I don't have a wide format laser. My 7500 will print up to 13" x 19". The XL ink carts are only $14.99 each ($29 for the XL black), and the HP utility allows me to control ink usage. The color laser has auto duplex, so I save on paper, but a full set of toner carts can cost up to $500! eek

HP does have a really sweet wide format duplexing color laser (prints up to 18" x 24") for $1600. Not bad, considering. But those toner carts cost twice as much and the f'n thing weighs over 100 lbs. shocked
