View Full Version : Color laser printer recommendation

Anyone with any experience with these? I've had some good experiences with the HP4500 but looking for something a little faster when it comes to color. Money's not really a problem.

the most amazing quality of photos ive seen comes fromt he epson 870...... if money isnt a n issue...you can get one of these for arround 200...thing is they dont have a black in cartridge just a color so it uses up ink like a mofo...but i havent seen better yet...

I'm actually looking for a laser printer, something that can pump out hundreds of docs in a short amount of time. It's not for me personally, for my company (of course I'll abuse it as well hehe) so I'm OK to drop a few grand on one.

thats my fault...didnt notice you said laser
in that case...go hp.... hp kicks arse in laser writers hands down
I have a Xerox NC60 which has served me very well. That Lexmark looks pretty good though.
I think no one will blame you for buying HP.
Wasn't there a deal where if you got a ricoh color laser, they'd throw in a B&W laser for free? I think its from buy.com
My old work got an HP laserjet that printed color on 11x17. No problems, but it was only used for printing redlined documents, and the occasional map. The quality was pretty poor for pictures.

We got an Okidata C7200N at work and it is great, the color is great and because it is single pass it is very fast. I think it is also similar to the Xerox 1235 which Popular Mechanics just did a write up on. They said it will do 12ppm in color (same as okidata) and it says 200ppm in black and white (just checked Xerox's web site, that should be 20ppm, Popular Mechanics screwed that up). Retail is $3599. But like I said I think they are the same, they look identical.

At work we have an OKIDATA 8C
Its a great Printer..pretty fast too
Got a brand new Lexmark Optra Color 1200 still in the box here that is suppose to be kick arse but lazified to check it out not to mention it looks huge, well at least the box is. Now as for the HP LaserJet 4500, got one of those last year and haven't had any troubles out of it at all. Yes the 4500 isn't the quickest thing running but definitely is reliable. The Lexmark if I remember right does 12 pages a minute of color and black and white. Thats all I can tell you about that oh and the price we paid for it $3540 shipped from Technology America, hey they got money to burn here and that makes me sick.
