I took on a new consulting job which will necessitate me printing documents at home.

I hate home printers, I've avoided owning one for a long long time. Now I need one of these ink eating pieces of shit.

What printer am I going to hate the least?

I'm thinking a laser-jet maybe? I will only need to generate black and white documents.

Try and find a HP laserjet from 1992-97. I have been running my laserjet 3 since 1994. Toner refills come by the gallon for 10 bucks and no DRM. Solid steel frame with high carbon chromed steel guide rails.

Evil bay link. 165 isn't bad considering it will run like a champ forever and toner is practically free.

This man speaks the truth, these will never die.

It is kind of crazy. It started printing on an Amiga 3000d when I got it, went through at least 3 windows 95/98 boxes, and about 5 Linux machines. I have done nothing for repairs minus clean the drum with anti-static wipes.
