Yes! I can’t stress this enough. After dealing with shitty cheap printers (with absurdly priced ink cartridges that would print only three pages including one that was a ‘test’ comprising of an advertisement for itself), I finally realized that an $99 laser printer is a deal (I like one with auto duplexing – which means it prints both sides of a page. Automatically). Especially when you can buy a high capacity toner cartridge.
Listen people, I’m writing a book. I print out hundreds of pages in drafts and ideas and crap in addition to normal printer stuff. I bought my laser printer (B/W) over a year ago. I replaced the toner once (the included one with a high capacity one).
It just fucking works. Sometimes, I put a plate on top of it and probably spill some crumbs up in there.
New printer don’t care. New printer don’t give a fuck. New printer just prints whenever I ask it to.
Edit: I’m semi-convinced that I read somewhere it’s NOT ok to promote products or brands on reddit. So for those who really want to know, please PM me and I will link you. Also, if someone can refute my strong conviction that this is against some rule I at some point read, please do. For everyone else who has responded, I will PM you. 🙂
Second edit: updating price – I misremembered what I initially paid. I thought I paid $80, it was actually $99.
Third edit: One person reassured me there is no rule against this, so hopefully they are correct. I got the brother HL-2270DW. It stacks up well against other products / brands, it’s pretty easy to set up and network (wireless is nice!) and the auto duplexing is a HUGE bonus. Also, it’s still reasonably priced on amazon. I don’t give a fuck that it isn’t color. Don’t need it to be.
The high yield toner cartridge is also a great buy.
Edit four: Found the HP Inkology videos. on Amazon. This is what ultimately enraged me enough to buy a laser printer in the first place. It’s also hilarious. Enjoy!
