The (real) cost of printers
PC World has a recent article titled "Is Your Printer Stealing From You? Here's How to Tell." While the title is sensationalistic, the article does tell you how to judge whether a printer is a good deal or not. According to the article, some printers seem inexpensive because it’s a common ploy for printer vendors to sell machines at or below their production cost and then make their money later on with extremely high ink or toner costs. It goes on to list some printers that aren't as inexpensive as they seem and some that give you lots of ink and toner for a low price.
