    Any NG members have suggestions for good/bad colour laser printers that you
    have personally tried.

    I am looking to purchase one, for home use.

    Under AUD$1000.


  3. Jackie,

    Just check out any of the Aussie PC mags (APC or PC abUser) for ideas on
    what's available.
    Also a post in aus.computers or a similar computer related NG might get you
    more responses.

    AAMOI, I have a Konica-Minolta 2300W (about $700) and have had no problems
    with it. Can connect via parallel port or USB but it is not a network
    printer, although you can print from other PCs on your network provided the
    host PC is on. Alternatively you could use a cheap print server.

    One thing you will find with all low cost laser printers is the cost of
    consumables - pretty high compared to some larger machines. If you don't
    intend to do large amounts of printing, then a sub $1000 colour laser is
    probably your best option.

  4. Hi Jackie, I have a 5M from HP. Does quite good colour prints on A4 only
    even though it can print A3, but its very expensive to run, so I suggest
    avoiding them.

    I bought a used Tektronix Phaser recently and it prints beautifully for
    about $400 - am waiting to find out how expensive the consumables are.
    Might throw it out and get a new colour laser when the time comes depending
    on the costs.
