    Go for EPSON M100..

  • Canon 2900 lbp ,using it for a year
    working without any issues ,check for online / offline prices

    Canon 2900 lbp. First cartridge gave me almost 1200 sheets print out, mostly double sided. If printing in toner save mode for use and throw kind of things like question papers, output might be more. Easily refillable for 250 odd rupees. Offline prices can occasionally be lesser than online discounted prices. Do check.

  • +2 Go for Canon 2900. I have been using it for a year, its fast and delivers quality print. Initial cost may be a little high, but it has great value for money in the long term.
    @BrahMos @WhtvrHappensHppns I just refilled the toner(Canon 925) recently, but the print quality is not dark as it used to be(just around 50% dark of the initial cartridge). Did you get similar results after 2nd refill? From where did you get it refilled(in Delhi)? Any way around to get the same quality?

  • HP laser jet 1020

  • Got it refilled ten days back and there is a distinct reduction in darkness. Don't know how to get around it, but you can refill the cartridge only 2- 3 times till the quality is manageable ( or so I was told ). Will do my next refill myself using better quality toner and you tube videos. Hopefully that should help...
    Awaiting more knowledgeable people to give their inputs abd and tag me. @Old_Sport

    Also @DM_BABU , this printer does not support back to back printing. Just thought I should clarify this. Not that big a hassle though, you just have to turn the printed sheets around once and print the even numbered pages in the reverse order.

    definitely canon 2900B...if the requirement is only black printing and no scanning + xerox desired..if yes then samsung.
    canon 2900 b is a old timer but a badass . it is the clint eastwood of monochrome laser printers

    go for ricoh sp111. good option for B/w prints.

    it was recommended by other form member @hope16 . also u cn find good feedback from internet.
    I hve just bought it. price is also reasonable. Yesterday amazon listed it @Rs 2500/-. Paytm selling@ Rs2800/

    explore other online/offline retailer before finalization.

  • have a look at Brother Hl-1201 Printer ...Works well for me..refillable in 150 rs :)

    if lot many print outs than go for Canon 2900b. Its good one too.

    In Ricoh sp111....after 10k pages , you need to throw printer because cartridge cost is 3k rs (higher den printer) whereas Brother one has in 1100 rs.....

    What will be the cost of 1 page print out in Canon 2900b?
    ·
  • I've been using EPSON M100 for almost a year.....printed more than 5000 pages, still the tank is half full
    no tension of cartridge change....
    but it does not have xerox or scan facilities...
