I have an Acer Aspire 5810TZG laptop and need to upgrade my cranky printer to something that doesn't need a cup of tea and a Hob-Nob before it will consider doing any work.
I obviously need something compatible, wi-fi but with option for mains connection too, and to function as copier and fax.

Hi Suzi, Jul 18, 2010

I'm very satisfied with my Lexmark Prospect Pro205. Relatively low printing cost, very low energy consumption in standby mode. (Important if you use it as a fax). It is Wifi printer, fax, copier and scanner. No problems till now.

About wi-fi peripherals Jul 19, 2010

Good evening,
with regard to the subject of this forum, I would like to add a hint: when purchasing a multi-function printer (i.e. that works as printer, copier and fax) laser is much better (in matters of cost savings) rather than ink-jet (of course it depends on the use also); a laser printer is more durable and requires very low maintenance if compare to ink-jet
Have a nice week

Laser, definitely Jul 19, 2010

Ink cartridges are extremely expensive long term. You could some research and calculate the price you need to pay per page for each printer (see printer specifications).

Btw, I think Lexmark has a good choice: you might want to see their duplex printers.

Price of toner Aug 18, 2010

I am fed up paying more than £50 for toner, more or less every month. I have an HP laser printer (P1005) which is fine, but I find the cost per page extortionate.

I calculated that it was double what a friend is paying per page using a Kodak all in one ink-jet printer. But I only want a B/W printer for my business, don't need the other bells and whistles.

I will check out the Lexmark that someone has suggested.


Just looked at the price of Lexmark cartridges - the printing cost is 4p+ per page!!

With the Kodak all-in-one it's 0.0156p per page, and with the HP printer it's 0.036!
