Depends on what you print.

I've had a Konica/Minolta monochrome laser for 3 years, but I print sparingly and don't print graphics.

Several questions. Black and white only? Is a high ppm volume required? Envelope printing? Legal/letter quality? True black required?

All these seemingly insignificant features and maybe some others, will rear their ugly heads at some point in your home use printers lifetime. :huh: Make sure the ones you require are available on the device you buy. Compare replacement ink costs. Manufactures make their money on the ink, not the printer. Creating the need then filling it is the capitalist way :thumbsup:
