    Few questions:

    What printer do you have and what did it cost?

    How much to each of the toner cartridges cost and how many do you have to replace?

    Approximately how many printed pages do you get out of a set of toner cartridges?

    Dell 5100CN color laser -- about $500 on sale

    $215 for a set of 1 black and one of each color cartrage. about 4-5000 pages depending on how much of each color is in the printouts. example you might use up a crayn cartrage every 4000 pages while my black has lasted over 8000

    Sweet, I am going to look into getting one. I'd save a ton of $ on ink cartridges...

    actually only 99 anymore. but they are ink and not lazer.... and there can be problems with the all in one machines. IE if you have printing problems, then you lose your copier, and fax machine.... if you have scanner problems, then you loose copier and fax machine...

    that being said. I pulled an HP photosmart 2510 out of the trash can that one of the student was throwing away, and aside from a few paper jams (every 20 pages or so) it never missed a beat. But I picked up a throwaway laserjet 4 for the bulk of my office printing.

    It amazing what people throw away here....I could probably run a side business on ebay and pull down a grand a month...
