I am looking for a duplex color (laser) printer with duplexing. I have had 2 Epson ecotank printers that have gone tits up in less than 2 years.

My wants:

Color duplexing.
I print maybe 500 -700 pages per school year
Wireless connnection

NOT HP stoopid ink prices.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Good point.

Two things:

1) I live in California where the "value" education above all else, but don't fund it like they value it.

2) I teach Special Education, and often, the best way to get my students to understand things is with color.

Forgot to add #3:

California values education a lot.

Hence, I am a 7/8 SPED teacher looking for a good value of my own dollars to help an extremely vulnerable population get closer to GRADUATING High School.

Ex, any other suggestions?

Ex,

Just re-read your post.

"giving" teachers....

Good belly laugh. Go ask a teacher what their classroom budget is. Ours is $8.00 per student.

For. the. year.

For SPED and Gen Ed.

Cheap color printer ideas?

Laser. Period. Spend the bucks. My first black and white laser lasted 24 years. My color laser is 8 years. No ink, prints every single goddamn time without a problem.

Laser is the idea! Make/model? Consumable prices are important. 500-700 pages per year - ish.

Dell 3130cn. You can buy them used or refurbished. Mine is a 2130cn.

Review:
It's extremely capable on all counts, and it has room to grow. The tall, broad 3130cn is as powerful as it looks. In our tests, plain-text pages burst out at a rate of 25.3 pages per minute (ppm), one of the faster times we've seen. Its tested graphics speed of 5.7 ppm is extremely fast.Jan 27, 2009

I'm seeing used prices from $250 to $400.

I think this should qualify for a bunch of people giving something for a good cause to a fellow sailor. Can you take paypal? Ed Lada setup something on paypal and we sent a bunch of $$ to help Ukraine and it's been a while. This coming from someone who got a degree in TE and decided just couldn't hack it. So my hat is off to you and happy to send some bucks as well.

Has it come to giving teachers color printers? When I was your age....
Teachers in many public schools have to supply most of their inventory down to pencils. Books, paper, whatever. They make regular gofundme pages, ask for donations etc every year before school starts. The supplies districts give them is meager. More money goes to school shrinks telling 9 yr olds they can be a differnt gender and dont have to tell their parents.

Its likely you couldn't hack most thing you have attempted throughout your life. You should embrace that and not let it eat away at you. It wont change.

What in the holy fuck is wrong with you? You come into a thread about getting money for a special Education teacher and start shit talking?

BTW, don't bother responding. We all know you are horribly broken and now you are on ignore.

You can get a complete set of toner cartridges (one for each color) for $180 total from Amazon. The oem cartridges claim 9000 pages per cartridge for color. Get one of the off brand ones that reviews well. The oem ones are 180 per cartridge.

I've lived on the off brand ones and they have been fantastic.

I use the Brother duplexing color laser. I have an earlier one of these: link.

Toner and supplies are cheapish, quality is good, and the device itself is only about $300.
