    HP makes the best laser printers, bar none.
    You can get a low-end Laserjet 1000-series for about $130 retail. Less if you hunt.

    I'd like to latch onto an old LaserJet 4, preferrably a 4mv (I think). Those suckers last forever.

    Some Samsung models require a non-standard driver that won't allow you to share the printer on a network.
    I have seen problems with Lexmark printers, and don't like that brand in general. I know others who swear by Lexmark.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      I always use either HP or Samsung, don't like Brother, used them at a company I worked at and they were always failing and the costs are astronomical for toner and drums.

        At work we use, Lexmark laser printers and at home I use Samsung laser printer. I got the Samsung for around $80 after rebate at Office Depot. Be prepared for expensive cartridges with any laser printer...almost cheaper to buy a new printer every time you need toner!

            I about halfway through Darque's post before realizing that this thread is about laser printers, not laser pointers!

            The part about only needing a black and white one ereally got me confused. Sorry to say I can't help you with printers, off to bed before I misread something else...

                Another vote for HP


                and yes our main B/W laser printer in the office is a HP 4. (in french )

                Stay away from ones which load the paperfrom above in a vertical plane, ie the 5L, 6L etc.

                I personally liked the 5Si and 8000's Stripped many of those babies down to the metal

                    Use a samsung SCX-4016 printer/copier here I found at Best Buy for around $90, works great. Buy your toner online and save a little at least.

                      Your number one criteria for selecting a laser printer should be toner costs. One of the great things about the Samsung units (at least the ML-1710 I got a few years back) is that the factory toner carts have a plug that allow for re-filling without any drilling. So rather that spend $70 on a new cart, I just pay $6 for raw toner on eBay. It is definitely worth researching refil options before making a selection!

                          I also have to vote for the HP. I have a HP 5 with extra paper trays and I bought it used about 7 years ago (from a business). I have personally ran approx 5,000 pages through it and have yet to have a single problem.

                          It replaced a HP 4 which I ran at least 20,000 pages through (used to use it to print flyers for a business). I ended up selling it when I got the 5.

                          I have also had a Lexmark Laser (e810) which was just a rebadged samsung. It lasted about 6 mo before it just quit.

                          you just cant go wrong with the older hp lasers

                            I also used to have an Epson Laser...

                            It was something like a Epson Laser II or something like that. Used it for 15 years, and one day, it just blew the **** up... Toner all over my wall... It was crazy..

                              I got a Brother HL-2040 after my second Epson C series took a ****. Its a good printer, but the manual feed SUCKS! It never tracks straight, ends up tearing the page.
