The toner will be partially full, usually half. The manual should say what the yield is for the starter cartridge compared to the full cartridge. So the buying of a new printer every time might not give the savings you are expecting.
You can also get 3rd party toner, gives great savings over the original toner and works quite well. I used a 3rd party one for my Samsung for a number of years and it worked fine.
OP is talking laserjet printer not laser printer there is no toner. At least that’s how I read the post.
And yes it seems cheaper to buy a new printer than the inks.
Mine is a Color LaserJet laser printer. It is indeed cheaper to buy a new printer.
Is there issue with using 3rd party color toners? How is the print quality of 3rd party toners compared with the originals?
Hello, I have a HP Color LaserJet Printer. It looks like it is cheaper to buy a new printer, especially when it is on sale, than buying the inks separately. It may be a waste to just throw away either the new or the old printer.
Probably the fuser.In the case of HP Color LaserJet printers, are the four ink toners (black, CMY) the only ones that need to be replaced? As I recall, about 30 years ago we had to replace some kind of drum. Don't remember the details. Technology could have been changed since then.
For inkjet printers, we have to replace not only the inks but also something else (print head?) as the printers get older.

I had a old Canon inkjet printer and got tired of buying the inks $$, now I have a Brother color MFC 9130, and have not replaced anything yet
An area I'm responsible for in the company I'm employed by is toner and maintenance for a fleet of several thousand HP Laserjet printers. My advice is to keep the printer and buy only HP toner, not 3rd party, and if you can get it in the X cartridge, do that.
3rd party toner has a much higher failure rate.
