    OK then, on my HP business inkjet I print real color pages (as in much more than 5% coverage) for 0.4 cents a page ($200 for 4 liters of ink, one per color, which makes 50 000 prints). Only consumable part is printheads which cost under $100 and last at least 50 000 prints.

    Total cost per page for ink and consumable parts (excluding paper): 0.5 cents a page.

    I've done 250 000 prints so far on my inkjet for under $1000 of ink.

    I don't think you'll ever find a laser printer that can print anywhere near this cheap.

    I don't get why so many people think laser costs less per page when it's far from the truth. My laser printer costs me 7 times more per page and that's with compatible cartridges and refilling them. Without that the laser would cost 80 times more per page.

    Some of the Kodak and IBM inkjets get that low but they're like hundreds of thousands of dollars for the printers.

    Just think how low you can get te cost per page by re-using the waste toner. Key word being waste.

    Exactly, inkjets, so lasers can't get anywhere near as low a cost per page probably due to the cost of toner which will likely never be anywhere near as low as the same amount of liquid ink.

    The waste toner is waste because it is contaminated with neutral toner particals and paperdust.
    The neutral toner dumps on the transfer roller/ corona.
    The paperdust sticks to the cleaning blade and scratches the drum.
    This is why you are being given such a hard time.


    Sounds like Ultimate just trying to stir things up again.
    Why do they call it common sense?

    If it were common, wouldn't everyone have it?

    I've gotten the point by now and definitely will not be reusing my waste toner.

    I'm new to laser printing, I had been using inkjet due to the much lower cost per page (and of course still have my inkjet for low cost high volume printing).

    You know I kinda have that feeling also that something is strange about this character.
