For this amount you can buy a little used good multifunction device. When printing several pages a month, the price of toners is not such an indicator, because toners last from 500-5000 pages. In this case, 1 toner for several years.
I suggest looking for something from the list below: - samsung scx3405w / m2070W - brother dcp1610WE / dcp1612WE - ricoh sp112SU
I would also recommend HP, but it will be hard to find something in good condition in these coins.
Thanks. I thought that in this cash register something new would need to be bought, in a sense there should be a gift if it comes to effect, it was supposed to be a printer but I would buy a laser and next to it there would be an old inking machine because they have a scanner on it? so I was thinking about a multi-functional laser. I only have to choose what is in a popular store not for idiots and there are various options but I know that it would be best to buy Hp but at my price lack, only the Samsung sp-M 2070 W for around 500 PLN - new. There are Epsons, Canon, but HP from what I read, but the best, although, unfortunately, this price is not
I had a lot of 3in1 devices, HP rained without warning and could not be repaired by service, or repair would cost as much as new in the store or even more. As for Samsung, they have the same ills, the same thing goes wrong in each, but the repair is to be done on your own, changing the paper feed wheel, shortening the spring, replacing the drum or heater, you do it yourself. I speak after warranty of course. Canon and Epson are good companies, they have worked much longer since HP. The service, if anything, works well. About HP, forget about "services". They blame customers, convince them that it's the user's fault, etc., deadlines for repairs dragged on forever, zero contact with someone responsible. But I only had Canon and Epson colors, I don't know the subject of monochrome. It is worth reading reviews on forums around the world, not those stupid customer reviews on store pages.
EDIT. Regarding Japanese equipment, the difference between them and crude HP etc. is like driving a tractor or a comfortable Cadillack. Is a Mercedes S-class translating into Polish conditions. Canon or Epson devices have a number of solutions that make life easier, that's why I like them. Convenience and ease of use or operation is also important, additional features such as scanner capabilities and its software, etc. I at HP had to scan each photo separately because it is not possible to place them on the glass in larger quantities so that the scanner will save them as separate photos. In HP you have to arrange it equally, in Epson or Canon I had a lot of facilities such as photo alignment, correction with different options, scanning as separate photos, etc., mass of various facilities. HP doesn't have it. One toner yield is not enough.
Thanks for the entries. I have a confusion in my head, hehe. I am not convinced to Samsung, HP is praised but expensive, on the other hand, I have inkjet HP and the error is already hanging for 3 years but the printer prints only very clearly, e.g. Text will print but borders or tables at all. However, I do not know if I will risk this Samsung. Is this Brother good?
HP and Canon lasers are the same constructions. They differ in appearance and software but the operation is the same. Of course, the toner symbols are different while they are fully interchangeable between printers. If the monochrome "home" device I recommend HP LJ M1132 or newer M125 or M127. Currently, devices from the M26 series have appeared. Sure there will be a price problem with replacements but in a few months the prices of replacements will be low as usual at HP. At your expectations, I think it's also a good choice.
It's like Samsung is Xerox, but Xerox's had, for example, a larger buffer, toners the same shape but different chips, powder also apparently different. Something for everyone too. After sweeping all HP devices I will never go back to them. As usual with these companies, they only have awesome marketing and unfortunately no hardware and service anymore.
But since 2-3 cards a month, buy the one you like the most, just not light, because it will be yellow, it is cheap and has a long warranty. HP breaks down in a strange way right after the end of the warranty, and the equipment in these times is worth as much as it has a warranty. Each printer printing 2 cards a month is enough for hundreds if not thousands of years. Buy a nice, cheap, with a long warranty. The questions you asked relate to several thousand runs a month. Then it makes sense to ask for durability, toner prices and substitutes.
Yes, I have a replacement in this Hp because it was 3 times cheaper and 2 times bigger, I print but poorly, I did not buy the color, it also probably gives its, but this printing is probably a matter of biting the chip ?
And the strange situation is with these printers because it is praised a lot and it turns out that even those for 500-700 is a joke. You described it nicely, which is similar to another company already with a different name, but I myself have such feelings, such as Samsung or HP, the cheaper ones are made on one hoof, all the same is inserted and programmed when there is something to feed ... That's why the choice is difficult in my opinion ? why are the equipment not recommended for 300-400 only for 500-600? There is little difference in them. According to user reviews, but only shop prices and this is the Samsung m2060w is the most favorable although as you write taking into account the amount of printing would do it and cheaper. If you give up the multifunctional and buy only a monochrome printer for 400-500 is the difference in quality big? Wat dare to doubt
Therefore, the choice is difficult in my opinion ? why equipment for 300-400 only for 500-600 is not recommended?
With 2-3 sheets per week the choice is very simple . You can go buy cheapest MFP lasers and that's it. Just notice that you wanted WiFi and it would be nice if it was possible to print from a phone. You pay for "goodies". Example: let's take this Samsung M2070 - you can buy the same device without wifi, with wifi, it is also available with wifi, fax and automatic document feeder. The price difference between the cheapest and the most expensive is ~ PLN 200, where the cheapest M2070 without wifi is about PLN 425. They are all based on M2026, i.e. a printer for ~ PLN 220. For PLN 300, however, it is difficult to recommend any new laser MFPs, the cheapest in the store is about ~ PLN 370.
If you give up the multifunctional and buy only a monochrome printer for 400-500 is the difference in quality big? Wat dare to doubt
For 500 PLN you will get Kyocera P2035d, for ~ 690 PLN you could buy P2135d. You would be surprised by the difference, not to mention the cost of printing, but not with 2-3 pages. With up to 10 pages a month, there is no point in making such comparisons, because the difference in purchase price will never pay back. This is not a purpose, not this class of devices, not these requirements. And if you want the printer itself, buy a Ricoh SP112e for ~ PLN 130, laser = it won't dry like ink, and there is no point in spending more.
I have HP Inkjet
Many companies have their ears behind, but I would just like to pay attention not to mix everything: typically home and office equipment, laser and ink, which often happens. If someone buys a Canon MG2450 for an accounting office, it is natural that such a device will not last long there. Similarly, as there are many constructions found under various brands - they often differ in prices, and in fact they are a different housing (or even not), a badge on the housing and software. Sometimes it can also be a problem with cartridges - because it can not be translated (e.g. another groove in the housing).
You explained that it couldn't be better. This Samsung is supposed to be a gift for friends, but thanks to the tip for Ricoh for 130, I thought the laser was more expensive, I personally print 10 cards a year, for 130 I don't know if I'm tempted. Two more such questions:
- This Samsung for 500 or Ricoh for 130 must still be switched on to refresh the toner? - if the printer is wifi, it has a wlan card in it, and not that you need to connect it to the router cable And only from the phone can the paw print via wifi? Yes, just to be sure, I ask
Thank you for the advice, I bought the device and presented it to my friends, they are rather very happy, anyway, I am impressed myself, the printer is standing and in any place of the apartment you can have a laptop or a phone to do whatever you want, fairy tale. For some it is not new, but for me - yes
