My Epson printer is just about at the end of it's useful life and I have been wondering about it's replacement. Due to the high cost of ink cartridges I have been considering one of these:-


Have any of you used these?

Are they any good?

I recently bought a refurbished B & W laserjet printer from a major online computer hardware company (based in the USA) [one thatI've done business with before on several occasions over the years].

I couldn't be happier with the product in every conceivable respect. I have no idea how this item wound up in their inventory (who the previous user was), but it's in mint condition.

Toner cartridges for B & W laserjets are not cheap, but for my uses, they have it all over inkjet cartridge based printers in that the print does not fade, and it's almost impossible to erase some part of a printout without it being readily noticeable that that has been done [I use mine to,among other things, print out checks].

And most importantly, the toner cartridges don't have the same clogging up issue that cartridges have when they haven't been used for a long time.

IF you need color printouts, that's another matter entirely. While color laserjet printouts of images are fantastic re how well they turn out on a high quality setting, + the cost of the special photo paper if you want a first rate printout, it gets to be quite expensive; the ones sold at retail have very little capacity in the out of the box mode, and the full blown replacement cartridges (usually at least 3 of them, sometimes more), are quite expensive.

I don't have a printer at all these days. I can show tickets on my smartphone, store documents on the internet/cloud and do anything vital at work.

My dad who has just discovered social media is still at the stage of printing off e-mails. ;)
