Setting up office at home.

If you are planning to set up an office in your home one of the places to go and get your IT equipment from is Low Yat here in Kuala Lumpur. But don't make the same mistake as us and buy the Brother fax/printer/scanner model MFC-J415W. It will cost you an arm and a leg in toner cartridges!! Is it just this model or are all home desk top printers ink guzzlers??! I have hardly done any printing (15 pages at most) and within 2 months of purchase we had to go out and purchase some more teeny toner cartridges that cost 40 ringit each. There are cheaper toners on offer but they involve refilling your cartridge casing with ink using a syringe! Messy and prone to leaking which can end up costing you buying a whole new printer.
I unfortunately, cannot offer at this point a printer I would recommend so please take this as a warning of what not to buy!
All your views and advice are welcome so please leave a comment or drop me an email. I will post this to the Low Yat forum as well. The Low Yat forum is a good place for you to check out what others are saying in the KL techy world.

P.S: A helpful samaritan on the Low Yat Forum suggested buying a Laser printer instead. Make or model was not mentioned.

Avoid buying this printer/fax at all costs!!
