lasers can fool you too. for the home user OK, but a client I knew bought up to date business grade color laser printers a few years back, "on special"
yes they handled the workload, (all day Mon- Fri, few boxes (10-20 reams) per week) but
- use a lot of toner - monthly, (luckily individually changeable, but 4 colors)
- occasionally need something a "toner waste cartridge" (- 1 for all colors)
- occasionally need new "print drums" (one per color)

I'd imagine most home users never reach those other-parts limits, but in business those are even more consumables do come up - each about the same price as a toner cartridge.

another gotya: "business" models go "out of production" real fast - already the limited supply for consumables if you can get 3 years before having to replace the whole thing you've done real well. (the printer will be fine, the consumables just cease to be available unless you can wait 2-3 weeks for the compatable items from China - actually quality not that bad these days but it's that lead time that doesn't work for business users.).
Signature ready for installation. Please Reboot now.
