    I am trying to do a cost comparison and am able to find out the duty cycles of toner cartridges; image drums but cannot find out how long a fuser unit should last on a laser printer. Can anyone help. I know that it will vary from machine to machine but cannot find anything so a rough idea would certainly help me.
    Thanks,
    Tim

    Like you said it. It varies from machine to machine. I think if it's a corporate laser printer, it should last from 50000 sheets ish, to whatever it goes to...

    look at image quality. with regular cleaning
    you can use them until they start giving bad
    images.

    large image coverage can dirty them up
    quickly.

    for home use where high quality images
    aren't needed you can often do a couple
    cartridges before the fuser gives out.
    business may replace more frequently.
