I have a HP 5740 printer on my network which has worked for over 8 years. It bit the dust finally, and I need a new printer. I also have a HP F-4480 all-in-one scanner, copier and printer but only use it to scan because it uses the ink cartridges way too fast. The HP 5740 uses a black cartridge and a tri-colored cartridge. All I can find out there are all-in-one printers which I don't need and don't want due to the speed they use the ink, and if I find one that is just a printer, it takes four different cartridges and the tri-color are now three different cartridges.

Anyone know of a good cheap home printer, inkjet or deskjet so I'm not buying laser toner cartridges???

That's a shame because the cheapest way to print is to use a laser printer. I have an HP 2600 color laser printer. The original printer was $125 (at Sam's Club). Cartridges are about $75 each (there are 4). But I replace them at the rate of about once every 18 months.

I did recently get a Brother wireless printer for $100. The cartridges are $9 each (also 4). It is a MFP including faxing, and it is wired/wireless. It also includes a document feeder for scanning and is duplexing. (Brother MFC-J625DW)

I like it because I can print from my tablet and phone and can send a scan directly from the printer to the phone/tablet.
