    My HP Laserjet III died today and the shop said that a circuit board failed. Repair would cost $150-$200 and they said not to do it. Not worth it when newer printers are cheap.

    They have several used and rebuilt printers (bankrupt stock and end of lease machines) available and I trust them. Have bought toner from them for 10-15 years.

    They want about $350 for a used 2100 or 2200 series HP laser printer (50,000 copies on one of them) and have others available as well. Newegg has some that look comparable for about the same price new (I want to paper trays).

    It has been so many years since I bought a printer that it is hard to know what to get. I use it at home and probably print 20-30 pages a week.

    I like HP because they seem to last forever. Bought my laserjet III in 1992 and have not had any problems until now.

    Any advice?

    HP's are fine. Brothers are also good, but their drums need to be replaced. I guess you just need to get one that has two trays..? I'm not sure what else to say, except don't buy a used one if you can get a new one for the same price. At 20-30 pages a week, it would be hard to find a bad laser printer :)
