Printer recommendations

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Help!

 

Our venerable HP 5740 Inkjet printer died (I had planned on going first) -- won't feed paper... and We're stuck with $200 worth of ink cartridges that won't run in newer models.

 

We just need a small footprint, light-duty, reliable, good quality color printer... some occasional pictures.

 

It appears that most of the printers available today are all-in-one devices -- printer. scanner, copier, fax, toaster, refrigerator... Oh, sorry Tim.

 

 

We already have a scanner that we seldom use (birth certs and recipes), so we don't need that, a copier or fax.

 

 

I am looking for recommendations... would even consider paying more for a color laser (or whatever) printer.

 

 

TIA

well this going to sound like heresy round here given current trials and tribulations - Samsung, there I said it..Really they are making some great laser printers that are a snap to configure on a network. Fast, duplexing is a breeze and even work with idevices using the Samsung mobile print app, free dl. Even the cost of their consumables is cheaper than many of the established brands.
fwiw - I wouldn't go back to ink unless I needed wide format for some reason.

The ease of config compared to what I have put up with in the past from hp, canon, epson, Kyocera was in my experience fantastic.
ymmv but I think they're great and wouldn't hesitate to buy another.
cheers
