We need to print B&W along with color. I've tried a number of entry level under $400 color LaserJets and they all take forever to initialize and print the first page. Thus, we are still using ink jets.

I am tired of HP junk. What do you use that works well?

Almost all of our users each have desktops printers. So, I am looking at a make/model that takes an ink cartridge that is fairly popular amongst the manufacturers different products. This way, we do not have to stock a lot of various ink cartridge styles even if we move to a newer style printer from the same manufacturer.

Any suggestions as to what to use or what to avoid?
