I want to purchase a lazer printer mono as I want to print cheap leaflets that don't need color. Wht particular specs should I look for when looking for a lazer printer. I want a machine that is good quality and where I don't have to spend a fortuen everytime the toner runs out. As I have been told that sometimes you have to purchase the drum and the toner each time you need more toner which can cost upto £100.

Take Care

P.S. I was told a kryocea(?sp) is a good quality machine and the cost for toners etc is average, is that the case?

We have a number of Samsung ML1210 printers for general office use. We've found them excellent value and hard working without complaint (from them or us). Some have a little quirk of stopping for a few seconds rest every 25 pages or so of bulk printing but it's not a problem.

They cost less than £100 from dabs and toner is about £35 from the same place. Toner lasts for ages and ages.

There are other low cost Samsungs but be careful as at least one model is parallel port only which may be something you don't want.

The ml-4500 is parallel port only, I got it last week from staples £74.99 and it's great.

Can endorse everything said by ?dstow and others - from bitter ( and expensive experience ) you can find that it's cheaper to buy a new laser printer than to replace toner and drum if they are separate ( like some from Brother ). Some tally and kyocera printers require £140 or more to replace t & d.

Check Viking catalogue for typical costs of replacements ( although jungle tend to be a tad cheaper in reality ). Also , beware warranty periods for refurbs at Morgancomputers - will 3 months be long enough considering volume of use? ( Not knocking Morgan - bargains can be worthwhile, but not in all cases - check dabs, though. Excuse length of reply.

Hope this helps.
