Thanks, I’m asking on behalf of ma and that’s good to know that she can just use it as a normal printer and restock the cartridge when she wants to.
Her use is very sporadic. She might need 300 pages one month and then none for a month or two. She doesn’t want to have to change cartridges often and only needs to print in black and white, so I think a mono laser jet is her best bet. I’m not quite sure the best use case for Instant Ink is quite the same for a mono laser jet as you need to change the toner so rarely and as her usage will be so unbalanced I think it’d work better for her than a subscription model, but most of the lower end laserjets come on the plan as standard. To add another layer is awkwardness she wants to get it from Argos because of something to do with Nectar points (?)
We got a simple laser jet at the beginning of lockdown, used it for ages and the toner goes on forever, but they don’t have our model, sadly, so I’m in a bit over my head looking for an alternative.
I might look to see if I can find an affordable second hand one for her.
