Cheapest to run, most reliable laser printer of all time ******
3 April 2012
Summary: I can't really imagine why this printer doesn't have 5 stars across the board. I've used and installed dozens of these over the past two decades. They are UNBELIEVABLY reliable. They are super easy to repair (I'm a real klutz at this stuff and I can do it). The parts are plentiful and cheap.
Summary: I bought my LaserJet 4 about 15 years ago, when they were selling new for $1200.00, at an business auction for $750.00. That was an excellent price for it back then, and when I look at it now, I still think of how "I've gotten my money's worth" out of it.
Summary: Check out the cost of inkjet printing. You get about 400 pages with a black and white cartridge (at low quality)for about $30.00 which is about 7.5c a page. A standard toner for this printer which you can get for $20.00 off of eBay does 6800 pages is .2c a page (in other words, 5 pages for 1c).
The LaserJet 4 was great when new but is even greater now!

Pros: Rugged, durable, dependable, high quality, low cost, works with both DOS and Windows.
Excerpt: I've used a 4+ in my office for years and was pleased enough to get one for home use now. Pros: An inexpensive networkable printer that can easily be found for under $100 on ebay and other sources. Toner and accessories are inexpensive as well.
Pros: Durable. Inexpensive to purchase and operate. Network capability.
Cons: Bulky. Not as quiet or efficient as newer models.
Summary: An excellent laser printer for the home. Tired of waiting for that page to print? You don't have to with the 4 series. And it comes in an affordable package that puts the power of laser printing in four hands.
