We need a few printers for our small office. We are going to place a printer at each floor of our three-story building. We are looking for a multifunction device, Black & White and color laser printer now.
If we give up to have a model with a color laser printing, we can afford a model such as HP Officejet 7400 series, which includes functions such as color printing, faxing, copying and scanning. For the price of $500, we will get the All-in-One which has Ethernet and Wireless connectivities. HP Officejet 9100 series which costs less than $1000, seems to me OK!, too.
However these kinds of All-in-Ones from HP are models with color-inkjet... Should we compromise on the All-in-One...!? What do you think...!?
Usually a model with a color laser printing costs more than $1000 without a fax or wireless connectivity, doesn't it?
We are going to purchase a Black & White ($300) and color laser printers (less than $1000) for our main small office. Under the present situation, we need high volume black & white printing and low volume color or portable printing. We do not need an excellent photographic printing quality, but just a printer for color printing.
We are going to connect all-in-one to our server (Windows 2000 or 2003 server) via a USB or parallel port and share it through the Windows printer-sharing system. We really need Ethernet and also wireless connectivities.
Please tell us a better model with a color laser printing, which costs less than $2000 and includes functions such as color printing, faxing, copying and scanning and Ethernet and Wireless connectivities, if somebody else here knows.
Or please help us to choose a right one for our office!
