It depends how much printing you need it for, so check the 
manufacturer's specs. I've got a Kyocera FS-C5200DN, which is rated as a 
workgroup printer good for 1000s of pages a month. It gets used 
regularly for printing leaflets, brochures, etc in 100s at a time and 
works out considerably cheaper than Staples or other local copy shops 
for that sort of thing - below 2p per page ($0.03) for b&w, below 7p 
($0.11) for colour according to the reviews.

Reasonably fast (except on stuff from the Mac's word processor program 
for some reason), seems reliable but we've only had it about 8 months so 
not long enough to see any long term problems.
