    End user looking for warehouse printer

    Hi,

    I work IT in a warehouse and I'm looking for printers that are better suited for the environment. We had 3 Brother HL-L6400DW printers that are not lasting more than 2 years in the warehouse.


    • Print volume is ~2500 pg/mo, but it's more like <1000 pg/mo during fall/winter and >5000 pg/mo during spring/summer
    • Brother printer would overheat during hot summer days, the warehouse only has ceiling fans, no A/C
    • The Brother printers would start to show print quality issues after ~15,000 pages. The longest lasting Brother printed 60,000 pages.


    My questions are:


    1. Is warehouse use just going to kill the printer no matter which make/model I get?
    2. I asked local printer service companies and they would quote me lease + service contract on Canon DX / Kyocera TA MFP monochrome printers because these larger printers are supposedly more tough. Is this true?
    3. What type of printers should I look for if I want to get away from disposable desktop printers?

    Good idea, the Canon iR ADV DX C359 is a very reliable machine. It easily does 5.000 pages a month.

    I have had good luck with Lexmark XM5270 50 ppm industrial printers in warehouse environments. The print counts often get up into 200-300k+.

    High toner yields, low cost per print, long life consummables, do not seem effected by dust and temperature. Toshiba and Lexmark BSD dealers can support this product.
