My original post:
Greetings, all. I've recently picked up a couple
SPARCprinter E printers, and I've been wondering
about toner cartridges for 'em.
It looks like the printer is actually a Lexmark
(Optra+?), with some Sun OEM stuff tacked on.
Is this correct?
Would it be more cost effective to buy toner from
a Lexmark dealer, rather than paying $280 a clip from
Sun Express? Does anybody know if I can even stick a
Lexmark toner cart in the SPARCprinter E?
I received only 3 responses, but one confirmed my theory:
Laura Taylor (email@example.com)
The original SPARCprinters were made by Xerox, and they were
Jane Medefesser (jane.medefesser@Eng.Sun.Com)
Good work, Watson - this is exactly correct. The Lexmark consumeables
will work in your SPE ---- of course, Sun doesn't want to tell you
this, but most wise system managers figure it out :-)
Dennis Schwindt (firstname.lastname@example.org) wanted to know if I'd found a source
for my toner needs. From his .sig, it looks like he can supply cartridges:
** Sun SPARCprinter Sales, Service and Toner Cartridge recharging. **
So now, the next step is to find a relatively cheap vendor for Lexmark
printer toner carts...
Thanks to all who responded.
