I used to have some inkjet printer by epson, all shared the same problems, all thrown in the trash

I wanted to try some laser printers because it looks like that I can transfer prints to whatever material with some acetone/rubbing alcohol; and besides that looks like that they are less prone to problems and the refills do last longer (?)

Black and white or do you want coloured laser printer? I recommend to have a black and white laser printer by itself as it alot more reliable if you don't print in colour. I am using a black and white Brother HL-1210w which should cost about 50 pound in your currency. Refill of toner and drum change are easy cheap from 3rd party sellers. I am not sure if they available in your region or what the updated version is.

Edit : Just serach any monochrome laser printer most should come with third party toner or drums.

Thank god there’s two stationary shops just a walk down from my house. I'll never have to deal with the experience that is owning printers. I really don't envy you people who own printers.

Check your local eBay for used Lexmark E460dn in decent condition. These are built like tanks and sold at great prices after printing 50k pages in some random office.

Paid € 48,90 for mine

For color laser I'm using a Canon MF643Cdw bought for € 245 in 2020, accepts 3rd party cartridges, has wifi and runs 100% stable after firmware upgrade

Really happy to go to laser after years of inkjets, i went for (B&W) HP LaserJet M15a (speed and printouts great) cheap as chips but i dont think it likes non HP toners...

We use the P1102W here - great peice of kit we bought for £50, though we only need to print something once in a blue moon so its powered off 99% of the time, so an inkjet wasnt the best idea as ink does dry out and gums up the entire system.

good for you but some people have a business to run so their printer is how they eat and pay the rent/mortgage payments.
