We're starting a small biz and we just bought a laser printer.

We won't be doing a TON of printing but we won't be doing a little.

It was $300.

Was this a good buy?


Which is more expensive in the long run..(purchasing cartriges ans stuff).....Laser or Inkjet??

Laser is qucker, and it doesnt cost you on cartrages every few months, they last much longer. Also, Laser is better quality is im not mistaken.
#3
Laser printers are higher in quality and the color ones a great...although they can be fairly high in price to buy color toner for.
The black toner is easy to find on the net and refill yourself.
Toner does last a lot longer though so this is why most business use them.

what printer did you get for that price?
I normally get $200 lasers for just $50, (keep an eye on slickdeals.net)

Oh and I have a question.

On my hp laser printer, it has networking (which the guy that sold it said I can hook it up to all my computers in the house.

How do I do that??


-Thanks

You should get a printer server which will run to your splitter for your wired internet. Then just get connected to your network and you should be able to find the printer.

We use a Linksys PSUS4 which runs for around $55

Save money and get one on ebay

It was a HP 2600n I believe.

All the toner came all the way full. Thats the main reason we bought it.

They are like $80 a peice or sumthing but it prints like thousands.

I dont know how much a inkjet does.

edit: I just checked online and someone said it does 4000 prints off 1 black.

You got a fair deal, I'm sure printers always ship with color in them but the toner cartridges for this printer sell for around $70, each color.
