I work in construction and need to print paperwork to take on the road with me, so I need to carry at least a month worth of paperwork because I never know when I'll have a chance to get home or find a print store (if one is even available in whatever area I might be in). This means carrying over 200 papers with me at any given time. I had bought two wireless inkjet printers (Epson) to accomplish such a task, but was literally spending $50 a month in just black ink. However, in order to print in black on most modern inkjet printers, you have to have ALL of your colors filled up, and the cartridges must be "in date" otherwise the printer will disable them, forcing you to purchase more and more ink that you don't even need (both Epson printers refuse to print using just black ink, despite it being full). Finally in a fit of rage, I decided to take apart and salvage parts from those two inkjets to use for other electronics projects, and get myself a laser printer. I didn't care how much the printer was, I just knew I wasn't spending another dime on ink, just to get bad print quality, or have to calibrate the printer (thus costing more ink). This printer caught my attention, as I couldn't believe how cheap laser printers have gotten. To make things even better, it's wireless and works with Apple AirPrint, as a ton of documents come emailed to my work phone. This makes it easy to print straight from my phone instead of having to forward it to my personal email or use a cloud service. Inside the box is the most basic, no-frills printer you'll ever see, and I couldn't be happier. The setup was incredibly easy and fast. Please note, it does NOT contain a USB cable for hooking up straight to a computer, but Walmart sells them for less than $10. You get a "starter toner" which is completely full, as if you had bought a full cartridge off the shelf. There's none of this "print two pages and it's empty, forcing you to buy a full cartridge" nonsense. I've printed over 300 documents, and the toner is still 85% full. These documents are FULL pages, not two sentences. The best part is you can use generic toner cartridges, these use the common Canon 137 toners, which everyone and their mother sells. Even for a name-brand toner, $78 isn't terrible. It's also extremely fast, and quiet. It doesn't shake violently like an inkjet since there aren't as many moving parts. Overall, this is the best purchase I've made for my home office in years. While the world is shunning hard-copies in lieu of digital records, some industries still heavily rely on physical hard-copies, such as construction. Buy one of these printers. The only reason someone needs an inkjet is to print pictures, which you're better off going with a print shop to do anyway (financially speaking). I can't speak on the longevity of the printer itself, I don't see it as being a industrial office machine, but for a home office it's perfect. It's well built (it weighs about 30 lbs, so just be aware this isn't like an inkjet where you can set it on the shakiest table you can find), the toner is affordable (regardless of whether you decide to purchase name-brand or generic toner), and fast.
