    Which wireless printer doesn't suck ?

    I'm in need of replacement for home use. My Epson NX 430 wireless, never in my opinion worked wireless that well, sometimes not connecting. Now with printing problems, such as a page copy on the scanner takes forever. If a color cartridge goes empty no printing is allowed, even black.

    So started researching other brands and models. Can't believe printer reviews that are posted. Would be easier to buy a new tractor than a printer. Looked into a wireless HP Envy 5660 e all in one model. All the reviews are wonderful. Too good to be true.

    Wondering if anyone has any experience with this product. Or what printer is not horrible on ink consumption. Is reliable with dependable wireless connection, good easy to use features. It doesn't need to also bake bread.what are you using you could recommend. Thanks, dan

    I went with a wireless laser printer for my everyday printing tasks. I used to use my photo printer but chewed up too much ink just for printing off pages from the internet and stuff. Our cheapie Brother laser printer is used everyday - my wife prints shipping labels and packing lists plus other stuff every day and the toner lasts just about 2 years.

    We just bought the HP 5660. It was super easy to setup and use. For only having it a few days, I'd give it a review.

    I have a Cannon MP495. It works well enough for a home printer but I wouldn't recommend it for heavier office type use. Never had any problems with it connecting to the house wireless network and ink seems to be a little bit cheaper than other brands I've owned.

    We have the Canon MG6220 wireless. Not a bad home printer, it connects okay but I think it really has to be next to the router if possible which this one is. It also will shut down if one ink cartridge is empty, kind of a pain but I think most of them are like that. Ink is expensive but they all are I think.

    We have a HP office jet 8000. I got it for several reasons.

    1. It duplexes, which saves on paper.

    2. It has a wired Internet as well as wireless.

    I find a wired connection has better reliability to wireless. We have a wireless cannon that is about pointless. If you want to print you have to physically turn the printer on first. With the HP on a wired network by the time I get to the printer it is done printing.

    One other tip is to use a static IP address for the printer either by setting it in the printer or using the MAC address and DHCP to assign the same IP all of the time.

    If I were to do it again I would look for a laser with the same features as the HP we have now.

    The HP 8 series is very good at coming on when connected via WIFI. We never have an issue scanning or printing

    I'll second giving the printer a static IP
