Your original brand, MacOS-friendly, low-cost ink, does a nice job on photo prints (I do not need quality), WiFi and NOT CANON!

HP Color LaserJet Pro 200 M277dw.

The new Mac Pro has up to 30MB of cache inside the processor itself. It's more than HD in my first Mac. In one way or another I'm still out of place.

I avoid Lexmark print products. They went to the Supreme Court and attempted to kill generic ink / toner so they could raise prices. They lost, but after spending millions of dollars on lawyers, tried to push people around. If they want to screw us up so badly, they find one way.

I avoid HP print products. They abused the firmware update process, by distributing a Trojan horse firmware as deactivated generic ink. As people may not use when they heard about this, HP included a 6-month countdown before the generic ink was blocked. After enough public feedback, HP claimed, to create a manual firmware available that people could search. A year later, they blocked the block back on the main update channel. This time without countdown – apply the block immediately.

My usual recommendation is Brother printers lately. They do not fight generics a lot, so generics are plentiful and cheap for most models.

I have a color laser myself, an Oki C332dn that I am pleased with. Tends to fall to around $ 160 around Black Friday. Speed ​​and color quality are excellent. Not as good as an inkjet printer with glossy photo paper, but better than they used to be with pictures. It may take an extra paper tray, if it is something you have.

The toner was modified from previous models (which had dirt-cheap generic toners) and the generics are still catching up. They are about 1/3 of the official toner price and should hit bottom in a year.

It has USB and Gig Ethernet, but the WiFi card is an expensive option. (Version with card is C332dnw hard to find.) Instead, I got a refurb Trendnet AC router for $ 20, flashed it with DD-WRT, and set to client mode. As an external WiFi adapter, it's faster and far more reliable than any built-in WiFi I've seen on a printer.

Brother all the way, but no specific models are recommended. I just want to buy brother.

Canon likes not to fight generics, and I like their attention to detail. Staples has Canon imageCLASS MF634Cd color, dual-sided, wireless, all-in-one laser for $ 209.99 right now. I have no personal experience with this printer, but I really liked all the canons I have owned.

I've had problems where Canon will stop updating drivers.

As a general note: Manufacturers have entered the inkjet printer with laser printers. If you pay less for the printer, you pay more for toner. If you are worried about drivers, you get a printer with Postscript – no drivers are required. All you need is the PPD file. You also want a Network Connector and AirPrint Compatibility . The latter allows you to print from iOS devices without drivers.

For specific brands and models: Oki makes great color lasers that are very compact. The popularized LED printers (which are technically different from laser printers, but not in ways that are relevant here), and their designs are allowed for fast, compact color laser printers. I too love proper duplex printing capacity, I. e. The printer's ability to print on both sides.

The above-mentioned Oki printer marks all the boxes: Postscript 3? Check. Network? Check. AirPrint-compatible? Check.

The only other suggestion I can come up with is: Why do not you see the multifunction model instead? It costs $ 299.

I do not suffer from madness, I enjoy every minute of it.

This is true, but only used on inkjets. The lasers are still second to none. The one I suggested above is a wonderful printer. I bought one for my parents and one of my colleagues at work also has one. They are sturdy, print well and have great support from printing from everything. If all else fails, make a PDF and email to the printer and it will print it. Perfect for guests who just want to print something and not install printers.

Well, they can do it already if they have your e-mail.

There are other solutions if your guests are not trustworthy. You can install an application on your device (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android) that only allows printing if it is on the same network.

Oh … everyone expects crazy crap in their email.

You're a gracious host so I'll go that extra mile.

Well, after reviewing the recommendations, it seems that the ink cost situation is prohibitively expensive (and reliability issues with OEM cartridges are leaking) remains a concern after all these years. And since I do not print it a lot, this is not a cost-effective route for me to go.

I have not had problems with printers that do not work with newer OS versions, but I've seen situations where they do not keep up with what the newest operating system can support.

MX 310 Inkjet Printer All-In There is some sort in that category, but since it came out in 2008, it's quite darn old. And the pretty old drivers are still working with Mojave. The problem I have is that I can print it through my Airport Extreme USB connection, but I can not scan – or fax – that way. OK, that's a limitation, but it's all about the printer's hardware (USB only and not for translating into a network format) than the drivers.
