Most, (if not all), monochrome lasers have the drum built into the toner 
cartridge, so that is generally a non-issue.  While the fusers will go 
out, they generally last a good long time.  The paper feed rollers and 
pads can be the big bug-a-boo.  Most will last a good long time, but 
I've seen rollers go bad on new machines with only about 5000 pages 
printed on them.  That mostly depends on the environment.
