Re: [K12OSN] Printer recommendations?

Last year we started using HP Color LaserJet 4700's, and they do really well.  Every recent distro I've tried (including CentOS 5) supports them.

Do you GNU?

we've been beating the heck out of a HP laserjet 5 for many years, it
just keeps going and going and going.

but we have been given a little money for a color laserjet, now it
will have low usage since I will restrict it's use, but any one have
any recomendations.

I do hope to stick with HP since we have had such good results with
em.   I know a laser is no where near as good as an inkjet for photos
but decent looking photos would be nice plus.

any suggestions

If we're talking older printers, then yep, 2100's are very good.  If you
can't get one of those where you are, then a LaserJet 4000N will also
serve you very well.  That's what we use at the office.

For low budget I recommend the HP LaserJet 2100 series (network card
installed of course). I have bought and donated these for the
church/school that I support. I know these are a little old models,
but these printers are very reliable, long lasting, and inexpensive.
Several models support postscript and all 100% supported by Linux.
You can also buy these on eBay ~$50-100 as well as cartridges
(5000-6000 page count) for ~$25 a piece. These printers are low
maintenance as well.

I hope everyone is well.

As a result of extensive help in another thread, I may be forced to
get a new printer for our small network.  We have about 15 or so
computers on our LTSP server and I'm looking for a printer that:

1) is black and white laser
2) has a paper capacity of at least 250 sheets
3) can be plugged into a thin client and works FOR SURE or is a
networked printer and works FOR SURE with LTSP
4) Can handle about a thousand pages a month.
5) Not very expensive since everything we buy for the Church is on a budget

Brand-wise I am pretty agnostic, so what have you found works?  I am
in Toronto, Canada if that makes a difference.

Thank you.
