Try www.pricespy.co.nz - I have just tried it this morning and their website is saying that their server is overworked or something. At the top of the page, click printers and follow your nose...

Ummm ..... yeah, I know about Pricespy.

What I was really wanting was if anybody had any experiences with colour lasers here and would recommend one particular brand over another.

This post couldnt have come at a better time, as a friend has asked me to do a bit of research for him on some cheap, but still good quality Color Laser Printers.

He's had a really good run with an older model Kyocera Laser and was wanting to know if the Kyocera Color Laser produce similar results? Either that or any other recommendations, just as antmannz is after :-)

We purchased a Ricoh AP206 colour laser about 8 months ago and are rapt with teh quality, even on plain paper. Price was $1295 +GST but (as has been thrased out in the past here) they only come with 30% filled toner carts. New toners for spare put aside $800 or so...but we would buy another, the quality is that impressive for teh price.

andrew93..... Easy, ask for a price for a toner cartridge replacement. That will "stun" you. :D :D PJ

Yeah, the cost of cartridges isn't cheap (unless you refill/remanufacture them yourself :D ) - although IBM have recently released a range of cartridges compatible with the most common HP laser printers - they are a lot less than the HP equivalents.

Talking of stunning, I read somewhere that the cost of ink in the inkjet cartridges is more per ml than champagne! There's an incentive to never buy an inkjet printer.

Not if you refill the cartridges!
