    Get a cheap black and white laser. Face it, every printer is going to give you problems. Make it a cheap laser and throw it out once the toner is out.

    If you need something more like an All-In-One Printer the Kodak 6.1 Hero isn't bad and the B&W ink is like $13 and the color is close to $20 and good for close to 400 pages

    same here i agree. I think I paid a couple of hundred of dollars for a brother laser printer which was awesome. Just beware of what the re-occuring cost of new toner is. The cost of the printer might be in-expensive but then the toner will be ridiculously priced.
