    yes, thats what they have asked for as the cost of running an inkjet has gone through the roof.

    What would you recommend instead?

    We have the Brother HL-2700CN which seems to do OK.

    Hello,

    Our reprographics department brought an Oki 9600DN a couple of years back and has been great. It cost some what (£2,500) with the consumables @ £550 a rainbow pack, however, it's fast and relative cheap to run (since the toners do some considerable pages). I know Oki have released the 8000 series printers, which are A3 Colour around the £1,200 mark. I don't know what they are like but could be interesting.

    I would never buy a colour A3 laser, always get a colour copier, far far cheaper to run and look after than an A3 laser, especially if you are going to give it some stick EG have an Art and Design department.

    The OKI C8600 costs £1166.59 through a supplier i use and has won an award with PC Pro. Small form factor and seemingly economical. Should do the trick i think.

    We are just looking at coppiers instead. going to get aKonica Bizhub 250C in on trail for a week the running costs look better than our current A4 Color Lasers.
    The copier comes with a maintenance contract so its not up to me/us to pay for services / fixing it. and the actuall cost per page comes out less than my estimate for our current A4 Color lasers.

    Time wil tell i guess.... it wasn't that long ago i was pleased i had irradicated all the Ink printers in the school...
