I would say Kyocera myself. The comsumables are very cheap and with it's dark percentage is excellent and with that set at 70% you still get a good quality print and save on the toner at the same time.
If you are talking colour then I would say Cannon. Epson and HP in my books have gone to the pack and their printers are cheap and junky and the consumables cost an arm and a leg.

CI, give me particular models Mate !
when it comes to printers, i get many different views and that makes me very difficult to decide.

Would appreciate models numbers!

The older HP laser jet printers are very reliable, readily available used, and very good quality printers. The older ones have many metal parts, making them heavy, but reliable. The newer ones are not so good.

My HP LaserJet4 Plus just keeps plugging along. The company that repaired the printer when I first bought it supplies refilled ink cartridges at a reasonable price, and they guarantee to repair the printer free if the cartridge causes any problem.

I am not an expert on printers, however.

With the Kyoceras ram I am talking laser and in my books all the models are good and you really only need to pick a model that suits what you want to do.
I have worked with many of them in networks I have setup and they seem to just tuck in nicely wether the network is MS or Novell.
So just pick the model that would suit what you want in the way of speed etc, but they are all good printers with small printing costs compared to MANY other printer brands.

You didn't mention if you wanted colour or not.
Is this for a production publishing or for draft work.

If you want colour & production work, take a look at the Xerox 8500

Hi Mike,
No for the rough draft work we use HP deskjets

I am looking for a coloured laser for publishing work, quality is the main concern and time/quantity are not the main concern.

I had a xerox phaser with solid ink a few years ago.
I thought it was amazing..
