Thats a good deal for under £30. heat added

Price and availability of toner will be critical to a purchase decision, which seems to be from £45+ for cart capable of 1500 pages. Suspect the toner cart supplied with the printer will be a lower capacity starter version. Can anybody confirm? Thanks.

700 pages.

700 pages.

Yes, 700 page cart is quoted in the marketing blurb, but it doesn't indicate if that is a reduced-capacity starter cart or a standard capacity cart, or if 1500 capacity carts are standard or high capacity.

Do you have a problem?

You asked anyone to confirm the pages that the starter toner can print, it's 700, as stated in the PC Pro review that the OP mentioned.

It says in the blurb no cartridge included

Low capacity (700) is included. Refills here: http://www.sprint-ink.co.uk/pantum-toner-cartridges/pantum-p2000-series/p2000

I calculated that is you buy the 2300 page cartridge it works about 2.5p per page.

Would probably take a toner refill at least once....

I bought a refill from ebay for mine (£10) Samsung and refill it on dry day outside -( really gets in the carpet) works out very economical. I thought people bought a new printer on offer as it is cheaper than new cartridge!

This is poor value due to the high cost of replacement toner.
Buy a second hand HP4100 from Ebay - they go for around £50. For those its only around £13 for a replacement compatible toner that prints 10,000 pages. Toner for this Pantum to print 10,000 pages would cost you over £200 ! !

What simes said. Toner cost is crucial.

That youtube video link is dead for the review.

Rather pay a higher price with a better cost per print

Completely agree. You can normally pick up older main brand b&w laser printers v cheaply off ebay and not necessarily as big as a 4100. Generally refurbed toner cartridges should cost from £8 upwards.

Have some heat, decent for the price, in my opinion, got one just now in my local, to recharge this wouldn't cost me a lot as I've always done them myself, as it's brand new, quids in for me.

Agree with the majority here. Cost per page is the main issue. A lot of manufacturers sell at a loss, knowing they'll gain with consumable purchases. Even the PS3 was sold at a loss initially, because Sony knew they'd make money on the games.

Don't be suckered in to it.

Perfect little laser, fast, cheap to run, great for all round use.. oh and 30 quid!

Proper review of actual model :-)

So buy a new printer when the toner runs out, since they are so cheap.

Not a good deal due to cost of toner. Dell / Samsung lasers have cheap clone toner 2500 page cartridges for under £20. I got 2 for £50 on an ebuyer deal on here so although this seems cheap in the Long term it's not.

Except they have caught on to that and now put in "starter" cartridges with anywhere between 20 and 50% of the standard capacity. Same goes for most inkjet printers.

Got one in Durham yesterday, easy setup and high quality fast prints. "does exactly what it says on the tin"

Anyone got a link to a guide to refill these....never had a laser printer before!
