A very cheap price for a workhorse mono laser, after picking one up this afternoon the Sales Assistant said they had only reduced them yesterday.

How cheap are the toners? And refill possible?

How cheap are the toners? And refill possible?



Around £13 for toner compatible cartridges. Can also be refilled but needs a reset gear if your using the original starter cartridge.
Approximately how many pages do you get from each cartridge?
I got kids printing loads of pages so need to invest in the cheapest option, would this be it?
were is the toner at that price plz
Try ijtdirect.co.uk this is where I get mine from for my Brother Laser (I get my sister Mary something else).

Edit: I have searched online and have not found 'cheap' toner for this model. The cheapest option appears to be buying a bottle of refill toner, but I have found that to be messy so no longer do it. I'd advise people to search for cheap toner before buying this printer.

You won't get any cheaper than this, HP lasers are around the same, stay away from Samsung they are expensive to run

It's a mono laser (black only). I have this printer, the consumables are about as cheap as you can get for any laser. The printer is good quality, it's quite large due to having an enclosed paper tray ( nearly twice as deep as my HP1102).
last question can u connect this to computer to print off work

Yes
just been posted @ £35.99 from Viking, even better.
not buying 1 now doesnt do photocopying
anyone know if its possible to airprint from this?
a good printer, my first laser was the predecessor the HL-2035.
However, once I got a bigger beefier colour laser, I didn't look back. The small brothers dont get much (1500?) pages per toner at about 40 quid?, and the drum only lasts...(6,000?) pages then needs to be replaced at around...wait for it...£70. So it's bin time. Factor THAT into your printing cost (£40 + 3*£13) = 6,000 pages, price per page = 1.3p, not so bad, Official toner would be 3p-ish.

Drum will break a LOT quicker if you use shoddy IJT carts. Not that I have anything against IJT, oh wait, I do. They're charlatans. But, 3rd party toner carts without drums are always risky to be honest. And that's not propaganda, my extensive experience with several lasers over the time I've been running my business, I print a lot.

Go for a bigger beefier printer like a dell or epson or hp or something IF you have the room. I get 5k printouts per toner for £70 official or £40 3rd party on black, and those carts INCLUDE drum so no surprises at 60k or whatever and damage is fairly limited if you get a really nasty toner. And thats on a not so thrifty colour dell 3110cn which isnt the cheapest, but I like it. It has a massive paper tray and optional duplex and MPF tray and so on.

Full toner capacity for HL- 2130 is 2600 pages @ 5% coverage. Drum life is up to 12,000 pages (compatible drums cost around £25, at this price though you may as well replace the printer). Cost per page using compatible cartridges & including the price of the printer will be £0.0089 (less than a penny, about as cheap as you will get on any printer).

bought the 2130 myself from staples last month.
the 1200dpi mode is as clear as I have seen on any printer.
I print couple of pages per week so likely I'll step on the printer and brake it before toner runs out.
smaller than the inkjet it replaced and has a proper paper tray which is a godsend!
Still using a dinosaur of an HP Laserjet 1200 for the last 5 years. Rock solid build & lasts forever,
Don't think this would be the same build quality

Amin to that! Using a 1200 too... but now I think I have to replace toner and drum... did you replaced your drum? Any cheap source for that? Thanks!
Out of stock
IJT's logo is just SOOO appropriate, since they're a bunch of...

I stand corrected on capacity, they must have improved it since the one I had.
I still have the HL-1230 and it does 6600 pages on a toner cartridge.
Costs me about £11 to get a replacement and it's not re-manufactured.

I use it for pcbs and the original carts. can't be used for that.
And I stand corrected about IJT, they are actually very very good. I had them confused with an ebay trader who since ceased trading. So I retract my earlier comment. Replacing toners with cheaper 3rd party ones is still false economy, IMHO.
Same price at Ryman, but says "TN2010 Cartridge required".
ryman.co.uk/390…uct
i've reserved mine at local, hopefully they still have it and will collect tongiht, good deal for a cheap mono laser,

ideal to print permission forms for scouting.

Picked one up from Harrow. Haven't installed it yet.
just got mine from staples for 34.99. got them to do a price match with rymans. staples do price match + 10%! normal staples price £89.99
