I use the one at Staples... Or office Max.
Honestly, the ink dried up on ours twice. So I figure I can run to Staples (normally) a bunch of times and still be cheaper than buying another.
If you use it very often, your results might be better.

HP has a new one out, a small Laser with a footprint just over 8x11 and about 8" high. Copier Scanner and printer, first cartridge does about 500+ sheets and replacement for 49 does 750-1000 sheets. Walmart about 105 and Bestbuy about 125. Got mine overnight from Best Buy on sale for 105 free shipping and everything, did not take geek squad on it. Can be wireless or wired. We like it and it cost 20 more than a set of cartridges for the Canon Ink printer that I was using. Hope this may help. Happy Trails Bert

HP model number please? Wireless, color printer and scanner in a small box sounds interesting.

For what it's worth I have a older non-wireless HP laserjet model P2015D that is a small (about 15x15x12) monochrome laserjet (double-sided USB printer only) that has served me just fine for over 14 years... the 53X cartridge does about 7,000 page sides... re-manufactured cartridges are about $25... per-page cost is less than 0.4 of a cent per page side... Beats the #%#&# out of inkjets that are up to 10 cents per page side.

BTW the P2015D is still available for under $200 from a number of sources including Amazon. The P2015 is single sided and for those that can use it the P2015DN model is double-sided and both USB and Ethernet.

The HP we purchased was a LaserJet Pro MFP M29W. It is not a color printer. It does work nicely and we run it off our wifi router. We looked mostly at its size and capability when purchasing and also, the price compared to a set of ink cartridges for the other printer. Happy trails bert

I have the little hp laser also. Not wireless for me, no network. I'm on a mac. Had to buy vuescan drivers to make the scanner work. I usually bluetooth from my phone to the computer. Trying to make it work wireless from my phone splattered my phones bluetooth. Had to upgrade android to fix that mess. So I just quit on the wireless. The vuescan driver works perfect. Dont understand why hp has a problem.

We just purchased this one as well. It will also scan and make copies. It is only Black and White but if you don't use it very much you won't be worrying about inkjet cartridges getting old, etc.

This printer also supports direct printing so you can print directly from your phone or computer wirelessly if not connected to a Router.

The key to any printer is INK and the cost of replacement INK.

Amazon - always has a number just remember it is only better if over time the ink is easy to get and the price is right.

Brother MFJ-J805W INKvestment. Printer scanner with wireless connections for all your mobile devices. T]his would be one I’d look hard at. And yes you can get some photo paper and print pictures.

Best of Luck,

I have a small Epson inkjet that does wifi/AirPrint. I’m only mentioning it as a reason NOT to get one.

Spend a bit more and get the smallest laser printer you can buy. I say that knowing that you’ll probably end up with only b/w as most color printers are larger) I have to print so infrequently that it takes about 4 head cleanings to get it to print something legibly after it’s been sitting. It’s actually cheaper to replace the entire printer than to buy a set of new cartridges for it and it can have a full black ink cartridge and still “mix” black using the color cartridges When printing in color documents.

A couple of weeks ago I bought a HP LaserJet Pro M15a at Walmart for $30. Haven't hooked it up yet. It's small and light
