We have an HP 3800 and 3525 that both seem to be very good and trouble free.

The 3525 was about $900.  We bought the 3800 a few years ago so I don't have the price.

Walden recently got an HP 2025dn - double-sided, networked.
Color laser printer; print quality is excellent for photos & other color.
Teachers thrilled with it.

Drivers installed only on PCs teachers & staff use to control volume.
Full set of cartridges cost about what printer does -- however, the
original cartridges are, I think, lower capacity.

Installing one (same model) for a friend has had problems
(CPU usage to 100% when printing, minutes-long delays) -
I'll be installing a suggested new driver which may fix the problem.
