Hi,
I'm interested in purchasing a basic HP black & white laser printer. I want to spend about $200.00 Can anyone recommend the best model?

Thanks in advance,
Rachel

You want HP and only $200, the selection isn't huge. You need to check your local papers for sales, etc. or visit any decent online vendor. There are several the only difference being "network" ready which may up the cost slightly, so take that into account, if no network then price is your driving force, pick from the selection you find. Any one of them will suit your needs as B&W laser are pretty robust. Excluding HP, you will find several makers of B&W lasers from Samsung, Minolta, and Brother that are well suited too. You should then check into the "toner" costs for what the consumables will be in pricing.

Check out http://www.newegg.com, which consistently has good sales (below retailer's Office Depot and Staples). I am using an HP LaserJet 1100 A. Its O.K. but for its tendency to jam, which I understand is a common HP problem. Just out of curiosity, why specifically HP? I am looking to purchase another printer and will probably go with another HP only because its text quality is superior.

HP1020 is the way to go.

Sounds like you are looking for exactly the same thing I wanted in a printer. Small size, relatively fast and good quality printing, more efficient with ink than the vast array of inkjets.

When it's cheaper to through out your inkjet printer and buy a new one just to get the new ink cartridges, you know you have the wrong printer. That's why I went laser, and decided on HP from their good reputation. Read some user reviews on the HP 1020 and you'll see what I mean.

Regards,

DoctorRon

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
