Printer advice, suggestions

So I am thinking of buying a network printer. I currently have a regular printer on my desk and that is a problem not enough room for a 2nd monitor later down the road. I was thinking of buying this printer - HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf CE841A#BGJ MFC / All-In-One Up to 19 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer

It's cheap, has a scanner, is a network printer.

Any tips advice or anything else i should know. Also is a laser printer which is better than ink from what i heard

Well, I have used a laser printer for years at home. While toners are expensive, they last a very long time.

If you use a UPS at home, do not plug a laser printer into the battery side. they pull too much power when they turn on and warm up. HP laser printers are quite reliable.

Yes, laser printers are good. The cartridges used in them are costly but you can easily manage that cost by recycling them. For recycling, you just need to bring your empty cartridge and gave it to the company who do business of recycling it and can get new re-cycled cartridge from them.

Great! Glad to hear it, you did make a good choice with the printer even though the replacements are quite pricey it outweighs spending money to replace the ink cartridges so often!
