Replacement printer



Can anyone recommend a reliable/robust printer ?

We have been MSP users since 1/4/2016 and find our existing printer struggles to print documents some of the time, not all the time strangely!! I think it would be a good idea to get a new one and keep current as a back up.

Hi Sandra


We have a  DataSharp combined copier, printer, scanner and fax, with PaperCut software, which tracks who uses what on the printer and provides costs of the printer by user.  This has helped us not only save money on printing costs, after 2 years its never broken down and we've saved a shed load in costs.


We used a company called Buyers Buddy, who got us out of the existing contracts we were under and got us an excellet deal, if you are interested, please contact:-

All the best

We have stayed with HP. HP602 (603) . Most reliable printer we have owned double sized output hopper.

H3015 is a standard workhorse for normal depts. Also never breakdown.


You can tell if printer are reliable if the printer service company throw in the printer contract for free.

We only see the engineers for the Canon MFD's we have.

Has anyone programmed a Canon MFD for OpenGI  by the way?
