Hi :)
Actually just being able to print to A4 would be plenty.  It would be a huge bonus to the current 
state-of-play and is about the main way we would use the printer anyway.  

It's very rare for us to need the other trays and sizes.  Generally for that there would be someone 
standing by the machine coaxing it to work.  Also we have no idea how to use the  stapling function 
from the desktop machines or even while standing at the machine (hence why the staple function 
breaks quite quickly every time it's ever been fixed).  So a new machine wouldn't need to do any 
more than the basics.  
Regards from 
Tom :)

Thanks :)  Cannon have a reasonably good reputation but Hewlett
Packard have much better but all that seems to be for small printers
that are meant to be run for 1 or maybe 2 desktops.  I'm really
looking for something a lot more scaled up, to be run on a network of
only about 20 desktops right now but possibly a whole lot more later

This is not for 1, maybe 2 desktops:

I get the impression that the op is not looking for a _printer,_ per 
se, but for a copying machine that can be used as a printer, also.
That's a novel idea (to me). Do such things exist?

I think there is a need for that office to beable to use the "tall" 
office copier/printer/FAX machine that holds several large [and/or 
small] trays dedicated for different paper types and sizes.  That is the 
type that is in many of the offices I have been in.  On device to all of 
their needs.

The key is that Windows drivers would have access to all of the device's 
options.  What is needed is to find one that has Linux drivers to do the 
same thing.  It is no good using Linux if you cannot use all the need 
functions of the printer for your office needs.  Sometimes having both 
Linux and Windows computers attached to the office network that the 
large multi-function office printing device is connected to.

I searched for the best one for the HP laser printer that I use, for the 
tray and paper options, so I would not have to do too many option 
manually or need to run my laptop in Win7 mode.  I have to do that with 
my HP wide format printer, but I do not want to do the same with the 
laser printer when I want to print anything other than letter paper in 
the "default" tray.
