We're on our second color laser printer in our lab. The current one is
the HP 3700. It is quite fast and has very good quality output.
Consumables are very expensive and we had a lot of problems with
refilled cartridges in our original HP 4500 color laser, which this one
I always wanted to try the Phaser solid ink printer that Ken mentioned.
The print quality of those is superb and they are quite fast, once the
ink has warmed up. I have used them at St. Mikes and have seen them in
other places, but we were too nervous about the total cost of the solid
ink and the longevity of the printers to overcome the "sure thing"
dependability of the HPs. I do have to say, however, that I don't think
that our experience with the HP 4500 series color lasers was positive
enough to support this logic.
I would really like to hear from those who have used the Phaser solid
ink printers for awhile to get a sense about what the true cost of
ownership is. We do a LOT of color printing in our lab.
