Laser Printer for a Dorm room - Samsung-M2830DW-Xpress toner?

ms2000 1,308 28 June 1, 2016 at 04:59 PM More Staples Deals
I am looking for a monochrome, small footprint, laser monochrome printer that can be easy for toner refill, for a Dorm.

I found this for $60 - SL-M2830DW - but unsure of the toner refill - and the chip?:

Amazon reviewers seems to complain of paper jams.

Are there better printers, deals?

I have been using HP Laserjet 3330 - toners are easy to find - are these toners inter-changeable with the above mentioned Samsung?

Any other ideas?

Well the toner will not interchange but monochrome toner is pretty cheap. Are you sure you don't need color or a scanner?

Seems like the starter toner is small and new toner costs more than printer.

Amazon has it for 35 bucks

Can the starter toner refilled without buying another?

Is there a small footprint one with scanner? What is it?

There are relatively small ones with flatbed only no adf.

Toner is messy enough to refill, just buy cheap replacements.

Brother / Dell may be better values.

i usually google refill on ebay to find out if refillable. this one seems yes, need to replace the chip too ( or reset it yourself if you know how, some need a JTAG cable)

I meant to ask is there different in the physical structure of the cartridge between the starter vs real?
I am wondering if they just half fill the starter.

this toner refill's reviews said yes. www.amazon.com/IMAGE%C2%A9-Cartridge-MLT-D115L-SL-M2880FW-SL-M2830DW/dp/B00FUWT20M

maybe buy chip later, because toner runs out first before the chip, but better have a back up chip ready.
