Fuji Xerox DocuPrint P265DW $89.00 or less

 

It is difficult not to be drawn to this printer with its P265DW two-tone design which makes it stand out from the competition. Quality isn’t sacrificed for cost as this laser printer will produce copies at 2,600 x 600 dpi resolution. It’s no slouch either, producing up to 30 ppm on A4-size paper, holding up to 240 pages in the input tray. Add wireless technology to a small and compact unit and this is ideal for students who have limited space.

We also liked the toner conservation feature to reduce ink use.

Sample Review (verified purchase)

Can’t fault it for home use. The genuine (Fuji Xerox) cartridges are a bit expensive but you can still get discounts around. I think some of the issues other reviewers experienced were resolved. I have installed the latest drivers (I am using it from Windows 7 and Windows 10) and have no issues with printing or Wi-Fi.

Print up to 30 ppm (A4)

Wi-Fi Enabled

Brother HL-L2340 $149.00 or less

As a laser printer, this is a neat package with print HL-L2340 quality up to 2400 x600 dpi in monochrome. It is ready to print within 30 seconds of powering up and 8.5 seconds from sleep mode. What we like about this printer the most is the size (365mm x 360mm x 183mm) and wireless function, making it ideal for those with limited space.

We also liked the fact that Brother toner cartridges and Brother ink cartridges will cover between 1,200 and 2,400 pages so you won’t be forever running out of ink at vital times.

5* Great printer, cheap, fast and easy to set up. I bought this printer recently and have been impressed by the cost of ownership, it’s speed, the print quality and the ease of set up. Would recommend.

Brother DCP1510 $149.00 or less

 

Another great and compact little printer from DCP-1510Brother. For a wireless monochrome printer this certainly meets your needs and can operate at speeds of up to 26ppm on A4 paper. Wi-Fi compatible means no need for messy cables (apart from the power one!) and dual-sided printing helps reduce running costs. Crisp sharp printing comes from the 2400 x 600 dpi capability. No waiting for it to warm up either; 17 seconds from start up or 8.5 seconds from standby makes this a dream for those who don’t need a printer running 24/7.

Canon PIXMA MG2960 $34.00 or less

Epson are well known for printers, and this WF2630all-in-one model with 4 separate Epson ink cartridges and Wi-Fi capability, all at under $130.00 is a great buy. Only lightly bigger than some other models, this is still the most compact one in its specific class; the power of this printer and ease of use will more than make up for it. We particularly like the fact you can change each individual Epson ink cartridge as it runs out as seldom do we all use equal amounts of the same colour, especially black!
