    Default recomendations:- continuous ink printer

    Hi,

    We are doing more and more printing but we are using up toner cartridges like they are going out of fashion.

    So we are looking into getting a continuous ink printer and were wondering if anyone here had any recomendatiuons?

    Thanks in advance,

    Graham
    Cheers,

    Graham

    Looked at them and decided against them, the printers are just too slow for us.

    Actually we used compatible toner for a while, but have gone back to originals - you can definately see the difference, especially when printing barcode - one smudge and the staff moan!
    Regards

    Neil.

    Have you though about a laser printer? We use a mono laser printer (OKI) - It's really reliable and cheap to run.

    I have two of the tank printers, an Epson Eco Tank L355 and a 2550, one at home and one in our shop, I would highly recommend, no more problems with faffing over non compatible cartridges and the ink last ages. I do quite a bit of printing, but not masses probably 10 to 20 sheets a day. Would never go back to cartridges.

    Agree with niche, we print around 50+ a day and never had any problems with Epsom printer and the ink refills for the tanks are cheap and last for months

    You can't beat a good quality Laser Printer. Much faster than inkjet, better quality and the toner cartridges have a vastly superior page yield when compared to ink cartridges. Also there are some excellent quality compatibles on the market. One of our printers is an HP LaserJet P2055d running with a high capacity compatible toner cartridge which prints approx 6500 pages and costs 25 compared to 150 for an HP original toner cartridge.
    Regards,

    Laser ever time. So much cheaper, faster and better quality than inkjet.

    We have seen a dramatic reduction in our costs since moving to HP Instant Ink. However you will only get a good ROI if you are printing colour otherwise Laser would seem to be the way to go.

    We use inkjet, laser and solid ink. The solid ink is used in a Xerox Colorqube, really good quality, very cheap ink, and they just slot in when needed, a little like big, square crayons.

    Default Laser is best

    I am a printer and high speed copier specialist. For the lowest page cost laser printing is the only option. Beware of inexpensive domestic models though, some of them are no cheaper than inkjets. Kyocera make some of the most cost effective black and white laser printers and Konica Minolta offer some of the best colour page prices in the Uk. But these are machines for business and you'll need to pay the initial cost or consider leasing.

    I'm happy to offer advise one to one if needed. our supplies (NO INKJETS!) site is at www.printright.co.uk

    HI Nick

    Just from a user point of view I was looking at toner for our printer and there are two options with a big price difference but the listings don't say what - might be worth adding to this page the number of pages or hi volume.

    Also hi vol one has 1000 prints but think it should be 10000

    Hi Amber Pumpkin,

    Thanks for the typo alert. The correct page life for the higher capacity version is actually 1,000 prints and this has been amended. Some of this is recorded by hand while other items have data extracted from sources. We do have a plan to include this in the product and category templates in the near future.
