Really Good Wireless Laser Printers

By | Printers | No Comments


It wasn’t that long ago that I wanted to replace my Canon inkjet printer.  I looked into the costs of these cartridges and vowed to go to a laser printer.  As I was looking, I thought that I should invest in wireless laser printers, not stand alone.  We were recently acquiring a new laptop and I figured this would be the most convenient.

That’s what led me to the Brother HL-2170W wireless laser printer.  I think I paid $150 at the time, as it was on sale.  I love this printer.  It is fast (23ppm) and easy to operate.  If you use the WPS setup, it’s easy to get this printer working wirelessly.  If you don’t do that, hook it up to your router via a wire.  Then you can disconnect and go on your merry way.  Read the directions carefully and you can’t go wrong.  One thing that is a big of a nuisance is the low toner warning.  If this happens to you, simply cover the toner level windows with opaque tape.  This will allow you to print until the toner is really out.  Other than that, I have loved this printer.  Toner lasts forever.

The Samsung ML-2525W Mono wireless laser printer is another good bet.  It will set you back about $110.  It is quiet, does 24ppm, and produces nice prints.  Setup is also pretty easy.  Just hook the wireless laser printer up to your computer and follow the setup.  Once you are done, you are ready to print.

Okay, last one.  The HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn wireless laser printer is yet another good choice.  For $160 you get a duplex wireless laser printer that can do 26 ppm.  Getting it to printer wirelessly is a snap, but toner life length isn’t the greatest.  However, if you need a duplexing printer, this is a good one to get.  While it rests, it is virtually silent.  Printing makes noise, of course, but you will not notice it otherwise.
