Hi to all who read this!

I am looking into getting a new laser printer that will only be used for making transparencies and half tones for screen printing.

I currently have a Hp laserjet 1300 and it is giving me a lot of hard times. The main problem is that it is not printing opaque enough. I usually have to print 3 transparencies for on image a line them up to get a good opaque image and even then i have problems exposing the image. Also, it's pretty damn hard lining up 3 halftones. The second problem is that it's simple breaking down.

So my question to you all is: does anyone happen to know some good laser printers out there that is good for making halftones and opaque transparencies? I am very clueless to makes and models and what is good for what.

Hoping to find a new one around $500.

Thanks to all that can help me in the confusing journey to printer freedom. <----ya ya that was pretty corny.

One thing you can do to help this is to buy a can of Krylon Matte Finish 1311www.idealtruevalue.com/servlet/the-15055/Detail and spay it on the printed side of the transparency - it really helps.
