Samsung's toner cartridge for this printer is rated for 20,000 pages. Does anyone know if they assume a 10% coverage as other manufacturers do and if so is it accurate? At $200 per cart that would be .01 cent per page which is the lowest cost per page I have seen.

Laser cartridges are rated at 5% coverage (i.e. a normal business letter), not 10%. Samsung use that rating, as does everyone else. The only printers that use a different rating are some inkjets that use 3%, to make it look as if the cartridge will last longer.

And yes, Samsung print costs are very low compared to the rest of the industry.
