HP series are excellent; a little expensive.

Colour ones are still expensive and not as good as equivalent priced inkjets.

due to lack of funds, I have just bought a Minolta 1300w (Mono) machine.
It's the easiest thing i've ever installed, & results are great.
My personal niggle with it, is the Envelope handling. It tends to crease slightly the ones that I use. i am on the lookout for a different sort that might be more compatable (any idea's out there please ?)
all in all a good machine for the money (about £90 inc)

All good printers. Kyocera are cheapest to run if you intend to do a lot of printing. Epson are high quality if you do a bit less. Samsung are cheap to buy with modest running costs.

All laser printers crease envelopes because they use high temperatures to melt the toner onto the paper. Buy a general purpose inkjet printer like the Epson Stylus C64 click here for envelope printing and occasional colour. Epson inkjets make excellent colour fast prints. Compatible cartridges reduce costs, but if you use a laser printer for bulk printing of text, costs should not be prohibitive.
