When to replace a Network laser printer
Posted on 2004-08-30
I have this old HP network laser printer (LaserJet 4M Plus) that I am getting maintenance quotes for.
How should I determine whether to purchase a new laser printer, or continue to perform small maintenance ($40 here, $40 there)? Is there a percentage I should go by in choosing whether to purchase maintenance or buying a new printer, such as a percentage of what it would cost me to purchase a new laser printer?
I don't want repeat maintenance fees to stack up on an old printer when spending $800 - $1000 on a new one might be a more cost effective option. Can someone advise on this?
