Which Printer Has the Cheapest Replacement Cartridges?
Whether you’re interested in buying a new printer for the home or office, the cost of replacement print cartridges means it’s no longer feasible to base your purchase decision solely on the initial cost of the printer.
Why? Purchase a cheap printer, and poor performance and low print yield mean you could find yourself buying replacement cartridges more often than you would if you’d invested in a pricier machine.
Not only that, but some manufacturers charge more for cartridges than others – which is certainly something to consider when choosing your next printer.
To help you make an informed decision on the printer that’s right for you, here are a handful of printers whose replacement cartridges remain relatively cheap.
Canon Pixma MX535
Offering legendary Japanese build quality in a compact and affordable printer, the Canon Pixma MX535 is a great choice for those seeking the best of reliability and performance. Canon is renowned for offering some of the cheapest OEM cartridges on the market, making the Pixma MX535 a great choice for domestic printer users who don’t want to pay through the nose for replacements.
Epson Expression Home XP102
With all-in-one print, scan and copy functionality, there’s no question about the practicality of Epson’s Expression Home XP102 – but how does it fair in terms of cartridge cost? In short, it does pretty well. Thanks to individual ink cartridge input, the Expression Home XP102 lets the user replace discrete cartridges as and when they run out – offering complete flexibility regardless of the ink colour you use most frequently.
HP Laserjet Pro 400
If you’ve around £200 to invest in a new printer, the HP Laserjet Pro 400 delivers exceptional performance and cost effective page yield for a comprehensive range of print projects. Thanks to laser technology, users can enjoy fast, efficient printing from this HP printer – not to mention long periods between each new replacement purchase.
Providing all the mod cons – think wireless connectivity, AirPrint, A3 printing and an LCD touch screen – in a compact, reasonably-priced unit; the Brother DCP-J is an excellent choice no matter what your specific printing requirements. Belying its mid-range price (yours for £100), the DCP-J benefits from some serious on-board features, including SD input, full-colour scan and copy, and automatic duplexing. Then there’s the replacement cartridge cost - users can expect to pay little for new Brother-branded cartridges, and page yield per cartridge is generally good.
Samsung Xpress M2022W
As one of Samsung’s most popular printer models to date, the Xpress M2022W impresses thanks to its extensive features list and low running costs. Delivering fast speeds and effortless printing direct from your smartphone or tablet, the Xpress is one of the most convenient compact printers on the market. Plus, it’s also one of the cheapest to run – with the price of Samsung OEM cartridges undercutting the cost of rival manufacturers.
