Colour Laser Printers

I regularly have to print out colour documents of 65 or more pages, sometimes multiple copies. It is a very slow process with my inkjet printer and I probably need to buy a colour laser printer. I am willing to spend around £500 - £700, does anybody have any experience of models to recommend?

Am I right in assuming that all inkets are slower than laser printers?

click here DRiM, but I think you will need more than £700 for a desent colour laser printer.

Q 2. generally laser printers are quicker, once they are warmed up that is.

Forgot to say, check out the price of the replacement toner for different Manufactures and their models. The price of toner can be higher than you think.

Good ones are expensive, though the cost may be less in the long run. They need toner and fusers etc. We've one at work (HP) and a set of toner cost somewhere in the region of £500!

If you've never used a laser printer before you may be suprised at the amount of page curl you can get, due to the paper being heated in order to set the toner. If your paper isn't very fresh and dry it can be quite a problem, especially if you want to put it through again to print the other side too. Try to get a demo before you commit any money, preferably using your own paper. LC.

We have an epson c1000, prints at 20 ppm in black, and 10ish in colour. Just been superceeded by the C900, which costs around £499 + vat
Printed 2000 sheets in 9 months, and has been great. Will be buying two more this year.
