I have an older HP laser printer which has worked well for years - very sharp images for my Finale scores, but it's time for a new one. I use an iMac, Finale 2012. Any suggestions?

Do you need oversized scores, or just letter size?

We have two Kyocera 6970DN printers, very good print quality and reliable.

Mike, good question. Actually, I only need to print 8.5 X 11 letter size. I have Subito Music do all my printing of larger scores.

Do you need to scan? - copy? - print in colours?

If you buy a second-hand (older) laser printer, make sure that the printer has software, that is compatible with the Mac OS X version on your iMac.

If you buy a new laser printer, then you should not worry about getting “very sharp images” for your Finale scores.
Any new printer will give you high resolution prints.

I use a $69 Brother Laser network printer (2070N) for my Finale 8.5 X 11 pages. Very crisp printing AND I can hit the printer wirelessly from my other laptop downstairs. I write one show a year of 400+ measures and print the parts (usually one page) and put them in small 3-ring binders. I have a large-format Canon photo inkjet that is nearly 10 years old that I use for printing 11 X 17 parts and folding.

I don't use OEM toner or drums anymore; you can usually save big on Amazon or other sites and the quality (to me) is the same.

YMMV

I'm happy with the Canon multifunction I bought 5 or 6 years ago. I think any major brand mid-line laser will be fine for general score printing.

I just bought a refurbished HP LaserJet 4050 to replace my ancient LaserJet 4 that was a tank for many years. They don't make printers as reliable as this any more, I don't think.
