New wireless printer

New wireless printer

Looking for a good wireless laser printer that's compatible with OS 10.6 and Win7.  Have had good luck with HP 2600n in the past but it is old and not wireless.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

RE: New wireless printer

I recently purchased a HP4500 Officejet, 4 way.   I am still uncertain as to how happy I am with it.   It is not laser.  It is wireless, works in my home network (as printer)with my desktop (windows 7) and my laptop (vista).  Is not working as a wireless scanner yet.  I have not tried out the fax feature yet.   Uses a lot of ink.   I get occasional wire jams.  Got it cheap, less than $100.00.  Would not recommend it for anything other than occasional use.   Good luck

RE: New wireless printer

HP makes wireless adapters for many of its printers.

Although, once again, not a color laser, I have had FANTASTIC luck and much happiness with my PhotoSmart C8180.

It has ethernet, wireless, and bluetooth.  I can print a picture over bluetooth from my iPhone.  I can print directly from camera cards and so forth.  It has a built-in LightScribe DVD recorder, which will allow you to copy from your camera card to a CD-R or DVD-R.  Windows sees the card readers and DVD as additional shared drives on the network.

Photos are amazing, print speed is adequate (once it gets started).  It has a paper tray for 8.5x11 as well as a 4x6 photo paper tray.

A complete set of cartridges (it uses 6) including 150 sheets of photo paper is like $35-$40.  And it uses individual cartridges for each color, so there's no ink waste from traditional "tri-color" cartridges.

I know it's not a laser, which is one of your pre-requisites; but between my B/W LaserJet 2200D and this C8180, I have all the printing I could ever need, and SO much functionality....



Just my 2¢
