Hi EEs,

Greetings,

I have to buy one LaserJet Black & White Printer which must be cost effective in the matter of cartridge. I mean i must get as low as possible per page cost, (Kindly tell me per page cost for what you suggest)

We print 1500-2000 docs per month, & i need only black & white printer not MFP, but must be network printer,

Some one advised me "HP LaserJet Enterprise P3010 Printer series",

But i need you experts to advice me which will be the best Black & white Cost Effective Priter?

Kindly let me know as soon as possible,

Many thanks in advance,

I suggest any HP laserjet printer, they start with 2500 pages/toner and you have many manufacturers of HP toners in the market, they sell the non original ones for half the cost of the original and I have tried them to give the same print quality(almost) further more some the printer will identify as the original toner!!!

That's what I do to print cheap!!! I have a HP LaserJet P1005 it's very cheap!

We use 2055DN and use the CP505X larger toner and they pay for themselves in no time.

Thanks for your prompt reply,
HP 2500 is a color printer series & discontinued by HP from last 12+ months...
What is the approx cost of the non original toners,
Does non original toners effect to the printer performance or can damage the printer?
Can this non original toners be refilled?

Pls advice any other Black & White Printers?

Awaiting for your earlier reply,

Thanks once again,

I'd move away from HP, probably heading towards Kyocera for low running costs...Toner is cheaper as is the device...
Do go for PCL/PS based device where possible for workgroup printing support.

i.e. the Kyocera FS-1370DN  is a 35ppm device, network and duplex ready. Mono Only, yet only the £200 including VAT.

They do an 1120DN, but it's engine is slower and only a few pounds cheaper.

We've used Kyocera as backup printer/invoice printing without issues apart from old age.

The Brother HL2250DN is also an option - again network and duplex. We use the colour model of this for home workers. - only 26ppm, but under £130. However this may run slower as it appears to be host based....

Kyocera are indeed inexpensive to run. For performance my preference is Xerox. Have a look at the Phaser 4510.

In general you'll find that the more expensive printers have lower cost per page. The cartridges may be just as expensive, or even more expensive. but they will last much longer for a lower running cost overall.

Any MFP around or non MFP which can cost me b/w $ 1500-2000 & per print cost shell be around $ 0.073 - 0.080

My main concern is to reduce the per print cost since i am ready to buy a bit costly printer once rather than spending much more on print cartridge forever,

Pls suggest such a printer in which i can get as low as possible per print cost,

many thanks once again

The Phasers are good devices and probably longer lasting - the components and build quality tend to be better.

It's a case of higher cost up front and 5 years+ running, or cheaper initially and 3+ years service.

Well it's simple math:
if you pay like 25$ for a 2500 page toner, then you are paying 0.01$ for each page, hence 1$ for
every 100 pages!

From what I understand you will need aprox. 6 toners each  year, that will be 150$ if you pay 25$ for a toner. if you pay 20$ for a toner then it will cost you 120$ a year.

Of course you must not forget the paper cost. How much does a 500 pack cost? 5$ !?
