What is the difference between this printer and the SP C252SF? Is the cartridge size the only thing?
Nickkk on Jun 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The major difference is the cost to purchase the printer and the cost per print (of supplies). For those who print little, the SP C250SF is a better deal, for those who print much, the SP C252SF is a better deal. The SP C250SF has a very competitive CPP, but the SP C252SF is one of the lowest available at 8.9 cents per color print and 1.8 cents for black. Of course, these prices are simply the SRP of the supplies divided by their declared yield using ISO/IEC19796. Actual results will vary, but almost all manufacturers use the same ISO/IEC standard for declared yield, so results can be compared.
