I have an Epson R200 for colour printing (and for direct printing CD's) but for my everyday printing i use a Samsung all in one mono laser printer. Quick, quiet and cheap.
I got mine for £49.99 on offer at PC World in May (and I am still on the original toner)
They are clearance now at PC World, and I would be at all surprised to see them cheap over xmas.
Model is Samsung 4100 all in one
