Printer troubles

Wondering if anyone has used any of these printers in an iprint envir.
I need to let my boss know if these will work or if we should try to
find something else:

Printers are all HP

LJ Pro M401n
LJ M602n
LJ CP4025n
LJ P3015n
LJ P4515n

We've already had some issues w/ the 3015s, so I'm probably going to
try to get him to go with something else for those, but any info,
recommendations, etc on any of the other ones would be greatly
appreciated.

We have one HP LJ3015N and a few HP LJ 4250N printers. I use the UPD
drivers from HP for both WinXP and WIn7. In the past we have had some
problems with the 4250's, but most were corrected with a combination of HP
firmware and driver updates. One issue still lurking is random tray
selection issues with the 3015N but I suspect it may be a user error. I
locked the console to prevent the users from changing any configuration from
the printer console to see if that makes a difference. Can you elaborate on
your 3015 experience--is it tray selection also?

PatM sounds like they 'said':

So my response to PatM's comment is...

Most of our issues w/ the 3015 has been purely driver related. I
pretty much can't stand the UPD from HP, it causes more headaches than
it cures. When we've been forced to use the UPD (v5.4 from HP), we
need to create a printer profile (for win7 anyway) to use w/ the
printer, otherwise it always wants to bring up a printer selection
window.

I sure wish they hadn't gone away from the 4250 & 4350 printers, they
are tanks and we have VERY few problems with them.
