Like you, I thought this must be a mistake – but it’s not!

Truly astounding. The Samsung ML-1710 Laser Printer is an nice present for someone who’ll think you’re really a big spender, when you’re not. Amazon has it too, for $91.

UPDATE
The printer has been discontinued, but Amazon has it used for $72.

    Yeah, but just look at the toner price: $75!! That’s the real game with printers these days. They can give away the hardware and they soak you with the ink or toner.

    Well, I am forced to agree with He Who Doesn’t Want Me To Speak His Name. Samsung’s printer is a loss leader meant to sell ink. Of course that is the game with inkjets, too. Replacing all four of my cartridges at once would cost about half or what I paid for my Epson C80 when I bought it, a lot more than it is worth now.

    Joe. Joe. Joe. I’ve noticed you often focus on getting bargains. But, then, you sometimes decide what looked like a bargain wasn’t. You seem like a solvent fellow, so why not just go on and spend the money for the very good or best?

    A little over a year ago I bought a Minolta PagePro 1350W for about $90. The replacement toner cartridge is about $75. About six months ago I saw the same printer being closed out for $50, and no rebates involved. I bought one and put it in the closet. The original toner cartridge in the first printer is only about half-gone, but when it’s empty I’ll throw the whole kaboodle out and break out the new printer.

    Yes, the printer can be cheap but what about the cost for toner or cartridges?
