    B&W Laser Printer Recomendation

    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a good B&W laser printer. The criteria it must meet is the ability to have three actual paper cassette trays, (i.e not a drop down tray and two other trays), embedded nic and good reliability and running costs.

    The options so far are:

    Epson EPL-N3000 inc trays @
    Best Regards,

    Luke

    I find the manufacturer's insistance on terming the printer's manual feed slot as a "Tray" one of the more annoying aspects of dealing with today's printers.

    We use the HP 4200 line of printers with 3 paper trays. They are fast and reliable. However, I don't know if they fit into your budget, as I paid dollars for mine.

    At the site where I am IT Manager we run all Lexmark lasers, except for 2 colour lasers. This is as much to do with local service as any other factor but some are multitray and have proven fast and repliable, even under "trying circumstances". <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> HTH

    I'm glad to hear good reports of Lexmark reliability. They have some printers that I was looking at for certain tasks, but I bought HP instead, because I trust their machines, and the only Lexmarks I had experience with were the cheapy ink-jets.

    Re: B&W Laser Printer Recomendation

    I did start out using HP for both laser and inkjet printers but found that if I wanted a faster or slower laser (price driven) or a new inkjet that the cartridges almost never matched those of the models we were using.

    For the inkjets we now use Canon. I have managed to reduce stock on hand of cartridges to about 30% of the "bad old days". I haven't looked at the later ranges of HP so they may have changed to a more standardised cartridge configuration. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
