Kyocera FS-3700 or Samsung ML-1520 Laser Printers

Would anyone know anything about either of these printers? The Samsung
is new and the Kyocera (refurbished) is older dating from 1997. Anyone
have any experience of using either, as I'm just looking for one for
printing letters. They're both a similar price.

Thanks for any advice!

Thanks Tony!

Apparently with the Kyocera Mita FS-3700 the drum & developer system
last for 300,000 pages, and I print under 5000 pages a year.

So as long as it hasn't printed up to the 300,000 pages, hopefully I
wouldn't need to get a replacement drum.

There's a store in Leeds that sells the toner for the Kyocera for
?7.15, which (I think) is fairly low in comparison to some toners.

Although the Samsung is new (and light usage) and the Kyocera is 2nd
hand (but heavy duty), I'm thinking as the Kyocera is an office
machine it might end up lasting a lot longer...

Is there a big difference in the amount of power used by these two
machines? Is there any way of finding this out?

Thanks very much Tony for the manual I've just received it, I'll have
a read at it now. Thanks for that!

Can I just ask, you were saying the Kyocera FS 3700 possibly uses
3x220=660 Watts.

If you check the link it says it uses 277 Watts, so does this figure
have to be multiplied to get the true figure?

I was wondering, as the Samsung uses 280W, so I'm not sure if I should
be comparing the Samsungs 280W to the Kyoceras 220W, or is the Kyocera
a lot higher as 660W?

Hope this makes sense...!

Thanks again Tony! Oh, I understand it now...

I was just wondering about the power consumption, as I don't want to
get a printer which is heavy on electricity.

I've been using a LaserJet III which is 850W, and I don't want to get
something which is so power hungry...!
