    • Best answerCost per page will vary depending on your toner cost. Get you toner cost and divide it by the Yield amount, which should give you an approximate per page cost. Remember that when trying to find figure out color cost, you’ll need to add up all colors. Example: If Black toner cost $100 and yields 2500 100 divided by 2500 Cost per page is $0.04 If color toners each cost $100 Yellow yields 2500 Magenta yields 2500 Cyan yield 2500 (100+100+100)divided by 2500 Cost per page is $0.12 The reason you divide by 2500 and not 7500 is tha all color cartridges are combined to form all colors. For instance if I print a paper with green, depending on the shade of green I just used some yellow, cyan, and a little magenta to create that color. It all counted towards the yield count as one page on each cartridge. Hope that makes sense.

  • Q: does this printer come with toner?  (5 Answers)

    By tiffyliz88 

    • Best answerYes, it comes with "starter" toner--black, cyan, yellow, and magenta. As I have just started using the printer I do not yet know how long the starter cartridges will last. Knowing Canon I expect that they will last a while, although not as long as the replacement cartridges they have available. In case you do not know this, Canon sells two versions of replacement toner cartridges for this printer--standard and high capacity. The high capacity cartridges cost more than the standard cartridges but of course they last longer. When it is time to get replacement toner cartridges I plan to buy the high capacity cartridges even though they cost more because in the long run they provide a better value and less cost per page of print. Also, in case you don't know this, laser printers--like this one--are more economical than ink jet type printers over the long run. Again, the toner cartridges will cost a good bit more than the cost of ink jet cartridges but you will get thousands of pages of print from a toner cartridge compared to hundreds from a liquid ink cartridge. I own and use both printer technologies. Another advantage of laser printers over ink jet printers is that unlike liquid ink, the dry toner powder does not dry up and clog the printer's printing mechanism if the printer sits unused for an extended period of time. The one area where ink jet printers do a better job is printing photos, which can be done on special photo paper.

    • AYou can scan/copy from the feeder, you don’t have to open the lid. You only need to place something on ge glass if you’re making a copy of a drivers license or something like that. I’d say about 25 inches tall after raising the lid
