The deal just keeps getting better on the Brother HL-L2395DW, a compact monochrome laser printer that also scans and copies. It normally sells for $169.99, but for a limited time, Staples has the Brother HL-L2395DW for $74.99 when you boost your cart total to at least $100 (I recommend this box of paper clips for $0.79) and then apply promo code 53834. (To do that, view your cart and click "Apply coupons" before heading to checkout.) Just a few days ago, the printer was down to $84.99, already one of the best deals to date. It's currently $100 at Amazon.

This is a decidedly modern printer, with a touchscreen interface, an auto-duplexer (for double-sided printing) and support for mobile devices and cloud printing. It can also scan directly to cloud services such as Dropbox, Evernote and Google Drive. That's a huge convenience, though my excitement is mitigated by the printer's sole imperfection: It lacks an automatic document feeder (ADF).

That means you can't automatically scan (or copy) a stack of pages. You have to lay them on the flatbed one at a time. I'm sure that's a deal-breaker for some, but if you're mostly just looking for fast monochrome printing and occasional copies, this is a gem of a deal.

Everything else you need to know can be found in Dan Ackerman's effusive Brother HL-L2395DW review. One extra note: Replacement toner cartridges are cheap, especially if you go the OEM route. (Look for TN-730 or TN-760 compatibility.) Here's one for just $16, for example.
