Help finding a laser printer?

We need to replace our old printer and want to get a wireless laser printer that duplexes. Colour would be nice but isn't a must.

Any ideas?

Look for a Brother or Canon All in one laser printer. Those are usually easy to buy third party toner for . If they got " DW" at the end of the model its got Duplex and Wireless.

The Brother HL-L2370DW had everything that I was looking for in an inexpensive, duplexing laser printer that can print from a mobile device.

hi there,
looking for a printer. Any current deals?
My number1 priority is reliability. second is decently priced refill cartridge that does not brake the bank.
can wait for a month or so for a good deal. Can spend approx 250$

or should I just increase my bedget and buy this HP LaserJet Pro M428dw.

on Costco.ca it is $349.. Staple is selling for $379 . regular price is $479.
does anyne knows how much a refill cartidge cost for this printer.

Thanks

I’m a big fan of the brother Canada refurbs. I’ve bought many of them and never had an issue. Most of them have had less than 20 pages printed on them.

Thanks, I am so confused lol..
now I am thinking why not increase budget and buy colour laser.. although color print requirement is very less...
brother canada can give 15% off on first order for signing up so this following printer at 15% off , not sure if it is value deal.

but colour means more ink cost over long run.. does the ink dry if not used in laser printers? lets say 20 or so color prints per month and rest black and white..
the toner is costing approx 100$ for each color..

Anybody seen a WiFi laser printer with 5Ghz and WPA3 support?
Whenever someone asks a question that starts with "Why do they..." or "Why don't they...", the answer is always a) money, b) stupidity, or c) both.

For Laser printer the toner is just powder so it doesn't dry out like inkjets. It might degrade over a long period of time like years/decades but shouldn't present a problem with your planned usage level. Consider 3rd party toners. they're like $30-40 for Brother printers. I've bought 3rd party toners for my Brother AIO in the office and it's been fine for black and white text documents. Obviously color images might be a little different, but won't hurt to try. :)
