5. Brother MFC-L2750DW XL

If you print hundreds of pages each month, then it makes sense to spend extra money on a laser printer. For example, a single laser toner cartridge for the Brother MFC-L2750DW XL printer can print up to 7,500 pages despite not being significantly more expensive than traditional ink cartridges. Of course, you’ll have to sacrifice color printing if you decide to buy a laser printer such as the Brother MFC-L2750DW XL, but that’s nothing but a small inconvenience considering that you can buy a dedicated color printer for around $50.
