A few weeks back our printer decided it didn’t want to feed paper anymore. It was an All-In-One type inkjet which was handy for scanning and photocopying but took quite awhile if you wanted to print anything over a couple of pages.
So I decided I wanted a laser printer..but I needed to fill a few criteria:
- Tray feed – none of this putting 10 pages in the feeder at the top at a time
- Photocopy function
- Scan function
- Small as possible
- less than $300
So I looked around and came across the Samsung SCX4200
It fit all my criteria and for $199 I’m pretty happy. It’s really small, really quiet, does a decent job at printing, scanning, and photocopying and easily holds 1/2 a reem of paper.
The annoying thing about printers etc. these days is they give you a printer, a “starter cartridge” but no cable! Lucky the cable from the previous printer works. Seriously do they need to cut costs that much they can’t toss in a $10 cable that would cost them bugger all?
