    cheap as possible since they tend to break after 2 months no matter what you spend. also if it has wireless connectivity that would be great. thanks.

    You can just get a little Bluetooth dongle for $3 and plug it into the printers USB port. Works just fine with my Canon printer. Fuck paying the $79 they want for the Bluetooth adaptor they offer for it.

    Works pretty slick although it's kinda slow to print since it's over Bluetooth 1.1 but it works. Downside is that you still have to connect via USB to use the scanner and other stuff. I keep the printer in the closet and print to it wirelessly but have a long USB cable for when I need to scan something.
