Recommend a B&W Laser which does NOT need 600+W to Print

  1. Greets,

    I have an aging Brother HL-1450 which probably needs a new drum (if that will solve the dirt problem), but a new drum + new toner exceeds the price of most new lasers out there (yes, I know that those come with a starter toner, but the issue is the $117 drum).

    The HL-1450 draws about 350 Watts when it prints, and that is a decent power draw (lights dim). Most of the new brothers want double that (including the currently on-sale HL-5240).

    I am not married to Brother here ... can someone recommend a decent B&W laser printer which does not draw 600-1000W to print?
