Dear all,

I want to buy a multifunction monochrome laser printer.
On my short list are the Brother DCP-7045N and the HP M1536dnf.
Now when trying to compute cost per page, I saw that HP does not offer a replacement drum, whereas brother does.
Does this mean that you cannot replace the drum in the HP, meaning you have to throw away the device when broken, or is the drum "kind of integrated" in the toner?

Best regards

Hi there,
the drum for the HP M1536dnf is as you say integrated with the toner cartridge itself, so when replacing the toner cartridge you are also replacing the drum.

Every laser printer needs a drum.
