If not appropriate please delete. I will be shopping for a new wireless office printer over the next couple months. If I need to stretch this in relationship to security I guess I could say that some of the reviews on Amazon say that some printer apps on a certain brand I’m currently using have had incidences of being hacked and had fake “tech support” try to contact them through the printer screen.
Since it seems that there are many professionals on the forum, I was hoping to get some suggestions. I currently have an older laser printer with the touchscreen “shifting” the touch points so that I can’t use most of the functions. Their support forums list a few other users with this issue and the “reset” fixes and “firmware” fix suggestions from the official reps don’t fix the issue for anyone. Unfortunately, the controls for color copies, contrast, etc. require touch screen manipulation.
I use this printer to print and/or copy contracts and other legal documents (sometimes with pics; often in color), as well as some scanning. Also, I really need to be able to print things from my phone (Android) via WiFi, computer via Wifi, as well as being able to e-mail documents to my printer (e.g. via HP account) for printing at the office when I am traveling… both are important. BTW, I think Google is dicontinuing it’s Cloud Print services.
Also important are a decent size paper loading tray and being able to fit up to 30 (50 preferred) pages into the auto sheet feeder for copying multi-page documents. I am looking for something under $300. I usually print around 20 pages/month, but during tax season it could easily get to 200-300 pages/month.
Laser printer is preferred, unless other professionals here tell me that inkjets are fine for contracts. I definitely want a brand that has refill cartridges available at the big name office stores and/or BB. I currently spend around $200 to refill all of the laser cartidges (about once every 2 years) and I would prefer not to go over that if possible.
