As Egypt goes offline US gets internet 'kill switch' bill ready
I have an older all-in-one (5300 series) that I bought from Woot® : One Day, One Deal for $40 refurbed, and have nothing but good things to say about it... then again, 98% of the time I am printing text with the rapidprint settingWe looked into that printer about this time last year and found a LOT of negative feedback on the unit itself. Lots of breakdowns and mediocre print quality.
Haven't looked at them since then. Maybe improvements have been made. :dunno:
When I was doing office work, we used the big HP Laserjets for all our printing (but only in black ink). The lifespan of the $140 cartridge was approximately 5,000 sheets. We found that if we set the print quality to "Draft" quality, we could extend the cartridge life to 15,000 sheets! Not only did we save money, but the work printed faster and often looked better than the "High Quality" output setting work. :2thumb:I wouldn't suggest anything other then a LaserJet or similar. InkJet type printers use way too much ink.
I got a Konica Minolta office printer. This model is designed for a large office printing hundreds or thousands of pages a day. Toner cartridges are expensive but go a looonnnnnggggg way. When I got it, there was about 20% toner left and I've printed about 4,000 pages and it still has plenty of toner left.
When buying paper, consider getting it with 3-hole punch. That allows you to put it in binders.
