LNL Printers For Schools - Tel. 01377 271167

We are already helping hundreds of schools throughout the UK to save money on their printing costs.
We offer the Lexmark C748DE duplex network laser printer on a free rental basis so that you only pay for the consumables used in the printer (toner cartridges, photoconductor units and waste bottles). The printer is provided with free warranty and free telephone support as part of a three year contract.
Use the form below to estimate the cost of printing based on your own printer and compare it with having the free use of an

Important! Inkjet cartridge yields are calculated using different criteria to those used for laser cartridges and cannot therefore be used in this calculator. See HP Inkjet Page Yields.

Real world yield Reduce to Toner yields rarely reflect the maximum stated yield. Use this percentage figure to reflect 'in-the-field' consumable yields. Refilled or remanufactured toners may yield considerably less than a genuine toner and the yield is not generally guaranteed. % Reduce to The Lexmark toners are typically yielding 90-95% of the stated yield at 5% coverage.

Important The results shown are theoretical maximum yields based on information that you provide. In a typical working environment, the number of pages printed may be less (usually between 60% and 95% of the stated yield). This will depend upon the coverage, how intermittent the use is and a number of other factors. The figures produced should only be used to produce a relative indication of the cost of using various colour laser printers. This estimator is therefore not guaranteed to give accurate figures and in using it you accept this. We respect your privacy. No information identifying you or your computer will be collected by LNL when you use this basic cost estimator.

LNL are always pleased to provide more detailed advice and assistance to enable a more accurate analysis of printing costs. Please contact us for further information. In the near future we will also update this site with more advanced tools and guides so please check back. Any feed back from users is very welcome.

Consumable Yields
Although manufacturers provide yield data for their consumables, they are obtained using ideal continuous printing conditions and may not reflect the results found in everyday use. In addition, refilled or remanufactured toners usually provide lower yields (see this Buyers Lab study for Hewlett-Packard).
Use the percentage adjustment figures to reflect the real-world yields that you may be experiencing.
