Bed copier/scanner/printer for home use that doesn’t eat ink
« on: February 14, 2019, 01:42:32 PM »
Would spend up to $200 or so as long as it is efficient with the ink and is decent quality. Any suggestions ?

I like the brother MFC series, you can compare them and compare the biggest toner each one supports, and decide which one works best for your needs.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I dislike the Brother printers, as they stop printing when you can still get quite a few pages out of your toner.

I like the OKI MB472. Probably lowest cost per page (only comparing cost using original toner, not refilled).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

You just need to change the settings to allow it to continue to print

The Brother line is very affordable and very good. Not sure about color printing though.

I tried both, can say both are OK, but I prefer the OKI, for the reasons you mentioned.

ink efficiency in inkjet printing is an oxymoron . The scam is well explained in this video



After a few frustrating experiences and alot of research i decided to purchase an ink tank printer, so that i could print freely. This is the one i have and i am mostly happy with .

i bought an HP and subscribe to their instant ink program.
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

Ink and toner are two totally different animals. I've tried inkjet once, and when it refused to print black when a certain color ran out, the experiment was over.

I wasted so much money on inkjet for my business , at the time used to print hundreds of invoices daily and when a color ran out -----, big waste .
