    He said the printer would need a new printhead and to be sent away to Canon who are now the only ones who can reset the printer and clear down the B200 error code.

    Just wrong....

    This would cost shed-loads to do.

    I'm on my second brother printer and only replaced the first because I wanted a laser printer. The DCP-9015CDW has had quite a few cheap replacement toner cartridges without any problems.

    I don't understand that.

    looking at the laser printer next to me, I see I bought it in November 2009.

    It's had one new drum assembly in that time (recently). The drums are rated at 25,000 pages. I think the soft plastic wiping blades lost their flexibity through age and the drum assembly contains most of the working parts. It's an OKI which is a baby version of their office printers, rather than one designed to be cheap for home use.

    It is a print-only, black only, printer, so less complicated than some. For a local club, I got a couple of HP lasers about 4 years ago. Light use and still going fine. I selected them because the offices I've worked in mostly use HP lasers and they seem pretty reliable.

    Can no longer see the products, my membership has lapsed.

    They say three don't buys, but they seem to list only 2.

    The two colour laser AIO's they list in the latest mag I have (Jan 19) are:

    HP MFP M281fdw: £240 and 74%
    HP MFP M181fw: £230 and 72%

    the recommendations on that page are (only 3 now)
    it might be an old page
