I don't use a printer at work... At home I have an Epson Artisan 837. It's an all-in-one that prints pretty decent photos. I got it so I could print my own photos out for family and friends. It's not too bad for everyday printing either. The scanning feature is nice, as is the copying feature. I've never put the fax to use. It was also really easy to setup on my wireless network. I've been pretty happy with it!
Samsung black&white laser multifunction at home... SCX-4623FW (not sold anymore, but samsung's product page is http://www.samsung.com/us/support/su...ame=SCX-4623FW )
Love it. I think it was $150 at Micro Center a couple years back, on clearance. I have it attached to our home network via WiFi with encryption, once in a blue moon it flakes out (we don't use it that often anyhow) and I have to power off/power it back on, but most of the time it reliably scans & prints over the network on demand. It has an ADF (auto document feeder for scanning) which works well, and the paper tray only takes Letter size (8.5x11") but it has a manual feed in the front that works well.
Has fax features too, never used them. Had it hooked up to our phone line for kicks and once in a while it'd try to auto-answer an incoming call like it thought a fax was coming in. I thought I'd set it up not to do that, but it annoyed my wife a few times so I disconnected its phone wire. Probably best to keep it on a dedicated fax line or plug it up once in a while (if you need it for that at all).
At work we have a gadzillion different types, I've never paid much attention to the models, they just kinda work...
I don't. I left mine behind once in a move, and never found an important enough reason to replace it. On the very odd chances I actually need a hardcopy of something, I just go to a copy shop. That happens rarely more than once every couple of months, and it's always stuff that could've been avoided if the 2nd party wasn't woefully stone aged.
HP color laserjet 8600 Pro. It's technically my father's printer, but we went in 50/50 on it. It's a pretty good machine, I liked its predecessor as well .. we got it in sale years and years back and got this one this year when it crapped out on us finally.
For my scanner though I use a Neat Machine. I actually really, really like that thing and its software.
