Buy a ML-2010 to replace E210

I have a Lexmark E210 black-white laser printer, which I bought in December 2001. It works well.

This week I go to some computer store to find the toner because of the text is fade on the paper. The result is telling me to get a new printer instead of buying a toner for E210.

In Staples store at Burnaby, the brand new Samsung ML-2010 is on sale. The regular price is about 199.00. The real cost is about (199 – 70(instant rebate) ) X 1.14 (tax) -30 (mail in rebate) = 117.00
The cartrige for Lexmark E210 is about 128.90 X 1.14 = 147.00
ML-2010 is more advanced than E210 based on the specifications.
Faster, Higher resolution, Save more toner, most important is cheaper.

The cost effectiveness ratio is so good. If you have same issue, buy a new printer.
