gapTCO is an intuitive, graphical user experience designed to allow simple and easy analysis of the Total Cost of Ownership of printer and MFP devices. This month: A comparison of the Brother HL-3170CDW, HP LaserJet Pro 200 Color M251nw, and Canon imageCLASS LBP7110Cw (released December 2013).

At an AMPV of 1,000, length of ownership of 2 years, printing 25% in color, and using Manufacturer Suggested Retail Pricing for hardware:

  • The Brother HL-3170CDW is the winning printer with the lowest TCO of $1,941.28, followed by the recently launched Canon imageCLASS LBP7110Cw ($2,179.48) and lastly the HP LaserJet Pro 200 Color M251nw ($2,300.17).
  • Only adjusting AMPV and maintaining all other printing environment parameters the Brother HL-3170CDW maintains lowest TCO up to its max monthly duty cycle of 30,000 pages.
  • Adjustments to the number of color pages have a large impact on the TCO of the Canon imageCLASS LBP7110Cw. For example, if the number of color pages is dropped between 1% and 20%, the Canon product has the lowest TCO, and at any value over 26% the Canon imageCLASS LBP7110Cw has the lowest TCO.
