    Another: Another printer thread...



    We're after a printer for work, mainly because the one we have is practically crapping itself now (prints a test page every time you turn it on, and takes @20minutes before it starts thinking about printing)

    What we need is to print @1500 pages per month (with around 6000 more at VAT time)

    The main problem we have is consumable costs (obviously...)

    But also, it is in a very dusty environment so it can't be anything too fragile.

    It would be preferential to have a multipurpose too, although a fax is not required

    It is mainly for printing invoices/statements etc on header paper, so it is pretty much purely for textual printing.

    It only serves a single PC too...

    Colour is required although is somewhat very low down on the list, as the only time it is used is to print colour coordinated labels in order to quickly differentiate between different orders on a single pallet.

    So basically a solid printer/scanner (colour) that's not going to faint as soon as it gets dusty...

    Lexmark/Dell is out due to consumable costs, and the office can't be talked around to separates or a laser option, so it is a purely inkjet affair...

    *Help me obi-wan-kinhexus, your my only hope*

    tl;dr, i need an all in one that's bomb proof, and with cheap cartridges.

    Can't be talked around to using laser @ 1500 pages per month? Nutters

    IMO the best solution is a small local photocopier guy, they charge .006p/copy B&W which includes maintenance and toner. Usually just an initial charge of £250.00 for the machine.

    Costs less per page than a laser according to HP.
