Hi all. I'm looking round for a laser printer and wondered if anyone had any recommendation.
I need a mono (black only) printer. Definitely *not* a colour one.
I don't need a built in scanner/copier, card reader, touchscreen, wireless, coffee pot hotplate etc or any other fancy gadget.
But I DO need the ability to print double sided. And do it properly by itself. Not like one printer I looked at, the brother HL-2037 which purported to be a double sided printer but in fact incorporated a feature that tells you when to turn the paper over! I might as well stick with my old samsung ml 1215 for that!
Hopefully not be a hulking great monster that needs a sturdy table to support it.
I might be able to go a bit more, maybe 110-120 for the right machine. But anyone who has been following my little adventure in speakers corner will possibly realise that my budget is very tight indeed.
20,000 pages a month, assuming Mon-Fri only, is 1000 pages per day, every day. That's some hammering for something with moving parts that get hot!.
I'm just guessing though!
If that doesn't come off, I bought a cheap Samsung mono laser for my sister about 18 months ago. It's not duples, so it wouldn't suit you, but it only cost about £60 and I was very impressed with the build quality, and print quality... enough that I would certainly look at that make again if I were in the market for one.
This figure gives an indication of the sturdiness of a printer. Cheap domestic printers are not really designed for much more than 500 pages a month. In an office environment that figure is more like a daily requirement...
