Business Mystery

My laser printer is nearly end of life for its belt and drum. Replacing both would cost slightly less than $200. Currently Office Depot is selling a very nice duplexing wireless laser printer for $100. The belt for the printer on sale is $120.

I'm used to this sort of pricing for inkjet printers. When did the manufacturers start doing this for laser printers?

Since HP quit making printers that last decades. What 'belt' are you referring to? Our Canon has no belt. And on the drum is part of the Canon cartridges. So you get a refurbed drum with every cartridge.
