Hp HP Color LaserJet 1500

Best HP LASER Printer for the money

OK guys, if you were to buy a HP laser printer, and you were going to print about 100 full color pages per day, and it had a really good page output per refill, and you were able to reset the chips so it will use the entire toner and drum instead of giving you an error when your toner and drum are still half FULL, and the printer was really reliable,... which printer would you buy?

I'm using a 1500 and it hasn't failed once, but its old, and the print quality isn't the greatest, and the page output per refill isn't the best either, so its time to spend some cash.
I'd consider one of these: CLJ 3000/3600/3800.

Read up on "disable cartridge check".

Thanks for the recommendation,... I'm considering one of the models with higher output, the HP 8500. I know they are extremely expensive, but if money isn't the main issue, what would your opinion be on that particular unit.

Main concern would be price per page / output.

I would not buy an 8500 or 8550 today.

They are relatively slow.

The main drive gear for the carousel is unavailable, if it breaks you buy another printer.
