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?

    • Hi Val - I've not heard this being an issue generally - very strange. OGI will be best to investigate. Would be good to know the outcome!!   Just a thought - is it only the extract / csv with the issue - or does the full printed report still not report these?  
    • Has anyone else come across this problem, we are getting quite a few cases where the renewal is not populating on the list.  OGI have been looking at this from the copy CSV lists we have sent them, but have not resolved this issue yet. 
    • Open GI Sanction Check Update!   Function shortfall now on the #OpenGI radar - watch this space! 
    • Partnership deals that are in the interests of Open-GI's profits and not the best infrastructure for their clients. HP - (30% returns from printers to servers when I worked for a HP partner. Haven't been pleasantly surprised with 6 more years of dealing with their hardware). Microsoft - Oh ook another 60 security holes and a zero-day (M$ product zero-days can only be fixed or mitigated by Microsoft) that has been actively exploited for over two months now. Sophos - Tavis Ormandy of Google's top security team, charitably wrote a 30 page paper, which concludes that the company was "working with good intentions" but is "ill-equipped to handle the output of one co-operative security researcher working in his spare time". Recently, they forced through Multi-Factor Authentication for their "cloud" management site (which has a really useless, coutnerintuitve and uninformative interface), that is completely useless in a ransomware take over, you could easily be left without access to your "cloud". They should implement physical keys if they are going to push for this, not software methods that can be taken over as part of an attack. 
    • The real question for Open GI is why is only 1 browser supported?   Why do you think that is?   10 points for each correct answer …
