What is a scam you wish more people knew about?(r/AskReddit)
I’ve been using a $75 Brother laser printer for 5+ years and just recently changed the toner cartridge that came with it, which cost me $25. It currently says “Estimated Pages Remaining 9306 pages.”
edit: well this blew up. I have a Brother HL-2070N (now discontinued) and I will never own another inkjet again since they’re all such a waste. IMHO, the only thing that inkjets are good at are printing photos and images, which is where laser printers struggle. If I need those printed I just go to the store since paying ~$0.25 each a few times per year is much cheaper than keeping an inkjet printer happily fed with overpriced ink cartridges.
edit2: Some people are saying that the newer Brother laser printers come with a low capacity toner cartridge. But even then it will still be a lot cheaper than ink.
