    Question Mono Laser Printer advice

    Anyone know which is a good budget laser printer to go for. I have a Samsung ML-1210 which I've had for years but now playing up - feint/banding print.

    I have seen the 2010 or 2510 with the main diffence seeming to be the PPM and tray capacity.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    We bought a HP Laserjet 1020 a little while a go as a secondary printer. It hasn't been used that much but it's behaved itself so far. I think we paid around £65 but doing a quick search the cheapest one I found was: £46.99 + del

    Also note that this doesn't come with a USB lead (A-B) so if you haven't got one you'll need to add that to your basket too.

    I picked up an old HP Laserjet 4+ from Ebay for around 40 quid delivered about 18 months ago - if you have the space and can find one in reasonable condition they really are tanks and will live forever. That said it really depends on what you're using it for...

    I think Samsung are still the way to go with so you're probably better off with the newer Samsung.

    I'm on my second Samsung personal laser - the first one I gave to my brother as his need was greater than mine. Lasted some time without printer and then I bought another Samsung.
