    I am sick and tired of printers just dying out on me, i cant count how many printers i went through during my 4 years at college. My epson cx5200 just crapped out on me. What would be the best replacement?

    What are you using it for? If it doesn't have to be color. If not, lasers are a lot more reliable and cheaper to run. I only use my inkjet for things that have to be in color (like photos) or the occasional web page I want to print in color. Everything else goes through the laser.

    I have a HP Laserjet 1200. I think its now the 1300 though. Its never given me any trouble. The nice thing about HP is that you're replacing the drum when you replace the toner cartridge. A lot of low-end lasers don't do this and eventually the drum needs to be replaced and that usually costs almost as much as a new printer.

    HP is my choice for printers for work and home.
