    Recommend a nice little B&W Laser

    Well one of my "trusty" HP8000s has finally had its chips and since the school has a nice color photocopier inbetween Juniors and Infants, I'm just going to get a little B&W laser for the junior corridor.

    Any recommendations?

    regards

    Simon

    Probably the HP 2055dn Simon...they are currently on an 80 cashback promotion also.

    Hope it helps!

    We have some of the HP 1320 printers. They are really good and cheap to run. At the time they cost us 50 each

    My choice would be a Brother HL-5240. We have a fleet of 5250DNs here and they're basically the same machine. Hardy little machines, with an easy to clear paper path should a jam occur. They're also running a 50 cashback or 3 year warranty offer on them at the moment too.

    Not sure of which printer to get, but where do you get your white toner from?

    Our white toner comes from the sky - enough outside at the moment to last us past Christmas I think! I think everyone else has the same idea though as there seems to be less and less as each day passes..

    I agree with this suggestion. We've got a few 5250DN's around the school. Great little printers. Handy to have duplex capabilities also.
