£40 network(?) laser

I noticed yesterday that my local branch of Maplin are selling a Lexmark mono laser with USB and what appears to be a network port for £39.99 inc. VAT - I say "appears to be" because network connectivity wasn't mentioned in the flyer, like an idiot I lost the flyer somewhere so I can't check the model out on line, and it isn't currently on Maplin's web site. All I can say for sure is that the model number ended in an N, which usually indicates a network printer, and the connections at the back sure as hell looked like a network socket and a USB, but for all I know it's something else entirely.

Knowing Lexmark the toner is probably hideously expensive and the cartridge that comes with the printer will hold enough for about 100 pages, but it may be worth a look if you need a network printer for low-volume work.

later it's an E120N and seems to have fairly positive reviews; network ready, 600DPI, 19ppm, refurbished toner cartridge (2000 pages) £31 + VAT, new cartridge (2000 pages) £42.45.

Full specification here:

But I'm not very impressed by the toner cost, 2p plus per page.
