Toner Coverage?

by nelson photo / May 18, 2005 6:39 AM PDT

Recently I have found myself sick and tired of purchasing inkjet refills so I made the jump to Laser, not a far leap because I never use color.

Almost every toner cartridge says 3000 pages @ 5% coverage...What does 5% coverage look like (full printed text page, half text page, etc)? I am merely looking for a frame of reference and have not been able to find it.

BTW - I ended up purchasing a Canon Imageclass MF3111 at Costco for $170.00
