Short Review
Estimated Price $550

Laser printers in terms of economics is more efficient than inkjet printers. Some argue that investing in printers at a more expensive price is more cost-effective in the long run. This is due to the cost of printing is more efficient than cheap printers.

The 3100cn paper tray can hold up to 400 sheets. Very fitting is used when print hundreds of sheets at a time.

Unfortunately, 3100cn does not have a copy and scan function like most laser printers today. Samsung Xpress SL-M2876ND Monochrome $183 comes with three functions in one device. For printers with such prices M2876ND noteworthy.

For comparison, the cost of black and white printing on M2876ND is only 0.6 cent per sheet while 3100cn reaches 1.2 cent per sheet. Resolution and print speed is better ie 4800 x 600 dpi, 28 ppm. While HP LaserJet P1007 $90 much more extravagant that is 4.4 cent/sheet.

Laser Printer Toner Price
  • Dell 3100cn :
    Black Toner 4k Yield $47
    Magenta Toner 4k Yield $11.5
    Cyan Toner 4k Yield $46
  • Samsung Xpress SL-M2876ND :
    Samsung MLT-R116 Imaging Unit 9K Yield $55
  • HP LaserJet P1007 :
    HP 88A Black Original LaserJet Toner Cartridge 1.5K Yield $66
Nevertheless, 3100cn excels in more economical power consumption. Both competitors are wasteful where M2876ND 400 W and P1007 315 W.
