Or you can buy 6 printers and use the free toners. It's cheaper than buying the toner lol
Good idea although if they are like the hp printers they give you a lower yield cartridge with the new printer. I see the new cartridges yields about 3000 pages. Might still be worth it if you just get half that though

Winhex does sector-sector cloning which is slower. If you use cloning software like acronis true image you can do disk / partition cloning which is much faster.
Sector-sector cloning is useful in scenarios where you need a 1:1 copy e.g. some software's copy protection methods write to a sector outside the filesystem which needs to be transferred as well.
These days disk / partition cloning is usually enough when upgrading to a larger hard drive and needing to clone the drive.
I'm not sure how that works. I assume it only copies occupied sectors? Thing is the disk is encrypted and the software has no knowledge of what's on the disk. Unless I mount both disks and do a copy like that.

Not sure cause I think you get different kind of encryption software / methods. If there is no proper file / partition framework you are probably better off using sector-sector. One can obviously test it by trying the partition clone method and see if it works and if so, use it in future to speed up the process.

I highly doubt that it includes a full toner tank. Most likely 1/3 or 1/4 full. "Starter Tanks" have been a thing for many years now. Still maybe worth it if you were considering buying genuine tanks.

Good idea. I think I want to do the same thing, any advice on which shipping option to pick?

I have amazon global standard or priority? Priority is double the price. Will standard still be delivered to my door? Or do I have to go to the post office.
