I just need a printer for CVs and maybe some uni work. I know I want a laser one because I've seen they tend to look better on the page, just wondering what a decent one is and what kind of price I'd be looking at? I only need it for black and white text really so won't need anything fancy!
Thanks!

Usually the cheaper the printer the more expensive the cartridges. Epson do a good basic range and the compatible cartridges are easily available and less than half the price of epson ones..Good luck

Do you use cartridges in a laser printer?

Yes, toner cartridges wink

I like HP for printers, but I'm not sure if they're pulling out of the home printer markets as well as the PC/laptop market.

PC World currently have a Samsung laser printer for 39. The replacement toner is 59.99: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/samsung-ml-1660-monochrome-laser-printer-10819329-pdt.html

Well they are called toner cartridges, but I know what you mean.

With laser printers you basically buy a cartridge full of toner powder, these vary in price from expensive for the original manufacturers ones throught to OEM and cheap refilled units. If you want the cheapest option you can usually just buy the toner powder and refill it yourself (some are more difficult than others, some need a chip to be replaced as well).

I have two different ones, one is black only, I can buy replacements for about 25 or refill it three times for about 15.
The other is a colour but the cartridges are very small, then again they only cost 12 each, but lots of black soon empties them.

Eek confusing! blush
Yeah I saw that Samsung one after a quick google, just wondering if that's okay for what I'm looking for, don't want to get anything that costs more because it's got fancy things that I'll never use. I dunno, maybe I'll just stick with going to the uni library crazy

I'll have a look and see if I have an old laser printer stored away anywhere, if I do you can try it out and see if it's any good.

Tesco's have this HP all-in-one printer for 26.97. It copies, scans and prints. Its cheaper than buying new cartridges.

may I suggest getting printing done at local library? 10p/sheet so you dont have to invest in a printer & waste a fortune on inks, works for me!
