Hi guys.

I have been pretty quiet around here as of late. Personally just been busy with work (I'm an apprentice electrician now)

I'm looking for an old laser printer so I can cheaply print off my apprenticeship papers. I'm located on the shore and can drive around Auckland. Willing to part with a box of your favorite beer or $20. Doesn't have to be flash just print black on paper nicely :).

Cheers

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Over the period of the next six months probably 1000.

Computer recyclers often have them cheap, some sell on trademe. Got an HP commercial one for $10, and has never needed new toner. Also get one that does duplex, as it saves on paper.

Remember that toner often costs more than a used laser printer.

 

That's why there are so many cheap used-but-tonerless printers on the market.

 

Buy a new entry-level printer.

Yeap, pays to buy one that is at least 1/2 full. But you can also buy recycled cartridges at a fraction of the price, and I have never had a bad one yet. 

 

The cheap new ones you can buy tend to only have starter cartridges, and the toners for them are small, so the printing cost per page on the small cheap lasers are quite high. Where the commercial ones are far cheaper to run. But the toners are also a lot more new. Some are hundreds.

The trades seem to pay very well in NZ, especially in these boom times for houses. Tradies seem to do far better than university qualified building professionals, such as Architects for example.
