Need a good colour laser printer

Can any one recommend me a colour laser printer ?

My usage is not very high so it need not be fast - I prefer quality over
quantity.

I also prefer to have a network port on it so I can hook an Ethernet bridge
on
to make it wireless and leave it in a cupboard out of the way.

I have had limited printouts to look at and this is what I think:

Personally I thought the colour print out from the Xerox Phaser 6100 was
the best but its cost of inks were also the most expensive.

The Oki C3100 was the 2nd best for colour but the text and pictures were a
little blocky but its toners were the cheapest.

The Samsung CLP-500N was nothing special. But there wasnt enougth colour
printouts to make a good judgement.

The Lexmark C510 was OK but it was hard to judge it without enougth
printouts.

Any comments from owners ?

And also Minolta MagiColor 2300W. It doesn't have Ethernet port but you can
easily add a wireless g print server, wired version is even cheaper. Have
you seen the output of the C3100? I have the C5100, I don't see anything
blocky, unless 3100 is substantially different.

I have some printouts coming from Minolta.

Yes I have seen the C3100 I would say it was a good printer but it wasnt as
good
as the Xerox Phaser 6100's colour prints, thats all.

The design of Xerox Phaser 6100 looks just the same as Samsung CLP-500N so
the print quality should be similar.

Okidata is fast because it's single pass. I have both Minolta 2300W and
Okidata 5100n, along with Epson R200. ;-)

So, out of those printers which do you prefer (for quality) ?
