    There used to be some printers (Samsung etc. IIRC) which came with cartridges with less toner than normal, giving less number of pages printed. There were such inkjet printers too. (Epson etc. IIRC). These were mentioned in the advertisements too in fine letters. But the toner with the Canon LBP 1210 which I bought about 4 years back lasted very long, though I have no idea of the number of pages printed. Now getting it refilled and having nearly the same quality.

    all new printers come with their cartridges filled about 10% of their full capacity. didn't anyone wonder the price of a new cartridge set is almost equal or more than thaT of a new printer :p

    Guys, i had heard that there is a software for windows named 'fineprint' courtesy of which , our non duplex printers have the facility to act as manual duplex printers...via a driver interface provided by that software ...

    Can anyone confirm the success rate of this software (or of anyother ) with respect to all applications ???

    ^ I used Fineprint long ago.. around 6 years back. It's a useful application - great print previewer plus allows final print to be corrected in many ways.

    As for manual duplex, well that can easily be achieved without any application. You would need to

    1) Print the odd pages first and

    2) Place the same set of paper correctly in the tray and finally

    3) Print the even pages

    :) voila manual duplex.

    Sorry for Hijacking this thread, but useful to you too.

    I have been using HP 1020 on networking and it rocks.

    Now I am in need to buy another Laserjet Printer for my home. How is HP 1020+.

    Any one can shed an idea on this one. BTW it uses the normal 12A toner which can print 2000 pgs. But kinda pricey too.

    ^^^ networking ain't a requirement , and 1016,18,20 rocks ... 12A has capacity max. of 160gm toner... same applicable for HP 1020+.

    and Samsung SCX 3201 has three warranty (1+2) if we pay 499/- extra @ the time of pruchase, by registering online and we need to mail filled docs.

    so prolly, we will go for SCX-3201 as no other competitor offers 3 years Warranty and such features. (basic) @ 8200(price)+500(2yearAdditional)=8700/-

    Letsbuy customber care told that ifthe Scanner Screen/glass is damaged while in transit, we will have to manually route unit to Service Centre with a DOA petition ... and followed by subsequent Lochaaa's ...

    So we will buy Locally.

    Samsung SCX-3201, ml1666,ml1688 have MLT-104 toner which has capacity of 110-120GM toner powder (non-magnetic), and yield 1300-1700 depending upon on your usage.
