I have three of them (Phasers) as well as a color laser.
The quality of the solid-ink phasers is just so much
nicer than any of the color lasers I have seen...

I suspect the total cost of my printing operations
(in terms of electricity) amount to less than a few
dollars a year (assuming 10c/KWHr).  What I'll "save"
by moving to a laser is negligible.

There are no *other* savings (I rescued the printers and
rescue the ink sticks) to be had.
