Where do you get the toners from?

eBay
Ive got one of these - the text and graphics print quality is fine, it struggles horribly with photos though.

The other thing is that it's hardly compact, it's massive and you can't keep it on a shelf or under anything as the whole top hinges open to change the toners unlike my previous dell where they slid in the side.
These are huge and heavy and toners cost a lot
Cheaper here by a few pence: cartridgepeople.com/Pri…tml Full set of compatible toners are from £26.99 on eBay.
My old laser Dell printer has started playing up (not recognizing magenta cartridges) :-(

This was one of the printers I had my eye on to replace it but wondering if there are any others I should be considering.


Looking for:

- laser
- colour
- reasonably priced toner - happy to use compatibles.
- networkable (not too bothered about wi-fi as will be using network cable).
.
Cheers!

You will find the print resolution low on all almost all printers at this price range, you only start seeing better resolutions at a much higher price point.

Inkjets do far better for printing photos.

But for reliability, documents, speed and ongoing costs you can't be a Brother Laser
I've had the 3140cdw for 5 years. It has moaned about needing the drum replaced for 2 of them. Decent for office stuff, useless for photos.
Parents-in-law have had this for a few years now and has been effortless to maintain. Always a bonus when I'm nominated as the IT support for my whole family
I have a Dell laser, not this one, but I am a big fan of colour laser with affordable toners for home. Far less hassle than inkjet for day to day printing. Far cheaper on consumable. As long as photo quality is good enough to include images in documents or presentations, I think this is fine. For high quality photos, even with a good inkjet you need to use photo paper (not cheap) in addition to the ink. If I want what photo printed, i find it no hassle to take a sd card to my local Boots or even simpler mail order prints from the internet. It's probably cheaper than printing at home too once you count paper and ink cost. I think the basic photo inkjet then only become useful if you regularly need to print 1 or 2 photos rather than several photos rarely.

Thats not the same, it's the 3140 not the 3150.

I think the difference is no duplex on the 3140...
Just noticed that bigger brother (excuse the pun) of this printer which has a scanner has dropped to £153.60 on Amazon. (Brother DCP-9015CDW).

amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

£24 ish extra for inclusion of the scanner (and 192mb vs 64mb memory) seems to be worth it.

Sizewise its a bit of a beast - it has the same footprint as the 3150 but is taller.

How does this compare to that £99 wireless Samsung colour laser in both quality and long term costs?

This is far from being compact..it’s amazing how technology in the printers space hasn’t changed in almost a decade..
i've had this model for a couple of years. Needs drum replacing. may just buy another
Does it actually print double sided?
Brother - great printers last for years and years - well made!

Before you buy a scanner ask yourself the question "how many times will i actually use it" and do you have a phone with a decent megapixel camera - if so no point in using a scanner - even ocr will work on an A4 smartphone pic!

CamScanner, DocSanner and Google Drive have versions for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

According to Brother's own information, it does: brother.co.uk/pri…cdw. I believe the 'D' in the models name stands for Duplex (C for Colour and W for Wireless). More convenient.

If you are looking for a cheap laser for home, most printer drivers will allow manual doubled sided even if they don't have an automatic duplex built-in. You just tell the printer to print double-sided, the printer prints all the even pages, pauses, you pick the paper and reinsert it in the paper feed, press ok and the printer prints the odd pages. For limited home usage, it works fine allowing you to save paper with minimal manual effort. For business use, that would become inconvenient.

Genuinely good info' to know as I was thinking of getting a colour laser printer for photos. My cheap Samsung B&W laser printer actually printed pictures rather well, I assumed (obviously wrongly) a colour laser printer would do the same.

Yes, automatic duplex printing. It does slow it down quite considerably though.
