    Recommend a printer for classroom use

    I'm looking for a decent but economic printer for general classroom use. this would be shared by circa 20 workstations.

    Anyone found a printer they swear by for reliability and value?

    Ricoh SPC 430DN. Bit pricey up front cost, but if you buy it on the OGC contract you just pay a very competitive cost per page which includes toners etc and a same day on-site warranty for 5 years.

    A photocopier at the other end of the building and up the stairs. Amazing how discerning they become about what needs printing.

    It's pre-negotiated contracts through the Government Procurement Service, Buying Solutions - The National Procurement Partner for UK Public Services. For Ricoh I'll pm you the government contracts contact there.
