    Laser printer for home use...

    Anyone got any recommendations? I am looking to get a B&W laser printer for home because I am sick of the cost of cartridges and regularity of them running out for my current epson inkjet printer.

    I know this question has been asked before, but times are changing quickly and I thought i'd get the most up to date answers lol.

    Thanks

    I think any cheap laser (HP,Brother, Samsung) are about as good as any other - I'd go for the one that cheapest to maintain - ask your local cartridge refilling people - ours recommended the HP1010 last time I asked (a year ago)

    If you can pick one up, a HP LJ 5 - they are dirt cheap to maintain.

    Re: Laser printer for home use...

    I forgot to mention, it needs to come network ready as it'll be quite a distance from our server and I hate external wireless print servers due to previous experience. I think that rules out all the above printers if I looked correctly. Sorry.

    I have been looking at the "SAMSUNG ML-2571N MONO LASER" which seems to be alright. It's one of the cheapest I could find that is network ready.

    Nope, you can get a HP LJ 5N which has a built in JetDirect card.

    Go for a Brother or a HP, personally i would steer clear fromt he Samsung (purely because i have not been impressed with the two that our office girls share)
