We had HP printers around the School for years then these guys offered us a deal on Kyocera FS C5350DN printers. If we agree to buy at least two full toner sets off them a year we can have the printers for free and they will provide us with next day onsite support for them. There is no contract once we have purchased two full sets we can send them back at anytime. We now have 5 of these dotted around the school and they have been working without a hitch for about 18 months now. If your thinking of trying out Kyoceras have a chat to them, if you dont like them you can always just use the two sets and then send them back.
Also we have asked lots of other companies to give us quotes on full toner Sets and Laserlife are selling them the cheapest as well. Not sure how they make their money off the deal must just purely on toner profits.
Laserlife - More than, printer repairs
we used these guys, www.e-sol.co.uk I think they specialise in education.
Have a look at the Sharp MFP range, cannot fault them.
Try UTAX devices, they are becoming increasing popular I've heard.
They are just Kyocera with another badge unless they have changed partner

This is what we've done with our Kyocera beastie which is an excellent printer btw got it below cost price for most sellers.
