Epson AL-C1100 efficiency

Today we discovered that Epson’s wonderfully affordable colour LaserJet printer (the AL-C1100, networked) isn’t actually as efficient as they claim.

Epson are quick to promote the number of pages per cartridge this bessy can do (which I agree, is very good for a colour laser) but they somehow forgot to mention the Photoconductor unit, which costs £150 to replace, only lasts 15,000 pages. That’s another 1p per page, or 2p per double sided.


So before you go buying one of these printers, when you’re calculating the cost per page, don’t forget to add 1p to your total, for that stupid photoconductor unit.
