Great price for a colour laser from a decent brand.

Anyone know what the running costs are of something like this versus an Ink Jet? ie The price of the Toner Cartridges, how long they last compared to Ink Jet Cartridges dealing with the same medium, same quality etc.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

EDIT - Found the tool box software now.
Thanks for the link.


HELP HELP HELP!!!

Hello

I managed to bag a new one of these from display (They had unpacked two in error).
Managed to get a new one at 40% off, so it was about £58..

Brill, I know..
It did not have any software, but I managed to download the drivers from the HP site.
I have a problem... All the configuration is done with some HP Toolbox software, it is only avaliable on the CD.
The HP site has a link to order a CD, but it is not working...

I need the toolbox to configure the printer to override the cart low/out message when it appears.. (These printers can be refilled without the need or chipping which is brill).

I really would like anyone who purchased one of these, or is going to (Still avaliable) to burn me a copy of the CD..

I will obviously pay for the time and disk and postage.. But in desperate need...

Pretty please..

Fingers crossed.

Great deal by the way, especially as the cart chips can be bypassed in the HP software.

showing as £117.44 for me

A full set of toners usually works out costing more than the printer itself. We have a colour Laserjet 2600n in work at it cost £193 ex vat for a set, i believe the printer only cost £160 new and that came with 100% filled toners.

Cant comment on this printer, but I use a black ink laser printer (HP) and although the toner cartridges cost more, they print many more pages than an inkjet cartridge, and I am still on my first toner. The quality is also better in my opinion as I often find with inkjets you can get lines on your paper if you know what I mean

I was in PCWORLD on tuesday in store advertised as £97.46 or something similar, I will scan the receipt with the product code.

Product code 886914

Managed to find the toolbox software, can fully configure everything about it now, including the toner out override...

Bargain printer, good quality and toner out override, just what we need.. (Have bottles of the stuff from a old job I had..)

Here is a link to the override instructions from HP.

Apparently the older model 1215 had a firmware issue, so they instructed people to override.

Do you have a source for the cheap toner then?

No, I have a few bottles which will last me..

I have googled and ebayed, ignore the idiots who say it comes with the chips and charge £10 a chip or more.. Buy from the guys who know what they are talking about.

Also re refilling, it is just a simple (Burn a hole) job. But for a more professional refurb, take a look at this link that remanufactures use.. Great info for these carts and servicing them.

This link also gives some good info and service info about the printer,

Thought of this .. So instead bought an Brother HL 4040CN network ready (but not wifi , via ethernet port) printer . That costs £195 at staples.. (website says 299 though)
The toners for colour are full .. so upto 1800 pages of print, The black toner is only partial filled, but you get a new one full at microdirect for £35. Overall the running cost of this turns out cheaper than HP over a 2yr period.

£117.44 for me too... Bloody shame

Seriously considered one last Sunday, then thought of re-filling costs. HP say should last around 1500 ish pages before refill neded. Found average cost of re-filling all 4 inks around £240 so I thought NO! Now if it is possible to refill oneself, as I have been doing my mono Samsung for years, I may well think again.
ps the ink that comes supplied are they full cartridges or the usual half full jobbies?
