"Very good color laser printer for under $200"3.5 starson by nrm590
Pros: Small and compact, very small foot print, pretty quiet operation for a laser printer, and it looks good. Cheap to replace toner compared to other laser printers and almost all inkjets.
Cons: Slow with color prints.
Summary: This printer is great for people who are looking for a decent color laser printer for less then $200. I got mine for $150 at Sam's Club, I am using it in my dorm room and it is great, I print out a lot of power points from my teachers website for class and it very useful. I use to have a inkjet printer but every few months I would have to replace the cartridges, and that got expensive.
So when I was looking for a new printer for college I saw this and I considered it as a maybe. My big concern was the price of toner and I found it ranged from $35-$42 and that was about the same price for high-yield ink for the inkjet at my house. But the toner lasted for a 1000 pages while ink lasted maybe at the most 350 pages.
I have used it to print text, power points, and a few photos. I like the quality of the prints. Text looks great on this printer as do text mixed with graphics, as for photos, granted for $150 they are not the best but they were better then I thought they be and they look better then most ink jet printers, the colors seemed real and accurate.
Bottom line, if you are looking for a decent color laser printer, that you will not use to print insane amounts, this is great. I print only about 50 pages a week of 99% being black and white and on an inkjet I would end up buying new cartridges every couple of months. with this I am good for the semester.
I almost forgot on top of the saving for toner it also looks great, and I like that it is so small I can put this in lots of places because it's size. It is not a giant like most laser printers.
