How many pages can HP laserjet p4515x before it is totally unusable?

We currently have one with 260K pages on it and it needs fuser replaced. Would it be better to get a new printer all together or replace the fuser?

on page 2 they say it's duty cycle is 275000 pages
but you maybe able to get more if you install new roller, or maintenance kit

@nobus It's the monthly duty cycle that's 275,000 pages. Printers typically have a life of about 6 times the duty cycle, or in this case 1,650,000 pages

Here is the support link for your printer: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=3558888

It was actually due for a maintenance kit 60,000 pages ago; but, if it is not otherwise giving you problems or has not been beaten up (busted plastic, doors don't close quite right anymore, etc.), installing a maintenance kit and giving it a good cleaning will almost certainly give you another 200,000+ pages: http://www.nextwarehouse.com/item/?643339_g10e

Business class HP Laserjets are the energizer bunnies of the printer world.
