I'm looking to purchase a fax/laser/scanner/copier for home use and I'm interested in any reccomendations. We rarely need color, so I'm considering a laser for the reduced operating costs, but inexpensive lasers seem to need frequent drum and tonor replacement so I'm not sure if that will actually save money. We probably print less than 50 pages/month and will scan or fax infrequently.
I just had a bad experience with an HP printer - a big surprise after having a couple of HP printers that worked strong year after year. It was one of those "cheaper than the ink you put in it" $50 printers.
Thanks for the link Mark, good to know...
Plus there are usually good professional reviews on places like CNet.com. The personal reviews, like those on Amazon, tend to be "this is my first printer and I [love it/hate it]." Professional reviews tend to be more thorough and are (usually) based on the reviewer's personal comparisons of different brands/models.
Toms Hardware (I don't know about C|Net) usually does a cost-per-page analysis too.
