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.
Of course. I don't print that much but I often need color. A color laser is cost prohibitive forme.
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

That changes things.

There are actually advantages to ink over toner. But in an office environment inkjet just doesn’t cut it.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I'd recommend a brother MFC monochrome laser (generic tonora work just fine) and a also buy a cheap $30 inkjet for the few times u need to print in color.
You then throw it out when it completely runs out, (google the model to find out how to "trick" the machine.. each one is diff) you buy a new one (cheaper than new legit tonor).
I wouldn't go for the generic ink on the cheap inkjets... I've tried it so many times, not worth the hassle.. just buy a new machine

As i said i did alot of research . Though no printer is perfect, IME the cons are overstated in the Ink tank (though granted i have only owned it for half a year) . I use my printer a few times a week and its works flawlessly . Again not suggesting its a perfect solution, however after much frustration with Inkjets, this experience has been refreshing (and luxurious!). Now i don't think twice about printing anything including color and long documents i want to read (or even ebooks).

Are there any other good printers that don't require chips for the toner?

what's the big deal if it has a chip just remove the old chip and put it on the new cartridge that comes without the chip or buy the toner cartridges that come with a chip, I just bought three cartridges for $28 or something like that.

the chip just tells the machine how much ink is left, either way when you use the fake cartridges you're going to reset the toner life and it won't be accurate so you use your toner cartridges until you have no more ink printing on your papers, and make sure you have backups for scenarios when you run out of ink unexpectedly.

Without the original chip the latest brother printers don't work...
It can be a hassle to deal with moving over the chip to the generic toner and after a while you may need a new chip and have to pay full price for an original toner...

What's wrong with the off-brand ones that come with a chip they seem to do a fine job
or if you're a bit handy and you don't care to make a little mess you can buy the powder rather the ink and refill the toner yourself after watching a YouTube video or two.

information about needing the original chip with the latest brother printers is false, I just bought a brand new one from Costco this past month and it requires a chip, so I did a little research on what the chip is and how it works, as I wanted to know if I can buy a toner cartridge that has no chip or do I need to buy a one with the chip. I ended up buying ones that come with a chip only because whoever's at home to replace the toner I don't want to make it hassle for them to change and take out and remove the old chip.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DRTLLNC/

these are the toner cartridges I purchased you can see, this is for the newer brother machines.
 I paid $23.95 for a pack of two, bought a few packs.
and if you look in the comments they come with a trip and yes I have the myself they come with a chip, they work great.

i just bought a new brother printer last week and bought 2 seperate generic toners. they both didnt work... can be it depends when the printer was made, the later printers are updated not to work with the generic chips...
