When looking at printers you cannot base your decision on the purchase price only, as this represents only a small proportion of the cost over its lifetime. It’s all about the Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO) and of course the features you need.

Ink and toner is amongst the most expensive liquid in the world, coloured ink is $5046 per litre, more expensive then Dom Perignon at $310 per litre, Chanel Perfume at $3314 per litre and Petrol $1.40 to the litre.
