the HPs are.

    Aye... and do you want to know what's really scarey..

    To do a quick comparison against Inkjets using those same figures:

    Using official branded media
    £841: Epson D88
    £1581: Epson R320
    £1983: Canon iP4200

    That's how I got into this whole CIS kit routine and by deity it saves some money..

    Yup, Hence why I no longer own an inkjet personally, I have a CLP-500 and a CLP-300 and an ML-4500
