Method one: buy a device (printer or MFP) is cheaper. You can do this in several ways: the most simple – buy the cheapest machine out of all that is in the market, more complex – one of several more or less suitable choose the one that lower class and, hence, cheaper, and last, most difficult – to buy a rebuilt unit suitable class. The initial benefit in all these cases is obvious. However, experts for something come up with terms such as "cost per print" and "cost of ownership of the device. Cost per page is calculated as the sum of the cost per print of all consumables. Consider a few examples: The cost of print printer cartridge price is calculated as divided by the resources of the tape cartridge itself. For example, for a monochrome laser printer Canon lbp 3310 cartridge price is about $ 87 *, divided by the cartridge 2500 ** obtain the cost per print – $ 0.03.
If your printer is a full-color, cost per print will be the sum of the results of each black and color cartridges. For example: for a color laser printer Canon lbp 5050 cost of ink cartridge is $ 74, * cartridge – 2 300otpechatkov ** value of one (of three) color cartridge – $ 76 * cartridge – 1 500otpechatkov **. Count: 74/2300 76 h3/1500. The cost of full-color prints for the Canon lbp 5050 is $ 0.18. Similarly, calculate the cost of prints on an inkjet printer or mfp.
