What printer should I buy?

by technotrousers / February 22, 2013 3:10 AM PST

Hi, I am looking to buy a printer and I'm overwhelmed with all of the options! The most important things to me are:
- a low cost / page (ink cost) / low upkeep costs
- auto duplexing
- I would mostly be printing b/w text but would prefer to have a decent color printing quality, too (Or perhaps, I shouldn't expect that, and that's when I should go to Kinkos)
- simple machine ; no expensive replacement parts, etc.
- reliable customer service

My budget is 200$.
Any advice / suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I ask my fellow moderators about a printer and a few nodded to the Canon mx870. Check if it does all you want. Mine is about 2 years old now.

However, all printers of this ilk don't have repair parts. Maybe you need a reminder?
