printed more then expected
Some of you know that we bought a Brother multifunction colour laser printer (Brother MFC-9840CDW) in early September. Today I replaced the colour toners for it (cyan, magenta and yellow).
We are still using the older Brother MFC-8890DW (mono laser multifunction) after getting the MFC-9840CDW (colour laser multifunction) for the black and white printing. Simply I did the math like Don in beautiful Boston/reputable Rochester, I calculated the per page printing cost on both printer with genuine high-capacity toners. (Don calculates the cost of Mountain Dew price in per litre unit, which I only compare the price of soft drink on per can basis.)
As with current trend, all manufacturers provides "starter" (aka 'lite') consumable items, which quoted 1,500 pages for each colour toners at ISO (industry's standard) 5% coverage, and 2,500 pages for black toner. The printer kindly indicated low toner for me to prepare new toner cartridges. And before replacing the three colour toners today, the page count indicated 1,939 colour pages and 18 black and white pages printed. In other words, we printed more then pages than expected.
And for the record, the entire set of high capacity version of the toner cartridges (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) cost less than the printer itself!
