OK deal but I got the colour version (CLP-315) for £99 a while back and that's probably of more use to most people.

Can you hook these up to a wireless network/>

Original toners for that are just over £100 for a set of four via Amazon (more like £160 in shops!). Mono ones probably around £30-£40 each but haven't checked. Possibly cheaper for compatibles but you need to be wary of quality. Laser generally much cheaper per page than inkjet (and more durable) unless you get ultra cheap compatibles for inkjet.

For business use it has to be laser I think.

There's a wireless version of the colour one at slightly higher cost - possibly the mono too?

I think £99 for a colour version is great - this will probably only suit those that need only B&W

I'm not sure - it does not have any wireless/lan connections so presume you would have to share it through one computer

I've got the ML-1640 and I'm looking at around £47 for a Samsung b&w toner cartridge for it.
May as well just pay a few £ extra and buy a new printer. That's what put me off the colour ones - toner costs up to twice as much as the printer itself.
Saw one of these in Staples yesterday and pretty small. About 2/3 the size of the 1640.

Black toners are the same or at least they are on the previous ML series.

Chips for the carts can be had for a few £ and then undo one screw and refill for nuppence.

I want a chip reprogrammer but can't find one anywhere

For those arguing it's cheaper to buy a new printer these are starter carts which do around 700 pages (@5% coverage) full ones do about 3000 colour and 5000 mono so it's not cheaper to buy a new printer, just get refill kits though costs much less then. The 1640 just needs a replacement firmware then you can refill as much as you like the CLP-315 needs either a modchip or new chips for each cart

You will find that you get more pages out of a retail toner than the ones that come with the samsung lasers though.. they use smaller economy toners in the in box supplied one so they run out faster.

Anyone know how much toners costs for this?

Can the starter carts be refilled multiple times or would you recommend buying a full cart and then refilling that? I read that the starter carts are made from cheaper materials and the drum doesn't last very long compared to the full carts.

Thanks

I've got a Dell Laser 1100 aka Samsung ML-1600. Its an older model but it looks quite similar to this, I buy toner refill bottles at £9 a pop which refills the toner it comes with twice.

Apart from being slightly messy, its very easy to refill and a bargain.

I have the ML-1510 and it's been great. Refill cartridges from CartridgeWorld about £20.

The only difference between the starter kits and retail toner is the starters don't have any chips on them and rely on the counter in the printer to restrict printing, you can refill the starter carts you just need some self adhesive refill chips I paid £5 each for some the other day which is why I want a programmer as you can just reset them. Internal capacity is the same between all the carts it just comes down to the page counter in the printer and the chip on the toner cart.

As for the drum/opc/imaging unit you don't change that just the toners

Toners supplied with printers are not full - just enough to get you started without undermining their replacement toner business.

You can refill toner? I didn't know that. Presumably it comes with a face-mask and life insurance :)

Not really - most printing people do will be in black and white, and laser isn't great for colour photos. Using a colour laser for any black and white tasks is very expensive and wasteful.

It's significantly more economical (although not space saving) to have a mono laser for the majority of printing, and a dedicated colour printer (laser or inkjet) for colour only tasks. Most people have an inkjet for their colour printer, so they can do decent photos. If people added up how much they've spent on ink, they'd realise that the cost of the printer itself can be nearly meaningless and would stop buying cheap printers.

Last time I did a comparison, the cheap Samsung ML lasers were more expensive to run in the long term when you take into account their cartridges, than those with a slightly higher initial cost. You can't take the quoted pages as gospel, but they are your only real guide.

I have a Samsung 2525 Mono which I got via here some time ago. This may seem strange but I bought a laser printer which is seen as a high use machine because I did not print that often! In the past with my inkjets, I often found the heads blocked when I wanted to use it and it used loads of ink clearing them. A laser can be idle for weeks then give a quality print when first switched on with no missing parts and far superior text printing. I find I do now print more readily and frequently due to the low costs involved and the certainty of a good clear image.

Spotted the CLP-315 on clearance in my local Currys (Solihull) for £57 today. Don't know if this is national but a great price if you can find one. Obsolete model now I believe.

Don't be facetious you get a screw on funnel that attaches to the bottle this then goes into the toner cart there's no need for toner particles to end up airborne if you do it sensibly and of course you realise that most dust masks wouldn't stop toner particles as well as most non HEPA hoovers (one of our engineers hoovered out a large laser printer once the office had to be evacuated afterwards as the toner went straight thru the filters and ended up airborne - nasty!! It'a no more dangerous than crossing the street really.

As for messy it's only a powder if you wash it off with cold water it just washes away no problem

Again as for using a colour laser to print mono it's NO MORE expensive than using a mono laser it's still just black toner after all, in fact many many manufacturers mono toner carts are the same ones used in their colour lasers.

wish people could keep the facts straight about laser printers and toner
