    I have had a Canon Pixma MP500 all in one for several years, and it is a great printer. BUT, I am really, really tired of paying for the ink. Even though I buy my ink for much less over the internet, an ink jet printer is cheap to buy, but expensive to use.

    Are their any reasonably priced all in one color laser printers on the horizon that would be of good quality? For this type machine, I'm thinking under $500 would be reasonably priced, and I would seriously consider it.

    Check the cost of color laser consumables, it's not unusual to find a complete set of toners get close to the printer price.

    Kiwiguy,

    Thanks for your rely.

    I'm sure you are correct about laser toner being comparable in expense to inkjet ink. They key information would be how fast they use it. I understand that laser printers use the toner at a much slower rate than inkjet. Do you know anything about that?
