Lexmark C734dn Heavy Duty Colour Laser Printer < half price at Printerland £284

Found 18th May 2010
First post so take it easy. I know this has been previously posted but there seems to be a price drop? Does this printer offer good value for a small to medium business or would it be best to go for something decent like an HP? Any advise or pointers will be appreciated.

When you start buying toners for this lump of plastic, you`ll need a mortage.

So does not sound like a good buy then, even at half price. Would you have any recommendations if your were looking for similar specs?:thinking:
Not claiming to be an expert in printers, not by any stretch, and I couldn't comment on whether the machine above is good value as I really don't know, but... having needed to purchase a colour laser for the office I decided on a Dell 3115CN for £299.99. It has copying, fax, scan to network, ethernet, usb, parallel connection options, and you can purchase refilled toners for £74 a colour for 8000 page high capacity cartridges, making cost of running approx 2.5p a colour page, and less than a penny per B&W page. Purchased it on eBay from the parent company of a well known ink re-fill supplier, and I can point you in the direction of the best value toners I can find if you are at all interested. Please message me and I'll send you the necessary links. I can say the 3115CN Dell is pretty good, it does much of what our other very expensive Ricoh copier does for a tiny fraction of the purchase price.
To be fair.. It does have a duplex..
Yes, I should note the Dell doesn't come with duplexing as standard, it's a cost extra. We didn't need it for our purposes. It all comes down to what you need it for. We needed scanning to network folders, fax, general photocopying with an auto document feeder, and the option to print the odd colour page now and then.
