Hello!

I am considering the purchase of a laser printer for my home office. Ideally, it should be fast, good and cheap. Ok, that won't be possible. Actually, speed is really not my main concern. I'm just tired of having to pay for overpriced ink cartridges for my HP DeskJet printer.

Can someone recommend a decent home office laser printer? Black and white is fine. Should work with Linux, so no Windows-only device, please. Connection via USB is ok, but just an Ethernet interface would be even better.

Thank you very much...

Take a look at Kyocera, we have had them in our office for about 12 years now and they are dirt cheap to run and extremely reliable. We wouldnt look at anything else now.

I like the Dell 1320c Colour Laser. I also have a HP CM1312 here now - fax, copier, scanner. But much pricier.

Thank you for the responses. The Dell being a colour printer sounds good, but as it says in the review, you are unlikely to find the cartridges in the local store.

So, I would then also like to learn more about the Kyocera that was recommended.

But ideally, I would like to be able to just pick up a new cartridge at a store, rather than having to order one. Is Dick Smith the only option for those kinds of things here in New Zealand,  Auckland area? Which other stores could be reommended? And would these also be good places to buy the actual printer, or do you best order them online?

I bought a cheap samsung colour laser printer from pbtech. Toners seemed readily available. So far seems to work really well. I decided to buy laser printer because of ongoing ink costs.

We get ours from Office Supplies but I would think somewhere like Warehouse Stationary etc would have them. Ask the distributor, you can contact most of them via their local website
