Mono Laser printers can be had for about £50, the toners generally last for ages.

I have a Samsung 4100 All in one mono laser that i use for correspondence. and printing web pages etc. Toner still going strong after 18 months.

About 2 years ago I changed to am inexpensive Samsung laser for all my printing in B/W. Much cheaper!.

I use my Epson colour inkjet only when I want colour, which is not that often.

it might be worth checking whether your printer can be altered to print in black and white mine can. Also check to see if you printer can use remanufactured cartridges or if you can use a refill kit

Remember though, check the price of consumables as well as the printer itself. You can get toners for up to 5000 prints, depending on make and model.

you can let the colour cartridge run out and then just choose to print in black only...That's what I do..
