As soon as I get my taxes back I am going to be getting us a printer to print stuff off for the kiddos to do. What printer would you recommend? I am looking for something that is all-in-one (printer, scanner, copier) and wireless would be awesome!!! Thank you ladies.

    I have a cannon that is an all in one, but it is so old that I can't find the ink cartridges easily unless I want recycled ones. So if you want a long living one I can tell you the cannon has lasted longer then all my other printers did.

    I just bought the Kodak hero 4.2. It's awesome! I've printed off around 300 pages (both b&w and color) on the cartridges that came with it and they are still half full. I love it. It's a all in one and wireless :)

    I cannot find it anywhere!!! I've been doing research and looking up reviews on printers then I remembered this post so I looked the Kodak up and there isn't anyone selling it lol

    Do not get Lexmark you can't refill the cartridges.

    I have an HP.  The cartridges aren't too expensive (black ink is like $12.99 and color is $15 I believe).  I like it. I have had it for about a little over 2 years now and I have no need for a new one yet.  

    I hated my old Lexmark printer.  There was a seperate cartarage for each color so whenever you needed new ink (black and color) you ended up spending almost $70.  WAY too expensive for me.  Especially with as much as I print!

    I've been looking at HP and all I've found are the ones with the multiple color cartridges and the reviews all say the paper jams.

    I have never had a paper jam in the 2 years I have had it.  I bought it during a black friday sale at Walmart.  I have the HP Deskjet 3050 j610 series.  I love it :)

    I had an HP and "upgraded" to a kodak.  The HP was pretty great, but I don't think it was wireless (funny that I can't remember, lol).  I like the kodak a lot, it prints great.  Once in a while it refuses to connect wirelessly with the computer and I have to go through the whole set up thing again, that gets annoying when I need to print something now! lol.  Also, I feel like it uses ink pretty fast and the ink is average cost but feels expensive.  I guess it feels expensive because I get it at Sam's Club so either 3 black or 2 color cartridges for around $35, so when I buy both it seems so expensive.  And if I buy both, I then have 5 cartridges and it lasts me about 4 months-but I'm not hsing yet-so I would say cut that in half probably if I was printing lots of work at home for them.
