Windows 7: Buying Recommendation for Color Multifunction Wireless Laser Printer

Buying Recommendation for Color Multifunction Wireless Laser Printer

I am getting a color multifunction wireless laser printer primarily for a soon-to-be university student, although I am told submitted coursework is now paperless. I am not sure. Still, I might need one for resumes and job applications.
  • One that is the most economical on consumables, that is, toner: spend more on the printer, less on the consumables, right?
  • Color: I can do the screen-to-paper color calibration, if necessary
  • Multifunction: only really need the scanner, not so much the copier (which can be done by scanning and printing, right?) or the fax (21st century and all....maybe I should get JUST the printer, and buy a cheap scanner separately?
  • wireless: and it's probably not convenient to connect a Cat 5 UTP cable to a wireless router
  • if I am going to have the scanner, ought to have the document's really convenient
  • small footprint and not needing a crane to lift it would be nice too
  • doesn't need its own display...after all, it can be controlled through the desktop/laptop
  • speed not a factor

Replying to my own post:

I found a Consumer Reports 2013 Buying Guide, and in the section on printers, they said to stay away from color lasers...that they were not ready for prime time.

So I went with a color inkjet.

Stay intellectually curious, my friends.

HP PSC1200 multifunction printer/scanner
The XP driver for this was pretty good for a typical cumbersome driver from HP. The Vista/W7 driver works minimally and the control panels look great but: 1. Normal vs. Fastdraft print selection results in terrible low density quality. 2. Can't change the default printer selection.
