'[TECH]Good low cost Laser printer?'

I have been using the Minolta Pagepro 1350W Laser printer at home for a long time, it is fast, low cost and easy to maintain.

My son has given it a hard time ever since he found this thing can eat paper, and most of the plastic parts my son can access are either broken or missing because of that, but it still working  great.

I cannot find this particular model on the local market anymore, curious what kind of low cost Laser printer you guys are using these days, which can substitute My "Pagepro 1350W Laser printer" role in the near future.

I too have another HP P1006 laser printer at home (dedicated for my wife). Compare with the Minolta one, it's a loser, low cost but low performance, speed is slow compare with 1350W, and toner replacement is not cheap and not easy to find.

On my office, the Brother HL-4040CN color laser printer is great. But not suit for home use.

I'm happy with the entry level Samsung printers at home. (I have two but
don't have the model numbers handy.) They're cheap and fast.  Frequently
<$100 at Fry's.

We have the Samsung SCX-4200 laser printer (copier+scanner as well)
and another Samsung photo printer (using Dye Diffusion Thermal Transfer)
at home and they work quite well. I do not want to buy any inkjets any more
even though we still have a old Canon inkjet around.

Have an ML-1710 here that just won't die, too... not a lick of trouble
with it.

I have a Brother DCP-8040 (multifunction laser) and I'm quite pleased  
with it. The current generations of this printer include fax. Toner is  
widely availabl and not crazy expensive. Linux, Mac, and Windows are  
well supported.

I've been very happy with the Samsung CLP-315 color laser that I picked up
for $149. Sams Club is now carrying the color toner 3 pack for $76 for 1000
pages of coverage. I'm still waiting for the toner refill places to start
carrying the cartridges. Finally there is a wireless version that can be
set up on the network anywhere in your space.

Just 2 cents from a satisfied customer.

For a monochrome (black) laser printer don't overlook the Brother HL-2040
which can be found for less than $70 at most places. Ed

(-:  My son just turned 9 months old, and he's got a pair of little, but
very grabby hands! Thankfully, the printer is 5 feet off the ground. And no,
it won't drop on him when he pulls on the cables. :)

At home, we use a Brother 7820N MFC, it's a decent laser printer and is
great for making copies and scanning into PDFs. It's perfect for sending
faxes too, but we very rarely use this functionality.

At work, about half of employees use the HL-2040s, they were $60 or so at
Fry's (refurbished), very compact and quiet. We also bought several printers
with the network option (HL-2070?) to conveniently print FedEx, USPS, and
UPS labels from multiple locations.

At my workstation, I have an old Brother MFC 8820DN, I grabbed it when we
swapped it for an 8860 (our office workhorse), primarily because it has the
best sheet-fed scanner of any printer I've seen, for scanning text at 600
dpi.

Up until a few months ago I was using a Kyocera FS-1020DN - does duplexing
and handles ethernet/LPT.  I liked this printer - 1200dpi, about 14ppm
duplexed, and took Postscript directly.  It was also cheap to run, a big
reason for buying Kyocera (I'm also a bit of a cheapskate :)  Unfortunately it
didn't last as long as I'd hoped, even though it was fairly lightly used - only
about 3 years before it started jamming all the time.  I never had to change
the toner though; did about 4400 prints before I got rid of it.

I've got a Brother HL-5270DN now, also 1200dpi, duplex and network-ready (and
USB), eats Postscript, and does about 22ppm IIRC.  I was after the HL-5240DN
which is a little cheaper (no LCD screen, but the same otherwise) but ended up
with a 5270 as a 'sorry' from the vendor for messing me about.  No complaints
so far - even managed to pull off a toner transfer with the Brother toner (and
at 1200x1200dpi it's not too shoddy).  Pretty cheap to run too (one of my main
criteria).  It wasn't the cheapest laser printer out there, but it was pretty
close to the bottom for a 1200dpi duplexer and cheap running costs.  HTH.

Regards,

Pete Restall
