Iirc a replacement toner cartridge is about £40 so as much as the whole printer. Hope I'm wrong as I own one but use a cheaper-to-run printer day to day.

What is the cheaper to run printer you use please? Is it laser? I'm looking into getting a laser printer since apparently toner doesn't dry up like ink does and I wouldn't use it that often.

Brother HL-8250CDN. No electronics whatsoever in the toner cartridges so refilling is as simple as removing a plug, filling, re-plugging and then pushing a pen in the right spot to reset the wheel that acts as a fill meter.

You're right about laser being best for occasional use, I've done something like 250 pages in 12 months and it's been no hassle, maybe 30 seconds from clicking print to it being done even after a month of being idle.

edit: not sure what the prices are like now but I got mine for £70 after cashback. At that price it's a no-brainer to go for it over something like this, I mean you gain duplex, colour, plus it actually has a good webUI and speaks standard protocols so works with every OS out of the box with no driver installation. Oh, except android, but it supports cloud print so they work too, just takes a couple of minutes to get the first page printing.

Thanks for taking the time to get back to me I can't see it any cheaper than £125 at Argos right now but I'll keep an eye out. I literally learned what toner is (and therefore what laser printers actually do) a few hours ago, I feel like a right idiot but at the same time it's a welcome revelation! I always assumed it was synonymous with ink. Can any toner cartridge be refilled as easily or is it just this model/Brother printers?

I can't say. Physically they're all just containers of powder and should be super easy to refill, but that doesn't benefit the printer manufacturers who want you over a barrel paying £50 to replace the entire cartridge each time, when as raw materials it's £5 worth of toner and £2 worth of plastic.

It's always the way isn't it! I used to buy cheap(ish) refills for my inkjet but if it's that cheap and easy to refill toner yourself I may as well go that route. Although, I read the powder itself can cause health problems if you breathe it in, I'm guessing you need a mask?
