Overall HP scores over the Canon and Samsung in terms of built quality, size, weight, compatibility and general availability of spares, repairs and refilling of toners.

HP Printers sell with a demo cartridge with a limited initial print capacity so u need to spend on refilling or a new toner cartridge asap.

HP/ Samsung toners  come with a chip that measures ink usage and needs to be changed /reset with every refill… which means added costs.

As things keep changing check if the new printer you are buying has a demo cartridge and an ink measuring chip.

Copy Cartriges without chips are available for HP and Canon, check for others.
