OT / Basic Color Printers

Can you stand one more:

HP2660N $399 Color Laser NETWORK ready. Once you install the software on
the client, it finds the printer without you. Even with the color cartridges
at $100 a pop, you get many, many more pages from one of those cartridges
than a #78 color for an inkjet...not to mention better stability of the
color once it is printed. It is a single pass, and unlike the 2600 from
last year, there is no "carousel" of cartridges, so less mechanical parts to
break.

When I calculated the cost of ownership over the life of the printer, not to
mention not filling up the landfill with old inkjet printers, the difference
in price per page was almost 13 cents a page!!!!

PC Connection has a promotion where you can get a HP Deskjet 3650 free with
a purchase of $25.00, it expires 9/30/05, and limit of 5. You have to pay
and then wait for a rebate, but it's a pretty decent printer and can't beat
the price! (Their item# 450146).

We are looking to replace a couple of old HP DeskJet 672C's. Anyone
have any opinions on small color ink jet printers for light office
use? Brands and models under or around $100/ea? A couple that I am
looking at are the Epson Stylus C86, HP Deskjet 6540 and Deskjet 5740.

Thanks!

Depending on how much color you print I would recommend purchasing a color laser printer. The start up cost is about $1000.00 including ink however, you will save in the long run on inkjet cartridges. The base price for the Xerox Phaser 8500N is $899.00. This is a network printer that can used by many people. This is a great printer for quality, speed and cost.

IF you get the Ricoh CL2000N you can save even more, I'm running 2 and
getting one more right now. To tell you the truth the overall CoO is
lower than a low end color inkjet. They're priced like that because the
manufacturer makes the money back in selling you ink.
The overall cost of printing 15k pages on a CL2000 is as follows:

~$650 printer
~$200 toner
~$20 waste toner collector

After around 30k copies you will have to change the fuser and that will
cost $250

A color laser would be overkill for this application. The printer
will see only a couple pages a day, at the most. We have Laserjets
for regular documents and this is just to keep the internal use
items we need in color off of the HP Design Jets.

I'll check out that 3650, CDW appears to have a similar offer on the
Epson C86.

Thanks!
