Don’t waste your money on a Fax machine that uses Film.
A customer called for a price on Fax film for his Brother 1270e fax. He was buying 8 rolls a week at a cost of $28.00 per roll or $224.00 per week.
The PC-201 film he is using yields a coverage of 450 pages per roll or 3600 pages per week.
Using a compatible film at 300 pages per roll and $14.00 per roll would bring his weekly expense to $168.00, a $56.00 savings.
Further savings are available if he were to keep the frames and replace the rolls only. Rolls at $23.04 per 2 pack would reduce his weekly expenditure to $138.20 per week, an $86.00 savings.
His best option, however, would be to purchase a laser fax machine. For example the Canon L170 is on sale at Staples for $135 after rebate. Included with the fax machine is an S35, 3500 page cartridge (a $126.00 value at Staples). Using these fax machines with 3500 page cartridges would reduce his consumable expense to $126.00 per week or a $98.00 per week savings.
Further savings on the Canon fax would be to use a compatible cartridge at $95 for a savings of $129 per week savings!!
