Any recommendation for Printers?

Looking for a coloured laser printer that has wireless function, able to print 2 sides and affordable ink replacement.

Wondering if there is any preferred brand to get. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Actually if you are looking at cost effective, you should look at ink tank system that are offered by Epson.

I am currently using an ink tank system by epson that has been with me for 5 years and still going strong.

For ink wise for me, till now, i have only spend $50 for 2 bottle of black ink, 1 set of color ink bottle(Mageda, blue and yellow)

I will recommend Epson ink tank system. I move to Epson few years back as we use the printer at home frequently and the ink tank system is very economical.

Got the tank system one long time ago. Didn't like it as the results were *fuzzy*. Changed it for a laser bnw one and used it only for pictures.

I heard laser printer is better for printing text, but i'm wandering how much does the toner cost. Also, laser printers are so much bigger than inkjets

Any recommendations for AIO printers that can print good photos as well?
Mostly family photos printing only.
If wireless and print direct from HP will be good

Well, it depends on the volume you're printing.

Samsung and HP have really compact ones.

If you print A LOT and need to save on running costs, dun mind inkjet-style output, go for Ink Tank printers.

If quality is top concern, get a Laser.

Inkjets can rival lasers these days, but Laser's toner-based prints still have a slight edge in output and crispness. However, they are not that great in handling banding and tones - at least for the affordable series that we've tested. Inkjets do a better job at this.

It's surprisingly good.

Of course it's only as good as the paper type used, but from what I've seen at their last ink tank printer launch - just using plain A4 paper, the color prints were surprisingly good.

how is the photo printing quality from Epson ink tank?

Yup agreed. I bought an Epson ink-style system and it's fantastic. Text is good and the picture prints are fantastic.
