I bought my late Dad a Panasonic Laser, it lasted a good few years but eventually the drum needed replacing and it was as much as the printer so its now in the loft.
Lasers are handy for large print runs but I now stick to deskjets for the amount of printing I do like paypal receipts and the odd webpage. Could not justify a laser now.
Most lasers these days have the drum built into the toner cartridge, so it is replaced with the toner. Also lasers have come down a lot in price, you can pick up a monochrome one for about £40, but it is basic. I am not bothered about wireless, my inkjet is wireless and I after it not working as it should I stuck it on USB and I have never used the wireless part since.
I did take a walk to Pc world yesterday and had a look, but they had very few lasers, most was inkjets, my Inkjet works fine, so I do not need a new one.
I am having the same problem with a router, I missed a good deal with a Asus router not so long ago because I could not make up my mind. I had a look at a TP link yesterday, but not sure about it, I was thinking of getting a all in one.
