I have an Epson XP-850 multi-function inkjet which eats ink for breakfast so to keep operating costs down I'm considering a laser printer for everyday use (I'll keep the Epson inkjet for the occasional photo printout and for photo-scanning). I'm looking for the following features: - high quality, long lasting printer (I'm prepared to go beyond the cheapest printers available if that means better quality) - low operation cost - ethernet (cabled) network connection and USB - (preferrably) two-sided printing - (obviously) supporting OSX - preferrably a compact size Other features which I'm considering but aren't essential: - scanning feature (for receipts or other documents) - color printing (for web page printouts, text documents etc.) - automatic document feeder (great for scanning many documents) Scanning would mean a multi-function laser, but would that make for a less quality printer than just a laser printer? If I go for color, would that mean a much higher operating cost? And like with inkjet printers; will the laser printer refuse to work unless all color toners are available? In that case, a black/white laser might be less of hassle and cheaper to use. Things I've read in various threads worth considering: - HP laser printers should be avoided: they have chipped toners which expire by date (regardless of how much it's used!) - Brother should also be avoided because of their lousy support if it breaks down (though their OSX printer drivers are good) - color lasers are better at printing on ANY paper as opposed to color inkjets which needs specific (expensive) paper for decent color printouts of text/charts etc (not photos). I've heard good things about Oki laser printers, and I suppose Epson and Canon are good too. Which specific printers do you suggest I look into?
