Printer reviews help

Can anybody guide me towards a source for unbiased printer reviews?

I need to research the purchase of a new color printer for my office (small architectural department). Specifically, I am looking for reviews on the Hewlitt-Packard 8550n and 2600dn series of buisiness color printers.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry no unbiased review, but you should also look at this printer as a comparison to the 8550

http://www.xerox.com/go/xrx/template...US&prodID=2135

I have always found the output from the phaser (formerly a Tektronics printer) to be superior to the HPs as far as accuracy is concerned (the printed pages look nicer)

The phaser is faster, but repair is more troublesome than with HP.



The inkjet is good, I am running a couple of the 2200's and have been pleased. Looking at $$$ spent, problems, quality of output. I would buy them again.

Thanks for the suggestion 4KRG, but unfortunately, we need to stay with HP for support from our IS department.
