Just FYI, this printer uses low-yield cartridges. So instead of 2 - 4000 pages you only get 1500.

Secondly, it only comes with a half-full cartridge, good for 700 pages

The toner costs £80 to replace, the cheapest I can find it for is £50. So 3.3p per page.

Yeah ~£50 for a toner. But if the whole idea is for occasional mono printing only, it's much better value than an inkjets which invariably clog under light use.
It does seem weird that there isn't much choice in replacement cartridges, maybe its new or very old and on its way out. I've just bought the Samsung ML-2525 and theres loads of compatables for this one:…525

Bought mine from here, but is now £52 :…tml, and delivery is £9.76 so it would be £62. or buy it from the same people on Amazon for even more:…8-3
