Hi JJ,jjstewart said:Enough about costs. About resetters on The Hat’s list: I looked these printers up on Canon’s website and found one that shows Resetter Yes that might work, the Pixma MG 5520, which is the current version of the Pixma MG 5220 on the list. Precisioncolors.com says there is no resetter for this generation of cartridges. So, I’m right back where I started. I don’t like the idea of going to an old version, though the older Pixma MG 5220 did have Auto Duplex.
You may look again at the MG5220 as a possible option because this printer is a equipped with 552/226 carts which the last time I look can in fact be reset and a resetter is available, so Precisioncolor will just have to amend the information on their website.
Most laser printers can use a number of toner save settings which can dramatically reduce the amount of toner used on a sheet but if you set the printer to only use 300 DPI that in itself is a huge saving without reducing quality output at all.
Another saving can be had by using the high yield cartridges instead of the usual standard ones and then the next step would be to refill the toner carts yourself, but compatible one are just as cheap to use as refilling yourself, and if you decide to go the laser route then checkout inkowl.com
