The toner used in laser printers lasts longer. As a result, the yearly toner costs stay low, which means you’re less likely to discover that a printer that seemed like a bargain in the store starts eating a hole in your budget as time goes by.
For example, the yearly toner costs for the three printers below ranges from $19 to $48, according to our calculations and estimates of typical printer use. That beats the annual upkeep for some similarly priced all-in-one inkjets by more than $100.
Your costs will vary with how much you print, plus what prices you find for the printer and toner. Members can find estimated annual ink or toner costs in our printer ratings.
