HP Printer Yields ...

HP Printer Yields ...

HP Printer Yields ...

Has anyone else noticed how it seems that every new HP printer that comes out has a worse yield per cost of toner?

In going through the page counts on all my printers it seems nothing matches the old 4200 series (or large 4345 MFPs for that matter).

I have 50-100 HP printers of various models throughout the office spaces where I work. I would like to standardize them.

The new laser MFPs have a page yield only slightly better than inkjets!

Does anyone know of a decent HP printer with a good high page yield that's not going to cost a ton of $?

Or am I fighting a losing battle with the printer powers that be?

RE: HP Printer Yields ...

Quite possibly fighting a losing battle. Everyone seems to be just making it as cheap as possible and not really concerned with maintenance, more going towards the "trash and buy new" mentality.

That being said, what do you need out of your printer? Duplex, high ppm, scan/fax capability, low toner operating cost, etc....?

One thing that I utilize here is ldproducts.com for aftermarket toner. It significantly cuts down on operating cost and their customer service dept is extremely helpful and quick to fix any issues. Just a thought.

Learning - A never ending quest for knowledge usually attained by being thrown in a situation and told to fix it NOW.
