Hp HP Color LaserJet 1600

Economical COLOR and B/W laser recomendations?

Recently I've taken over operations for a small office. At the moment, somehow, we are using several bad inkjet printers. They are all, of course, terribly expensive in terms of consumables and entirely inappropriate for our office needs. A few employees print only in B/W--reams and reams of documents, in fact--and would be well served by a workhorse B/W laser. Others print some B/W docs, and some color. They need good color quality for things like newsletters, but don't need the 25-cent-per-page price tag of our solid ink printer. I think we need two new network printers.

I am very much open to used or refurbished options. Not sure what to think of the newer HP lasers, but the LaserJet 1600 has been recommended to us for a color option.

What would you buy?
