I currently have a HP OfficeJet Pro 8710, and while it's been ok I'm starting to feel I need something more cost effective. For a pack of genuine cartridges it is £100, and while I can buy compatible remanufactured cartridges, I find often they simple don't work. Take yesterday as an example, my wife wanted to print some material for work today but the printer said it was out of yellow, no problem, I have full set of compatible cartridges, insert the yellow and the printer refuses to use it. I ordered a genuine yellow which was delivered this morning, put it in and then the printer decides that the black is also empty. Again, no problem I had a spare black. Again, the black doesn't work either so I need to order a black for delivery tomorrow. I've read articles comparing InkJet and Laser printers, and most agree that while laser printers cost more, their cost per page is less and that's where you make the saving providing you print enough. However, my research is finding that many InkJet printers are on par if not cheaper than most laser printers < £400. We print somewhere between 2500 - 3500 pages per year. Our current HP costs about 2p for mono prints and 8p for colour prints, and while looking on websites such as printerland, I see that not many laser printers can beat those per page costs. So, are all of the articles I've read incorrect when they say that laser printers are cheaper in the long term? I'm struggling to see how.
