Maximum to spending about ?200.Please provide any buying links to a UK online store etc.Thanks,
Hi!I know the frustration when you buy a new printer and a couple of days later you run out of ink and find yourself at the store buying catridges or toner. However, what you need to realise is that the ink catridges or toner provided with the printer is a 'demonstration sample' (as worded by the store attendant) and offers you very little ink/toner. When you buy an ink catridge or toner separately, you get a normal capacity catridge or toner that you can print with.HP generally charges a higher amount for the printer but you can get the catridges or toner replacement for cheaper. Laser printers cost more initially but their toner is built to last. It makes Hewlett Packard one of the preferred choices in printers for corporate customers. Canon is cheap in both the cost of the printer and the cost of the catridges or toner. Epson sells extremely cheap printers but their catridges and toner can end up costing you quite a bit.If you are on a budget, you ought to get yourself an inkjet printer, which will not last for very long. If you want to have a printer that will last you a while and you intend to do some heavy printing with it, you will want a laser printer. You might have more problems with the laser printer complaining about memory from time to time, but you will have no problem printing text. The toner replacements available for laser printers do more than just provide new ink - it also replaces the drums that are used in printing and although this would give you the idea that laser printers are more expensive for printing larger quantities, the case is actually quite the opposite.
Hi there, Thanks for the reply! Yes I very well do know that the Toner provided is a sample and contains less than half which is why I purchased another one in the shop and that went down very quick.
