Can you recommend a printer?

I need to buy a new printer I had a brother one but not that impressed with it. I would like a printer it dosen't need to be fancy but I got sick of it not working if just one color ink cartridge was empty. I am happy to just print in black and not color.

Basic brother laser printer. Ive had one for about two years now and it is a great basic printer. Good printing speed and very low cost. I paid $150 for it (only because harvy norman screwed up the price sticker) and it got over a year on the original toner. Toners can be more reliably refilled than ink printers and the toner is very cheap. It came with a 1500 page cartridge originally and the replacement cost under $100 and it is good for 2500 pages.

HP have some small lasers too but i cant speak for them. My Brother is a HL-2040 which has been superseded now

I'm happy with our Epson TX200. Was cheap too.

I just had a look on the brother site, the 2140 is the new model. It had just came out when i bought mine and the difference is mainly a larger print buffer which means it can store more in its queue.

If it is like the MP250, there are no third-party ink refills for it (when I last looked a few months ago.)
