      Well what do you want to print? If it's just black and white documents, then a good mono laser printer is a good choice - preferably one with a duplex unit as standard (most have this now). If you only very occasionally need to print colour documents, then it's not worth buying a colour laser printer because the cost of replacement toners is astronomical - you'd be better with a cheap 'n' cheerful colour inkjet. Just depends what sort of printing you're planning on doing, and in what volumes.

      What is a duplex unit?

      I need to do mostly black and white printing but it's A LOT of printing that I wish to do so I need something that will actually be sturdy and not break like my sh*ty kodak one, if those even exist now a days.

      Sorry, I should have explained. A duplex unit allows you to print on both sides of the paper automatically without having to reload it and print on the other side. It's incredibly useful and saves paper.

      If you're doing a LOT of printing, then a 'home office' style mono laser printer is a good choice. They might be more expensive initially (and they're larger overall, which can be a problem) but should last longer and, importantly, their running costs are likely to be lower. The main running cost is the toner cartridge, and these range from £60 to well over £150. They usually come in two sizes: a standard capacity one which prints about 6,000 copies, and a high capacity one which will do about 10,000 pages. It's always worth doing a quick Amazon search for the historical cost of toner cartridges once you've decided on a printer to like just to check that you're not going to get stung on toner costs. A good quality laser printer will also print at high speed: 25-35 pages per minute is achievable, meaning you're not stuck waiting for large documents to print.

      I've always used HP Laserjet printers and had no problems with them, though some people hate HP. Lexmark and Brother also do good mono printers.

        I have this one, it is easy to set up and simple to use. Plus it prints double sided, which I think is good.
