What is your experience with color laser printers at home? Any recommendations or Avoid These?
So my wife saw some output from the new color printing system at work, and started wondering whether we could get something similar for home. Wifi would be nice, but not necessary - I use the TV computer as a print server for the rest of the house.
At the moment we have a Dell monochrome laser MFP, which was free, came with a spare printer for parts, and five toner cartridges. I'm just fine paying for nothing but paper! However...
Looking at various printers, trying to get a sense for reliability, maintenance costs, etc. I know that I'm going to spend more on toner. It's a question of how much, and whether I will also need to replace other random bits at preset intervals whether they are working correctly or not.
For example, in a review for a Samsung printer, someone noted that they have to replace an overflow container (internal trash bin) on a regular basis. Can't just take the old one, empty it, and put it back. Got to get a new one. Deal-breaker for me right there!
