John laser printer

I am looking for a really good Colour Laser Printer.

I see the Kyocera W5100DN is one your reviewer thinks is great as it got 4.5 stars.

He says the colour printing is Exceptional. I understand is has some software which allows it to print very special colour prints.

My question is: I am an Invalid and can afford just one printer, will the special software print good colour pictures, and will it use only the black Toner to print BLACK text, rather than a mixed colour pallet to print black?

I have tried to locate a review on the printer reference you mention, but have been unable to find one, including looking on Amazon and Ebay, so I would suspect that the model number is either incorrect or a retailers special reference product number of a very similar model (FS-C5100DN ?).

If you are really interested in this particular printer, then I would suggest that you contact the manufacturer direct for advice and their full specification listing.

The first thing to accept is that although laser technology is improving all the time none are as good as a photo ink jet.

Having said that I have given up on ink jets and installed a colour laser and print on good quality hi white or laser gloss then laminate it if required. Ink jet gloss should never be put through a laser

Yhe coating on inkj et gloss will melt in the fuser unit and gum up the rollers.

I have owned 2 lasers so far a Samsung and currently a Dell 1220cn The latter was acquired 2 years ago complete with 2sets of toners and I am still on the original set. This is the link for the Dell and other machines.

SparkyJack - I have a Samsung CLP 315 colour laser, please advise the cheapest non glossy type of paper you use to get the best print, because you can not use injet glossy in a laser? Thanks David

As I mentioned and you affirm Ink Jet Glossy is a No No for lasers.

Laser Glossy is a shiny paper similar to printed magazine paper.

It does not in fact give a 'Glossy Finish' to the print because laser printing process simply deposits resin powder to paper surface and fixes it there by a heat process- the image remains Matt on a glossy background - that is why I also mentioned lamination if a gloss finish is required.

However back to laser glossy Rymans is where I got mine
