Premium-Inhalt. Are you wondering who would want a black-only printer when there are color MFDs available for less than half the cost? These machines are intended to be 'personal' printers, meaning for professionals who work out of their homes or run a small office; and as 'small work group' printers where a team of around 10 members can share such printer for their document printing needs. All these printers are priced below the Rs.10, 000 (US$200) mark (except the HP Laserjet P1505 that carries a tag of Rs.11, 299, but HP has assured us that the model will see a price cut to bring it to Rs.10,000). If your printing need is documents without color, getting a budget laser printer will give you a higher duty cycle (read: more rugged) and lower printing cost as compared to any entry level inkjet. Given the fact that these printers don't cost much, they can serve as a secondary printer to complement a color inkjet / MFD.
