OK, so my HP PSC 1210 has been erroring on me, probably because I never print with it and the ink and heads are dried out. Prices are such that a laser printer makes more sense with its reduced maintenance-use needs.

Won't buy without:
Win 7 x64 compatibility
Scanner and copier functionality
USB port (probably a given but a dealbreaker if it's missing)

Would be nice to have, highest priority to lowest:
Linux compatibility

Used is preferable because I'm, uh, value-oriented, so feel free to recommend what you currently have.

Whichever printers you end up looking at, before making your purchase you might want to check with sites like to see if they have alternative cartridges and/or toner for that printer.

That kind of resource can substantially reduce your supplies costs. Sometimes by 50% and more. I had a chance to buy a heavily discounted new $400 color laser printer for $100, but the toner replacement cartridges were $100 each (and it took 4 of them). I opted to not buy it after being unable to find any place that carried alternative supplies at a reasonable price.

Some also have imaging drum alternatives (which "wear" out eventually).

I've been using alternative toner refills for printers and copiers from that site for years now without a single problem. Saved a lot of money.

I have no personal or financial interest in it's just a site with which I've had good results and used as an example.

edit to add:
BTW, Over the years I've used Lexmark, Sharp, Canon, Okidata, HP, and Mita laser printers. I've been most satisfied with the output quality/consistency, reliability/paper-handling, and software/functionality of Lexmark.
