I posted a similar deal a couple of month ago, when the price was higher at around £80

Now dropped by £10, this is a network-ready colour laser for £70.80 delivered, or under £65 after 9% cashback via Quidco.

anyone know how much a toner is for this thing?

thanks

Compatible roughly £89
Genuine £179

cheap cartridges but colour laser is a waste of money for most....i use a mono laser and an inkjet colour

Interesting, I was just looking at these as apparently they're one of the easiest printers to refill - see Top 5 "Refill Friendly" Printers . I could buy one of these for less than half the price of new cartridges for my Samsung.

In fact, I just did. Hot deal.

Jesus, I thought he was kidding. Genuine set of toners is £166. WTF? It's cheaper to buy TWO new printers than replace the toner cartridges. All I want is a cheap printer that WORKS. Btw, never buy an HP inkjet printer, they are designed to self-destruct.

The maths is not quite as simple as suggested: the starter toners supplied with the printer are rated at 1000 pages whereas the genuine Brother replacement toners are rated at 1500 or 2200 pages.

Still probably better off buying two printers rather than a set of original toners.

I was considering this but as it's a gdi printer I think I'll stick to my mono laserjet.

far too expensive for home use printer

Received mine today. Pretty decent print quality and reasonably priced toners (just bought a set of 4 for just over £50)

Mine arrived today, but I'm not impressed. It makes a constant buzzing noise, even in sleep mode. Sounds (and feels) like there's a fan whirring away in there. Looks like the only way to stop it is to turn it right off, and have to turn it on again every time I want to print to it. Not much use for a network printer.

Edit: bit hasty perhaps. It turned the fan (or whatever it was) off eventually, but must have been at least 10 minutes after it went into sleep mode. Suppose I can cope with that.

Anyone homeless? I've got this f'in enormous cardboard box the thing came in. Far too big to put in the loft in case it needs to be sent back at some point. I might rent out it for raves.

Where did you get replacement toners from? That's the only thing stopping me buying this

Lots on ebay for just under £60 - search for HL-3040CN toner. Similar prices on Amazon - or £104 for two sets. I've not managed to find any cheaper so I'd be interested in any better price as well.

I got these for just under £54 the other day but they seem to have put the price up a bit since

If you still have toner in your cartridge but the printer says its empty, try the following.
How to reset toner cartridge counter:-
1. Open the top cover
2. Press cancel and secure print at the same time. This should bring up the toner cartridge menu.
3. Scroll up and down throught the 4 cartridges and press OK. There seems to be two entries for each cartridge for some reason, so press OK for both. The printer will show Accepted for each reset when you press the OK button.

You should now be able to continue printing with 'full' cartridges

Enjoy.
