Printer is used for my home office and also by my kids for school and uwi projects.

No complaints at all

Paid about $800.00 for it at the time.


The dodo brain in price smart told me that printed black only.....else i would have picked one up Friday self

To me HP ink is available in many places, stationary stores, Pricesmart, book stores, electronic stores etc
I can’t remember seeing Canon cartridges anywhere locally.

i have a canon inkjet/scanner combo and it works pretty well. black cartridge is like 150 and colour 200 or so. hp printers suck and are over priced. i shipped the printer here but the ink is mostly common so its not too much of an issue to find it.

You're welcome

was looking at this exact one today

Massy said the m477fdw is ~$6000 and they should have in stock

but that's a lil above my budget for this printer, so I requested a quote for the m277fdw that you posted here - should get a quote tomorrow.

The wizz has quite a few including the epson ecotank for 3k...circuit zone also had quite a few of the HP LaserJet.

I think the eco tank was 2200.......

In yesterday's newspaper, the Wizz advertised some warehouse clearance sale at their branch in Point Lisas. You may get a good deal on a printer at that sale.

Op, my 2 cents is to not worry too much about the initial cost of the printer but focus more on the operating cost. So try to estimate how much pages you might print in say a month. Look at the manufacturer's suggested yields per cartridge and work out how much you may spend in ink or toner per month or per year. Just make sure to buy a printer that gives you all the features you need and with a manufacturer's recommended monthly page volume that exceeds your estimate of your actual monthly page volume.

I haven't used an inkjet in a long time. Think the last one I used was a HP Deskjet 660c. I recall back in those days the ink would not be fully dry immediately after printing. Sometimes if you touched the printed area as soon as it came out the printer it would feel a bit damp. Can anyone tell me if the current HP inkjet printers such as their Pagewide and Officejet printers suffer from similar problems? I figure the technology should have advanced such that this is no longer a problem but I'd like to be sure before I buy

Ended up getting the HP M281fdw for the office

Thanks for the suggestion @88sins

Bought it from Massy Technologies InfoCom.

I could have gotten it slightly cheaper elsewhere but Massy offers a great warranty locally and they are the authorized HP agents. Plus it was delivered for free.

What size?

If it's photo size 4x6 prints check out the Canon SELPHY or other dye sublimation/heat transfer photo printers.
The quality is far far better than inkjet and lasts much much longer.

If it's light usage, the all-in-one HPs are PriceSmart should work for you. Heavier usage, look into the color lasers, but costs will go notably up for that.

PriceSmart is a good bet because of the warranty. SuperTechTT also has decent customer service. Never buy anything from The Wizz that needs warranty coverage. Trying to get faulty items returned or replaced there is a nightmare, the management at Wizz are some unscrupulous characters.

Bumping this thread.

What kind and where would I get a decent colour laser printer for small office use? It's needed soon so buying online is not an option.
Looking at about $3k.
