Buying Recommendation for Color Multifunction Wireless Laser Printer

Question: Buying Recommendation for Color Multifunction Wireless Laser Printer

I am getting a color multifunction wireless laser printer primarily for a soon-to-be university student, although I am told submitted coursework is now paperless. I am not sure. Still, I might need one for resumes and job applications.
One that is the most economical on consumables, that is, toner: spend more on the printer, less on the consumables, right?
Color: I can do the screen-to-paper color calibration, if necessary
Multifunction: only really need the scanner, not so much the copier (which can be done by scanning and printing, right?) or the fax (21st century and all....maybe I should get JUST the printer, and buy a cheap scanner separately?
wireless: and it's probably not convenient to connect a Cat 5 UTP cable to a wireless router
if I am going to have the scanner, ought to have the document's really convenient
small footprint and not needing a crane to lift it would be nice too
doesn't need its own display...after all, it can be controlled through the desktop/laptop
speed not a factor

Answer: Buying Recommendation for Color Multifunction Wireless Laser Printer

Replying to my own post:

I found a Consumer Reports 2013 Buying Guide, and in the section on printers, they said to stay away from color lasers...that they were not ready for prime time.

So I went with a color inkjet.

Stay intellectually curious, my friends.

Hi everyone,

I am looking to buy an all-in-one colour laser printer. Haven't had one before, so I'm hoping for suggestions??

- Looking to spend around 3 - 400 GBP.

- Would like seperate CMYK toners, rather than just black and 'colour'

- Also something that has good availability of generic or remanufactured toners to keep consumable costs down.

- Wireless would be nice

Any suggestions, or feedback on different manufacturers / models woulld be very gratefully received

Hi,We're a small office services team with 6-8 people typically in the office.I've calculated that we're printing in the region of about 3000 A4 prints per month, and a rough estimate that we are spending about 3200-3500 per year on consumables for the printer (including toner, drums, fuser, transfer belts and paper).We're currently using an OKI MFP 3520 multi-function printer which seems to go through drums, fuser, transfer belts and toner like there's no tomorrow.At what kind of volumes does it become financially viable to have an all-in-one cost-per-print type contract?We want a nice, fast printer with low consumables costs (doesn't everyone?)All advice appreciated.

I work at home and print a whole lot, I mean a lot. I am in the process of printing a few thousand flyers. Though most of the things I print are black and white, there are times when I need to print some color stuff.

My old HP deskjet is slowly but surely giving out on me.

I may even consider a multi-function one if it's not too pricy (that was one thing on the comes with full toner, but after 2000 pages you have to replace $300 for that??

Replacing a WF-7520 with CIS at the office. The ink waste pad is EOL. I know about solutions like Printer Potty, but the WF-7520 also requires clean print head function to be run quite frequently which is very annoying - so would like to buy a good long term replacement.

Budget: | $250, framed by the MF634Cdw -- but could do higher if necessary and cheaper is always better
Country: | USA
Color or black and white: | Color
Laser or ink printer: | Laser (assuming this is lowest cost per page)
New or used: | Either
Multi-function: | Yes: Scan/Copy
Duplex Printing: | Preferred, not mission critical
Home or business: | Business
Printing content: | Primarily standard 8x11 business documents, ability to print the occasional flyer / fancy a plus
Printing frequency: | Variable, WF-7520 reached EOL with ink waste pad in 5 years
Pages per minute : | Don't care
Page size: | Letter. Ability to match WF-7520's paper capabilities a plus.
Device printing from: | PC, MAC
Connection type: | WiFi, Ethernet

Additional details:

The WF-7520 has worked well, except for the fact that the printhead cleaning function periodically needs to be run 5+ times in a row manually to fix bad quality printing and the waste ink pad expiring is a pain that I don't want to deal with again.

Just curious to see what you guys are recommending for networked color laser printers these days.

A client had purchased a Dell 3100cn about 3 years ago, only 18,000 pages and is now blowing black toner all over the inside. Given the low cost for a new unit, my feeling is that these things are basically throwaway: not worth repairing. He came to me for recommendations.

Considering these 2

Dell 3130cn
Low toner cost/cost/page (esp with the high yield cartridges)
kind of leary of Dell based on previous experience...

Xerox Phaser 6280N
Good reviews
Sl higher cost/page

Any input on these 2 or others?

Answer:SMB Color Laser Printer recommendations

We generally only use heavier grade equipment, but based on that. Xerox is garbage, it's just a name, surprisingly Dell makes decent units for the SMB market.

We have one 2145cn in a small private office for the owners, not the most solid machine, but still good. Price is reasonable, toners cost $$$ but for yield vs personal inkjet printers, they are great. Also it has Print/Scan/Copy/Fax, so it's hard to beat that, and the software is easy to setup for small office deployments. This is the smallest machine we own, the rest are 30-40cpm multi-function machines and about 25 high volume printers

Personally, I have an HP Color Laserjet 3600n that is rock-solid reliable and has outstanding output quality with a reasonable cost per page. I got it for 250$ almost a year ago, but I don't know what it would go for now.

I'd definitely recommend anything made by Brother as well, I have an all in one black and white laser by them that has tens of thousands of pages on it without any issues. I believe that they have two models around 300$ at the moment that have a good cost per page and, judging by the demo prints, very reasonable output quality.

At the end of the year I will be buying a new computer. I do a lot of text printing in black and white and I want a laser printer.

I'd like to get a color laser, but I know the toner cartridges are expensive and I'm afraid that if I print out photographs and other things in color, that it will eat the black toner.

Does anyone know if those have duel cartridges? My b/w laser printer at work will print about 6K full sheets of text per cartridge. The b/w cartridge is $180 to replace.

What I'm getting at is I'd like a printer with a separate black toner cartridge and a separate color one. I like to play around w/color, but don't want it costing me black toner. Like if I use up all the color toner - fine - I can live without it, but I need the black.

I don't know if I explained this very well, but if anyone can help, I appreciate your time.

I have been very satisfied with my HP5 LaserJet (black only). With it, I didn't think much about operational costs; but, I got plain lucky and it has turned out to be one of the cheapest per page to operate.

Color lasers are not cheap to operate. So, are there any sites that have reliable data on per-page printing costs for color laser printers?

Answer:Color Laser Printer Advice Needed

The Color LJ5 is cheap to operate now, buy supplies and its under 5 cents a page, I got all the toner bottles (two pair of each), a new drum, the transfer belt (new) and a few other goodies for under $100 So around 10000+ copies (at least) for under $100 not bad if your willing to wait a little longer for a printed page

Also I bought the unit with 30k copies for $100 no shipping

As for "reliable" cost per page given for various Color LJs I would like to see that myself, nobody ever gives real costs, because as we all know, drums NEVER make it through their rated life, toner ratings are optimistic and stuff just happens.

Anyone have a site that lists the real costs of owning a color laser printer?

I am not a big fan of getting ripped off on replacement color laser toner. On most major brand machines (HP, Lexmark, Dell), toner cartridges are encoded with a microchip, making them virtually impossible to rebuild or refill. As anyone who owns one of these brands knows, the cost of a new set of toner units often equals or exceeds the cost of a new printer.

Over the past few years, I have used OKI 5200/5300 series color LED printers. The toner cartridge is seperate from the drum (and therefore easily refillable) and the drum (although programmed to stop working at 15,000 pages) can be reset in about 15 minutes with minor disassembly and a 75 cent fuse, giving it another 15,000 pages of quality output. Using this system, I have reduced print costs by over 60% with no loss of print quality.

Although OKI still uses the seperate cartridges and drums in their newer (5400 and up) series color printers, I'm wondering if anyone has any feedback on if the drums can still be reset by replacing the fuse. Also, are there any other brands of color laser printers not using microchip encoded toner cartridges that can be refilled? (FYI, I've considered solid ink units made by Xerox; however I've read horror stories about entire ink blocks melting in the event of a temporary power loss/restart).

Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated.

I am looking to buy a network ready color laser printer for our group at work and I don't know quite what I am looking for.

The printer will be available to about 20 users. Some of the printing will be semi-high content color images, but the throughput shouldn't be very high -- everyone already has access to black laser printers for common print jobs.

I am looking at the following two printers:

Does anyone have any experience with either one of these printers (or similar models) or is there any reason to prefer HP vs Xerox or vice versa?

The cost isn't really an issue, but if the Xerox printer is as capable, I don't see any reason to spend an extra $500 on the HP printer.


Answer:Network ready color laser printer

Either one is good. I would shop around, due to you may find a better deal with CDW, then somewhere else. Plus CDW will stand behind the product if it ever fails, where as other companies may wash their hands of the sale after 30-60 days.

Hi, I am using a Dell 3130cn Color Laser Printer at my office. Right now the computer is selected as my default printer but it says the printer is offline. I have tried restarting my computer, restarting the printer, troubleshooting via my computer system (Windows 7) and nothing works. At the end of a troubleshooting attempt Windows said the computer wasn't even on! I don't know if there's a connection error between my computer and the printer or what. Everyone else in my office can access the printer from their computer.

I tried contacting Dell Tech support but they said my limited warranty expired in January and that they'd help me for a fee of $20+. Anyone out there know what might be causing my problem and how I can fix it?

Answer:Dell 3130cn Color Laser Printer Offline

CSullivan said:

Right now the computer is selected as my default printer but it says the printer is offline. Click to expand...

What does that mean? The "computer" is not a default printer. The printer itself (ie: Dell 3130) should be selected as the default printer.

CSullivan said:

Again, what does that mean? If the computer isn't on, it wouldn't be able to "tell" you anything.

I can only assume you meant the say the troubleshooting stated the "printer" wasn't powered on.

Also, as you state others can use the printer, is this a network printer?

If it's working for everyone else, and not your computer, then you simply have a config/driver issue. Uninstall any drivers/software for the Dell 3130, remove the printer (config) from the Devices and Printers list (Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Devices and Printers), reboot, and then remap/install the printer.

My networked Brother printer has stopped communicating with my main computer. and refuses to reconnect to it.

My network is based on a TP-Link TD-W8960N Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router, purchased and installed in November 2011. The router has four ports. The connections are:
Port 1: Computer C1, an old i5 desktop running Win7 Pro and now used mainly for backups. It's offline most of the time.
Port 2: Computer C2, an 18-month old-i7 desktop running Win7 Pro. This is my main computer.
Port 3: Disused and apparently faulty. Nothing I've plugged into it will connect to anything else.
Port 4: A 33-month-old Brother HL-4150CDN networked color laser printer.
Until recently I've had no problems with ports 1,2 and 4.

I also use two laptops, wirelessly connected to the network:
L1: An i3 Acer TravelMate running Win7 Pro
L2: An i7 Asus Laptop running Win7 Home Premium

I own an HP CP2025dn color laser printer.

Recently, I had transported the printer to a different location, and it was not long after that when I noticed that the edge of the pages coming out were yellowed. The paper was brand new and going in perfectly white, but down one side of the page, on any page where there was ink within about an inch or so of the side of the page, there was a distracting yellow band that also ran near the edge of the page along side of the contents that were near that side. If I print double-sided, the yellow band runs down the same edge of the page (so right edge on the front page, left edge on the back page).

Here's a picture I took of one page that illustrates what I am talking about: It's a faint yellowing that looks almost like the page has been in the sun too long or something, but as I said, that was a brand new page that went 100% white.

Hi there I just bought a new Samsung printer model no. CLX-3180 series. It is a multifunction color laser printer. The disc that Samsung issued me with for installation is not working. I have attempted to install it by doing what it says:
1. I set up the printer and connected the printer to the wireless router via ethernet cable.
2. I searched using wireless setup option on the disk for the computer on the network. It reported back that it could not find it so I was unable to install it wirelessly as it says it is not connected to the LAN network, which it is.
3. I then plugged it in via USB and attempted to install it via the disc. This did not work so I tried to do it through windows. This worked and I was able to print from the desktop through the USB.

This is all good and well but we have 3 other computers on the network and they can't print!!!

Any help would be much appreciated

We have a netgear wireless router by the way we 4 ethernet ports and attempting to install on Vista. (There is another Vista computer and 2 Macs on the network)

Answer:How can I install new Samsung multifunction printer onto wireless network?

To set up the printer for wireless use you need to assign it an IP address which it will transmit for the PC's in the network to log on to. If the printer does not have its own screen it will need to be connected by cable to a PC in order to do this.

If the setup disc will not run get a replacement as you need to install the printer drivers in all your PC's.

If you cannot replace the disc you will have to go the the Samsung site and download the drivers from there that are for your OS's.

As you now have the printer running off one PC you will need to install the printer drivers on the other PC's and then activate printer sharing. If I new what OS you are using on all the PC's I could give more details.

I have tried to connect the Samsung wirelessly to this "local" network (the router) but it either fails when trying the WPS or it fails when just trying to connect. The IP address seems to always be defaulting back to the one provided by Samsung no matter how I try to update it. I thought maybe it wasn't connecting because of that.

I've read an article on the web that mentions a setting to turn off, but that setting is only updateable via the web interface to the printer. I connected the printer to my laptop with a network cable and can see the printer on the network. I can http to it, but can't get the control panel page. It is acting like it needs to access the internet to download something to do this.

Does anyone know of any way to get to this setup web page locally when you don't have internet service?

I set up the printer (HL-2270DW) following all instructions. It is listed under Devices and Printers with my other printers, but not under Printers. I cannot set it as default printer in Devices and Printers.

When I go to printers -> add new printer -> wireless printer it is found, but it says installation failed when I try to install it. I got no errors following brother's instructions, can connect to the printer settings wirelessly but cannot print.

Any ideas?

I have just purchased the above but the installation has been far more complex than I expected.

Installed from CD using USB connection. There was one error that seemed to come from Windows 7 Pro rather than the install program which stated that PCL had not been installed successfully. Not sure if this is significant?

All other software and utilities on the CD installed OK except for TWAIN instalation but all the references in this seemed to apply to connection over a network rather than local printer via USB.

I have printed successfully from the computer.

Now I want to learn about scanning using the Automatic Document Feeder (Duplex). I initialy want to experiment and scan a multipage document to a multipage pdf file.

The program that came on the CD that would seem to be the one to use is called "Actkey"

When I start this up there are 4 options "Application 1" "Application 2" "Folder" "PC Fax".

I select "Folder" but then get a message "Please check that the device is set to remote PC mode" and can't get any further. What does this mean?

With the information I have provided of my journey so far with this MFP can anyone kindly help. I'm not sure if either of the two problems I had during install are relevant or not but most importantly I want to be able to scan.

Thank you

Answer:OKI MC561 Multifunction Printer help

Have you tried to uninstall and then reinstall it? Make sure when you install the printer that you install the software first before plugging in the usb cable, doing this can have adverse effects on the installation.

I recently purchased an Epson DX5000 multifunction printer.But I am very disappointed in the chipped cartridge system - it must be making Epson millions.I have been using compatibles which of course are cheap enough, but the last colour ones I used weren't recognised, rendering the whole printer unusable, even though I only wanted to print black! This in turn caused delays and inconvenience.Without going down the road of refillables or ciss, or even chip resetters, I really want an economical printer with a decent ink capacity in their cartridges, probably aimed more for business use.But not another Epson!Thanks

Howdy All,
This is not a problem per se, I am seeking information. I want to upgrade my multifunction printer to one that uses separate ink tanks as I always use the blue up first then have to replace the whole tri colour cartridge whilst there is still ink in it. I currently use and am very happy with my Hewlett Packard but have been looking at upgrading and the one I like is $400 australian, a little out of my pocket. In my local computer store, there are Epson multifunctions with separate ink tanks for $170 australian but the store just wants to sell me something and isn't too good at answering questions. The main thing I am trying to find out, with little success or maybe I am not asking the right questions in "searches", is whether this Epson has separate printheads with each ink tank, like the Hewlett Packard does. I once had a Cannon printer that the heads died on and it cost me more than the printer to buy a new set. I was a newbie and the store didn't bother to tell me it would be cheaper to buy a new printer than to buy the print heads. I have since found out that not all MFP's have the print heads changed with each ink tank and some just use a built in set, which means it gets more expensive in the long run when changing things over or if you have print head problems.
Hopefully, some TSG members might be able to help me or point me in the right direction for links to find out my answers!!!
Thanx in advance for any help available.

Hi all. I have a Print server currently that is built in to my router, but it doesn't have USB compatibility. So my setup is like this: cable modem connected to wired router, port 1 of router connected to WAP, port 2 connected to desktop PC, WAP connected to laptop with PCMCIA card and printer connected to router with LPT cable. (port 3 and 4 are free).

I want to puchase a multifunction printer, but the problem with this is that I cannot use it with my current print server built in to my router. I would rather get a wireless router with built in print server, but will the multifunction printer be able to scan on the network as well as print or just print?

The Brother DCP 310CN's review says this...Sharing a printer across a network, whether wired or not, is relatively simple. Unfortunately, sharing a scanner is much trickier. You can't just plug your scanner and share it using Windows. Nor will most print-servers - devices that you use to share printers over a network - allow you share a scanner.

Brother has the answer. Its new multifunction device, the DCP-310CN has an integrated network port. This means you can plug it into your router or hub and share it with all PCs on your home or office network.

If this is true this means that I can plug this multifunction printer into a port on my router, and share it without buying a print server, right? Or does this mean that I have to connect to printer to my wan port (currently has my cable modem on it).

I know this question has been asked many times before I want to purchase a multifunction printer, scanner etc as I'm sick of trying to unclog the print heads on my Cannon i850.I have been looking at the the Lexmark 4550/4850(WiFi)and the HP C4280 both of which have so so reviews on the net, especially the HP. I understand that Lexmark cartridges include the print head as do HP cartridges. Is this correct and what are your opinions on the two devices mentioned and what would be the current advice for a good multifunction device and does the WiFi option on Lexmark printers function well to a laptop in a different part of the house?Many thanks.

Answer:Advice on a good multifunction printer.

Lexmark and HP have the print head in the cartridge, which makes makers original cartridges very expensive. Refilled cartridges from Choice (click here) are very good and much cheaper. This has the advantage that when you fit a new cartridge you have a new print head - or a cleaned and tested one in a refilled cartridge. Epson and Canon printers have the print head built into the printer, so if the printer isn't used for a long time the head can clog. In an Epson replacing the print head would generally cost more than a new printer and so would be uneconomical. I have just bought a Canon MP600R. This has the printhead in the printer, but it's an easily replaceable item (about 45). The MP600R is expensive as inkjet MFDs go (about 150) but it's a superb machine wireless, quiet, fast, duplex and excellent copying quality. I have always considered Lexmark to be cheap and poorly built.

Hi, I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PC connected to a home network with other PCs connected. Additionally, there's a network printer (HP Officejet 6310xi) that available on the network. Now when I had my XP PC on the network, I was able to access the printer's printing, scanning and faxing resources via the control software (HP Solution) which worked fine, but it took a great deal of space and resources. Now I have a Windows 7 system, I really don't want to tie up resources with this control software, however, when I use the device wizard, all I find is the printer resource. I am frustrated with HP's only solution is to install the control program and no other way to scan or fax over the network. Isn't there a way to manually install a network device? I mean, technically, you can manually install a network printer with Windows, but why not a network scanner or network fax machine?

Answer:Manually add a network multifunction printer?

Multifunction devices require specialized drivers to get things working. Sorry, but that's just the price of doing business. You could probably get the printing working, but the scanner and fax won't work at all without the network drivers from HP. You may be able to do some experimenting and uninstall some of the applications and keep the drivers intact; checking the HP site/forum may help - you might get lucky and find someone that's done exactly that.

We are desperately looking for a printer that does the same but finding it difficult to find one - please help! As we're a charity we don't have a huge budget, possibly up to around £150 ish and we don't really need/want anything fancy, so long as it prints, copies, scans and has the option of puting multiple photos onto one sheet of paper without using a PC.

Two essentials on my next MFM will be a straight through feed from back to front, (no paper u-turns) to allow (easier feed) 200gsm, or heavier, paper so I can print Certificates, etc., on heavy paper.
Also 5-6 individual colour ink cartridges, if possible.

Some even have a dedicated bigger capacity Black cartridge dedicated to Black only printing.

Hi All-

Don't know if this is where this should be, but I'll throw it here anyway.

I'm looking into buying a low cost color laser printer for printing simple color things. I already have a Brother HL-2040 B&W laser and a Canon S9000

I basically want it for printing web pages that need to be color to be read (color coded charts, etc.) simple graphics, and small photos that are already part of a document.

Because I already have the best of the photo inkjet world (Canon S9000) I don't need it to be great with the quality. I absolutely would only run photos on the S9000.

Speed's not a biggie either, even 4 ppm is fine with me in color. If I need something big done fast, chances are it's B&W and the Brother can tackle it at 20 ppm.

What I do want is a cheap upfront cost, as I am cheap (300$ give or take some) and as low running costs as possible since I do print a lot, and buy paper by the 10 ream boxes.

While the Brother 2040 would still probably be my primary, I wouldn't mind having a color laser fast enough with low enough B&W running costs to replace it completely either.

Thanks for your input,


One more thing-I'm a big fan of remanufactured toners/toner refills (not the same for ink, but with toner I've yet to see a quality difference in lasers).

Hopefully someone will help. A friend of mine is receiving an error message on his Brother MFC440CN printer: " Unable to change 51". By the way, he can scan, send and receive faxes, but he cannot print. I tried to search this one and couldn't really find anything.
If someone has any comments or suggestions how to solve this issue, it would be very much appreciated.

We have now tried two different color laser printers on our peer to peer network (Small office).

Word Perfect seems to be the problem.

Can print in other apps (Word, webpage, Etc) to this printer but not in Word Perfect .

Word Perfect hangs up and does not print. Word Perfect will print to other printers but not to Color Laser.

Word Perfect support was no help.

Anybody else had this problem? Any suggestions?

im using a laserjet 4m now & will like to upgrade to either color hp3500 or hp3600. I will be printing lots of heavy media, around 210-245gsm, & was informed a machine with a straight thru path will be the best.

hp3500 is an older model but has a rear output door for a straight thru paper path. It states 163 gsm as the higest media weight possible, but been tested to be able to take up to 230 gsm with few jams.

Hp3600 is a new model & is stated to accept 220gsm media but does not have a rear output door for a straight thru path.

Strictly based on the criteria of heavy media usage, which will be better ? & Why did HP reomve the rear output door ? Any chance because the new machines run a straight path already, through its' normal output ? Or can someone recommend any other printer less than US$1000 ?

Much thanks

Answer:HP Color Laser Jet 3600N -printing light

Other than change ink, not much the average person can do.The printer is old. It may be at its end of life.If cost of repair is above one third the cost of a new printer, consider buying a new printer with extended warranty.

My computer is working fine - but I recently purchased a new Samsung ML2570 laser printer that just died when the starter cartridge ran out of toner (or actually when the printer counter hit its predetermined set no. - probably 1000). At least I think that's what happened. The starter cartridges come without fuses. Replacement cartridges or toner refill kits come with fuses that are supposed to reset the counters, so when I refilled the starter cartridge and inserted the fuse that came with the kit, the printer still didn't work. I tried again with two more fuses, with no luck. I don't have a printer jam and all the doors are well-latched before I turn it on. Does anyone have any idea what I should do next to get my printer working again? My email is [email protected]

Regards, and thanks for any help,

A friend, a new silver surfer, has just purchased a laptop and is wanting to get to grips with the internet etc. As the laptop has no fixed abode they want to have a wireless printer, scan copy & print, so they can connect without the problem of a cable each time they want to use it.The Lexmark range seems to be the most reasonable cost wise to meet their budget but before suggesting these to them I would appreciate comments, budget under 100, laptop is Vista Home Basic and wireless enabled.

Answer:Which wireless multifunction

Lexmark are certainly the cheapest, but if your friend also wants quality, then check out the Canon MP600R. It's quite a lot over budget, but you get what you pay for. I've been using one for some time now and not only is it excellent for printing and scanning, it gives a good crisp copy direct from scanner to printer and it even has a card reader built in.
