[Discuss] color laser printer

I swear by my Ricoh Aficio SP C410DN.  Drivers for Linux/Windows/Mac work
easily, the thing is built like a tank, and each toner color has two separate
elements:  one is a bottle of powder rated for 15,000 pages, and the other is
the roller mechanism rated for at least 3x as long.  I get hardcopy for less
than a nickel a page; haven't had to buy many supplies in the 6 or 7 years of

Ricoh probably has improved its products in that timeframe, I haven't followed
them because I haven't needed to.  Just Plain Works.  Tip: monitor your
supplies (with Nagios or whatever your favorite monitoring daemon is) and
order new ones before need.  This printer's Ethernet support for monitoring
makes it easy, along with plugins
