The choice of a monochrome laser printer (MFP) budget level. Recently, more and more began to receive letters and phone calls from customers asking for help in the selection of monochrome laser printers. Frankly, this is the beginning amaze the whole staff of the PCC, it would seem, on the Internet on this subject there is a lot of reviews, tests and papers. What problems may arise when choosing? It turned out not so simple. Articles and reviews are numerous, but all have a significant negative – they rely on data supplied by the manufacturer, in some present their own testing, but, again, again, this test is to test the speed indicators.
In a word, not one review or tests are not paid attention to operational and design features of printers from different manufacturers and individual models. While the new printer and print to the factory gas station – no problems. But what will happen next? do not buy the same every time a new cartridge. What will happen with the printer 30, 50.100 thousand printed pages. What is the value of its future maintenance? What threatens the user in case entering the printer foreign objects (to our regret, this happens quite often)? Certainly, these aspects of the user's benefit far more than minor differences in print speed or time First page out (on these figures emphasize all the surveys and tests).
Here are those questions and I will try to answer in this article. To start shortly describe the state of the market in this segment. To date, market models such manufacturers: Canon, HP (Hewlett-Packart), Samsung, Xerox, Oki, Epson, brother, Minolta. Particular attention will be just the first four producers, because their models are more common and have status, so to speak, "folk" modelemy. Note that the printers of Canon and HP are full analogues, ie, hidden under the body exactly the same machines, made by a development.
