color laser printer recommendations


Aug 2, 2011
I purchased my Okidata C5150n color laser printer about 10 yrs ago for my personal use. Total page count is less than 12,000.
It is now reporting I need to replace the drums. I’m also about out of all 4 toners.
The cost of replacing all 4 drums is $411.
The cost of 4 toner cartridges is $489.
Total cost $900.
So I’m faced with a decision of spending $900 to continue using my Okidata printer OR buying a new color laser printer.
PC World’s Top 10 Multi Function Printers range in price from $400 - $1200.
1. Brother MFC-9970CDW $614.95 - $778.00
2. Brother MFC-9560CDW $559.99 - $683.99
3. Lexmark X548dte ??
4. Samsung CLX-6220FX $399.00 - $801.77
5. OKI Printing Solutions MC561 Color MFP ??
6. OKI Printing Solutions MC361 Color MFP ??
7. Canon Color ImageClass MF9220Cdn $859.49 - $1,222.26
8. Xerox WorkCentre 6505/DN $749.00
9. Dell 1355cnw ??
10. HP LaserJet Pro CM1415fnw Color MFP $396.00 - $599.99
I have an HP scanner and an HP fax so I really don’t need a MFP.
I am interested in receiving feedback with advice and printer recommendations.
