HP Color LaserJet 2500tn

 

The 2500tn model delivers solid print quality at a low cost per page, and it's well priced for small-business users who need volume color printing.

Good-quality text and graphics printouts; inexpensive base model; low cost per page; good service and support; Mac and PC compatible

Text print speeds are a bit slow compared to those of other lasers; additional paper trays and networking really jack up the price

HP Color LaserJet 2500 Review

 

A crisp and colorful laser printer that most offices can afford, Easy setup and maintenance

Not quite compact or quiet enough for desktop placement, A bit pricey when configured with paper trays and network port

On the minus side, HP isn't that thrifty compared to its abovementioned rival Minolta-QMS; the latter's new Magicolor 2300DL packs comparable size and speed but is priced at $799 with Ethernet as well as parallel and USB interfaces, so if you can live...
