I've not been burned by any properly chosen device (e.g. TCO) for well
over a decade. Kyocera is my usual go-to brand, but since I haven't
made any purchases in recent times, my fanboi status has faded. Our
refurbished Lanier MP C2050/LD520C purchased last year in a hurry
without much thinking (or my involvement) is working out very well.

The way I used to do it, was to call some suppliers and ask for advice
and prices, then look at the TCO and details, including
Harris Tech, PLE, Netplus, Austin, etc the usual set of suppliers,
pick any $num. Kyocera only did direct sales at the time, but prices
were fine (in light of TCO).
