Does a full-colour (networked) label printer exist that isn't the Epson TM-C3500? Mainly just being a bit of a cheapskate here because I don't want to spend a grand.

The running costs on small colour lasers are ridiculous - stick with monochrome models that have large capacity toner options.

Epson are good and the fake inks always work fine. Or you can get one of their Ecotank models and just pour ink in out of bottles.

Run off full pages of CMY and K and see if any colour is noticeably worse, but at a guess you need a new transfer belt

900 pages estimated out of the starter toners isn't too awful. I don't think I'd ever put genuine toner into those compact desktop colour lasers though, it seems like a very easy way to make yourself poor - some of them can end up costing 15p a page if you're doing colour.

I'd buy (and have bought) genuine toner for mono devices, but the desktop colour units seem to have reached new heights in terms of consumable pricing vs. quantity.

Maybe something like this?

If you're on Office 365 then you can get in on the ground floor with this, but it's very beta at the moment

I'd pick the Brother because trying to navigate different scan option with a two line dot matrix display like the one on the HP is going to be frustrating.

Your budget can get you a decent mono laser printer with low running costs, you're not getting anything colour that isn't poo poo consumer inkjet for that money.

Mono laser is always worth it, except for colour lasers which you should lease with toners/drums/developer etc. included in a per-page price.

The ScanSnap scanners come with an Abbyy FineReader license, but it looks pretty expensive by itself

300dpi is more than good enough for printing out normal documents
