I agree. I've owned inkjets before but now I'm a fan of laser printers. Inkjets follow the sell the razor cheap and the cartridges dear model. You pay a bit more for a laser but the printing cost per page is much lower.Best solution? Get a laser. Toner lasts way longer, produces better results, and I got this samsung laser on sale 1-2 yrs ago for $90. B&W, colour too expensive. I did the whole cartridge dance for a while and got tired of constantly paying $20-30 for cartridges. I have not yet needed to swap out the toner on this thing, it does over 1000 prints IIRC.
A colour laser multifunction machine would be pretty costly. Think $1k for a decent one.As someone with very limited shelf space, I've been using one of those multifunction machines (copier, scanner, printer, fax) for the past few years; they're much better than they used to be. Do laser multifunction machines exist or are they only available in inkjet? I would need to print in colour as well as B&W.
A week?Oh and I also agree regarding prints. I just move the images onto a USB stick and bring that to the machine and copy the images that way, a week later they call me to say the prints are in. They cost about $0.19 a piece, paper and everything.
Yes, I do my own. I use bulk b&W and colour refills on my canon printer.Anyone with experience refilling ink cartridges? What works, what doesn't? Is it worth the trouble?
Thanks for this lead...One point to note though, you may have to make a slight modification to your printer which would negate your factory warranty so if you're not comfortable with that its not a good solution for you.
