    Buy a MFC instead. You can do scanning and printing with one device.

    @minitt bhai, color page ki print kora jabe nah color cartridge diea? xD

    U can put in color page but the text/image will be black. Not sure if this is what u've asked. Color laser printer costs at least 40K or more.

    ML-2165 can only take black toner. which means it can only print black and white & grey-scale. Laser printer's toner never dries up like inkjet printer which is a pain in the back. This is a common problem for any inkjet printer. Besides, Per page cost is much cheaper with laser printer although toner price is quite high but u can print a lot page for long time.

    Inkjet printer per paper print cost is around 8-9 taka or higher when the ink dries up earlier whereas laser printer print cost is around 3 taka and the ink (aka toner) never dries since the ink itself stays in a dry powder form. Last but not least the quality of laser print is sharp & perfect everytime.

    if u regularly need a scanner then buy a 2nd hand MFP that has a built in scanner for 900 to 1200 taka.

    Weren't u buying a scanner a few days ago? If not then consider MFC as suggested above. Though the cheapest MFC will not b in your budget.

    Any cartridge print costs min 5 bucks a page. A page, as per international standards, is considered as any ONE-SIDE of a page with as much as 5% print on it. Cartridges r cost-ineffective and a 15-day hiatus may dry up the tank. Which case, u'll have to run and buy another set for roughly 2000/-. Even with regular print cartridge yield is fairly low. Mayb around 200 pages or so.

    As minnitt mentioned, lasers use toners and provide some comfort with elongated periods of printing. Also nowadays many compatible chinki toners r also available. Though they have the possibility to damage the print head, a thing to consider is that printer drum has a duty cycle (in case of laser) of 10000 prints average. After 10k prints, the drum needs replacement. After 10k prints, a new printer at a lower or equal price may also arise.

    Ok, enough fooking lecture.

    If u need heavy printing, regular printing in both color and BW, u maay consider the EPSON multifunction @ 10.5k. Look up the model number, this is very new in the market. This comes with a pre-installed ink tank and uses approved CISS technique. 4 bottles of ink come with it and they boast a total yield of 6000 pages per tank. However, when tank is finished u will be forced to buy EPSON ink only. Inki bottles run @ 500 each.

    Or as minnitt so aptly put get an entry level monochrome laser printer. U shud find one within 8k.
