Depends on the printer.

A B/W laser printer needs one toner, and the color ones need 2 toners.

Laser printers last around 6-months of regular printing, i have an old 1991 HP Laserjet, and the ink gets replaced around 6-7 months.

^ Yep.

Also, with laser printers, you're fusing the ink into the paper, which makes laser printer printouts > inkjet printer printouts.

I recommend HP. They started the whole "Laser" printer thing, and still make very good quality printers for the price.

Lexmark's are good quality, but aren't user-friendly. The ones at my work are so picky, they beep so many times.

Samsung printer's are OK, but very cheap in quality, and the printouts appear faint in color compared to HP. I'm guessing the ink they use is very cheap.

I highly recommend HP, since they have a great reputation with Laser printers.
