Help on BEST LASER Printer Please?...


Admin

Recommended Posts

... Hi All,

I am after a new Laser Printer. Previously bought a Xerox Phaser 6110 Laser Printer, and I am not at all impressed with it. Cyan ink runs out well before the "Manufacturer states it would" as well as other problems.

Anyway, I need one that prints great quality colour, speed would be an advantage. As would a lot of other things.

I am looking at spending

i have a samsung CLX 2160 multi function printer, before that i had a CLP-300. very good printers, you can buy toner and chips on ebay and re-fill yourself. the printer only remembers the last few chips, so you dont always need to buy one, just cycle them. apart from emptying waste toner and topping up, its virtually maintenance free

you can probably get a CLP-300 for less than

Looks like the newer version of the 300. looking on ebay, it uses a different toner system to the 300, so not sure about refilling them, but it should be possible

the 300 & 2160 come with a part full toner, still expect over 1000 pages from the black before it says it needs filled. it also has a system in place that detects when it really is empty, so if it says its empty, you can just change the chip and not fill unless its empty

little tip for those refilling it, to make the hole in the plastic, get a bit of 22mm copper pipe and heat with a bowtorch. press plastic cartridge against this to make your hole. 22mm give you plenty room to get the toner in, although some refil kits come with a proper nozzle on the bottle so you can get away with 15mm

I bought the proper tool for that (for my Xerox).

Turns out is a "Solder Iron" with a circular piece of metal screwed on the end - rather wonkily, I may add.

Getting annoyed now - Printers showing as a low price on the net - click on the link and it is nowhere near that price. X(

No Mate - The one in Swansea has Recently closed Down.

And besides - I haven't been there for so long, they have probably cancelled my card. :(

Use a inkjet for colour.

I have a Dell 1320c that I brought from ebuyer was about £130.00. I also have an Epson acculaser c900. The Dell is a great printer and toners are cheap if you buy non original ones. I don't do much scanning so have a cheap inkjet printer that can also scan if needed. Ebuyer seem to do some good bargains on printers from time to time.
