Buying a laser printer - experiences with HP Laserjet 1160 or Kyocera FS-1020D?


I am after buying a laser printer (for doing leaflets and mailmerged letters, mainly). The two I am looking at currently are the Kyocera FS-1020D and HP LaserJet 1160. Out of these, the Kyocera has the better spec on paper, and some very good reviews (though a few reports of frequent paper jams).

Has anyone any experiences with these, or other recommendations?

Thanks,
Rob

Are both of these postscript printers?

According to the specs on the Dabs site, the Kyocera has Postscript 3 simulation whereas the HP does not.

Tried that, but couldn't find either listed. The LaserJet 1150 is listed, but no review or rating.

I have a Kyocera FS-1200. It's an older printer, but works perfectly. Any printer with Postscript support should work.

Thanks for the comments. I think I'll go for the Kyocera (and then post an entry in the HCL!). The specs are so much better - duplex unit, very low printing costs, etc.
