Question ID: 418817
I'm looking for a printer that will print on DL AND duplex. It can be either laser or inkjet. I prefer a price range AUD$400-$1000. If the printer has a straight paper path, or can duplex in one pass (does that exist?) I would be particularly keen to hear, as a straight paper path means I can use thicker paper without jams. (DL is an A4 folded in three - standard mail format for Australia).

Hi tocker-ga, I did find printers that can duplex in one pass such as the OCE 3100 printer: [URL: http://www.oce.com/en/Products/Printers-copiers-plotters/Black+and+white/Central+reproduction/3100/default.htm] Looking at past eBay auctions, printers such as the OCE 3100 are quite expensive(A little bit over $5,000 US) However, I did find many printers that support Automatic Duplexing, (most seem to have two trays) HP Business Inkjet 1200D Printer w. Duplex [Price: $335.80 AUD] [Order Page: http://www.techbuy.com.au/products/45632/Printers_INKJET/HP/BIJ1200D(C8154A)/Business_Inkjet_1200D_Printer_w._Duplex.asp] Canon PIXMA iP5000 USB/Direct Printer [Price: $310.00 AUD] [Order Page: http://www.techbuy.com.au/products/46048/Printers_INKJET/Canon/iP5000/PIXMA_iP5000_USB_Direct_Printer.asp] Canon PIXMA iP600D USB/Direct Printer [Price: $443.20 AUD] [Order Page: http://www.techbuy.com.au/products/46417/Printers_INKJET/Canon/iP6000D/PIXMA_iP600D_USB_Direct_Printer.asp] Canon PIXMA iP8500 USB/Direct Printer [Price: $539.70 AUD] [Order Page: http://www.techbuy.com.au/products/46418/Printers_INKJET/Canon/iP8500/PIXMA_iP8500_USB_Direct_Printer.asp] I can't guarantee there won't be anymore paper jams but based on the designs of these Duplex printers, I'm inclined to go with Auto-Duplex printers which prints to the bottom instead of to the top. Please let me know if you have anymore questions. Thank you very much. -googleexpert

Hi Thanks for the link on the OCE3100. I expected there would be something about - I've just never heard of it. It's a bit pricey, but maybe thats to be expected. If I get no other answers, I will award yours the winner. Just to clarify on one point: The normal printers will almost certainly have troubles with duplexing because it is smaller paper, and the paper is going to be a different weight.
