Laserjet Pro M521dn estimated useful life + what repairs can I expect to be needed

How long can I expect the Laserjet Pro M521dn to last before major repair or maintenance. How to determine estimated life of the major components?

Back in the day, laser printers were almost indestructible. We bought one cheap, that had fallen off a pickup. Just some cracked plastic. Used it in our office for years. In another instance, our tech dropped one off his pickup. All that happened was the top sprung open and the hinge bent. The fuser lamp also shattered.

New models can't even survive a fall off the desktop. They are built real cheap and the toner is real expensive. That is where they make their money. Replacement parts are also expensive. You'll be lucky to get 2 or 3 years out of it.
