Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Question The wife wants a printer......

I don't print off much stuff and the last computer I had, the ink cartridges were damn expensive (it was a HP 4-in-1 printer, scanner, copier, fax). I no longer run a business, nor do I intend to in the future. So, I'm thinking just a simple printer would work for us.

Basically, all it'd be used for is printing off bank statements, a photo now & then and occasional recipes. The wife wants it so we can print stuff off my computer and her tablet. We have Comcast Xfinity cable innermess w/ Wi-Fi.

This is the computer I have:

This is what the wife uses:
https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/tablets.../p/WMD00000425

Any suggestions? Thanks!

no ink .... it uses a toner

How a laser printer works. They work by using a heated wire to positively charge a drum, which is then passed over by a laser that reverses the charge in the areas that it hits. The now-negatively charged areas of the drum represents the image or text that is to be printed.

Yup the damn ink Hunter you ain't kidding $$. I think the companies keep their copiers below cost so they can rip you off on their fits their printer only ink.
Once they purchase the plastic holders for their ink how they hell much could one be costing them what like .15 cents? You almost have to re mortgage your house to buy one from em.
I like mine its an HP works good and I only print a few pages a month.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 All-in-One Wireless Printer, Smart Home Office Productivity, HP Instant Ink, Works with Alexa (1KR57A)

Does it do 'colors'? The reason I ask is, the wife mentioned that she wants to occasionally print out pics of the grandkids, on photo paper.

I use a HP Pro 8600 at the home office and a big Xerox copier, printer at the real office. Ink cartridges is where they make their money but my 8600 has been a workhorse, scans, prints, copies and faxes, color or B&W, pictures come out adequate on high resolution.

better pictures, send them to Walgreens Photo, they are cheap.

The wife picked up a HP DeskJet Plus 4152 yesterday.

So tomorrow, the wife will be busy getting it all set up & running, with my Lenovo computer. Hope it works!

I have a couple flash drives for stuff like that. She wanted a printer so she can print out recipes and stuff like that. She's got a couple 3 ring binders for recipes and craft stuff.

I don't print many things but, when I do, I have a copy of it right then & there.

I bought a Brother HL-L2350DW due to several online tech site recommendations and it has done well for me. Definitely better than some fucking inkjet where the ink dries out after several months, especially the colored ones that I never use, then throws a code that keeps me from printing unless I buy more - a few cartridges and you've paid for a new printer.

Exactly.
Brother laser and it's been printing (B&W) for YEARS from the toner I bought with it.
That's with my kids printing shit for high school and college all the damn time.
Photo or color? like the others said, 87 places you can email to or download to or carry a USB drive into and get them hassle free and cheap enough.
Wireless and networked, there's nothing to not like about it.
"Brother HL-L2360D Series Printer" copied right from my Ctrl+P destination list on my laptop.
Best money I ever spent on a printer and I've beaten enough of them to crumbs with a baseball bat to know.
Cyan my fuKKin arse you muther scratchers......
