note the description box on the righthand side of the page. It says:

"PLEASE NOTE: No further discount can be applied to this product"

Does this mean the 15% introductory discount will not apply?
Same for potential quidco?

Yes georgieboy123, how about a quick review as you have one of these. Nothing like a hands on review by a forum member as to whats good and bad about a product.

Well, I am perfectly happy with mine. It is not a small printer but does look nice with its sloped front. I have NEVER had a paper jam with it and each and every page comes out exactly as it should - the first page in a reasonable time too.

One of my toners is running low and the price to replace them is almost £50 each :x . I think:? that the replacement ones contain more toner than the starter ones included with the printer, but I made the choice to order a whole new printer instead of paying out the £50 as each one runs out as I still think that's better value. EuroOffice delivered next day with no fuss as advertised too.

I previously had an Epson and that was a little bigger but the first page was slow which was a problem, that would jam from time to time too. My brother bought a Zerox at the same time that I bought this and he's had the engineer out several times to attempt to repair it with limited sucess (pages sticking etc..)

In summary, I now have two of these (one has to go) and apart from the fact that you can get smaller footprint ones now, I would happily buy a third.

Don't forget the Quidco which has now been validated for me. :thumbsup:

Its a pretty sad state we have got ourselves into where its now cheaper to buy a new printer than to replace the toner. It doesnt just apply to this deal either, another I was looking at the other day had the same price constraints.

if you need the truth about the cost of ownership - heres my recommendation!

I know what you are saying, but these are just taster cartridges offering around 1000 pages.

I have one of these and the quality is fantastic compared to my old Lexmark colour inkjet and my old samsung mono laser. I have only used HP colour lasers so I have no other colour laser to benchmark it against.

Well I always rated HP inkjet printers having had a few, but once the kids started wanting to print everything in sight in colour it started getting really expensive on HP inks so I moved over to Epson so I could buy £3 refills.
Not such a cost effective move really as I found that every time the Epson started it did an ink check and wiped a bit onto the foam underneth to clear the nozzles I guess but with such small carts it isnt long before it needs a replacement, after a year my first Epson didnt print well even with new carts (4) so I bought another and a year later same bad printing. I cant be bothered to strip it right down to clear all the ink that I suspect is all around the nozzles. I just got my trusty old (read very old) HP deskjet 500 out from under the bench where its been for 2yrs or more and plugged it in to get a perfect test page after all that time! I have one spare cart plus whatever is still in it to use then its laser for me. If I add up all the £3 Epson carts I have replaced for the limited amount of printing done I would have been better off with a laser, even if I threw it away when the toner ran out.
Just cant make up my mind atm if to go HP1020 mono for £44 or 1600 colour for £108

We've got it's big brother, the HP CLJ3600 in work and it's not taster cartridges that come with the printer but the full thing.

We're on our 4th printer now as it is indeed cheaper to buy a new printer than to buy replacement cartridges.

The world has gone nuts!!

I don't know if thats true.^

The new printer at its cheapest is £103 with cartridges that last 1000 prints.

The full cartridges are rated at 2,000 pages (colours) and 2,500 (black) and a full set would cost around £170 including VAT and delivery.

So £85 would get you 1000 prints out of the replacement cartridges, saving £17 pounds by using replacement cartridges...
...But for an extra £17 you get the printer as well!!!

Its like the air freshener in my car, its about £4.15 for the whole lot and a replacement scent is £4.

hmm, for comparison

My original Brother inkjet cartridges (LC900), £6/each, 400 pages

Or 2000 pages from these at £43/each.

What a rip-off - laser printing should be cheaper.

Other cheap Lasers are no better. £50 for a Samsung black toner that will do 3,000 pages. Or 6 Brother black cartridges @£6.30 each = £37.80. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Brother-Lc900Bk-Black-Cartridge-Electronics/dp/B00068ORPU

Basically these cheap lasers are completely useless - if you need the speed of a laser, then you must be printing a lot, so you need one that doesn't cost a fortune in consumables.

(Admittedly some inkjet manufacturers rip you off on consumables as well, but not so much).
