    Wfi Mono Printer recommendations for Uni

    Looking for an A4 wifi mono printer, low running costs and double sided printing to be used at Uni.

    Or should i get colour printer, even though it will mainly be used for printing mono/student notes?

    I'm more familiar with Epson for heavy family home use.

    Advice appreciated.

    ricoh sw211 mono approx £20-£30. Just freecycle it when the toner runs out.

    Do you need a duplex printer to print back to back though ?

    try some of the new customer codes for Groupon might get it cheaper too got mine for 15quid

    Do you really need one? Both my kids are at Uni and they have not required a personal printer in their rooms. They just use to Uni facilities to print from memory stick. One less thing to pack!

    Thanks for suggestion. I've had a look on amazon. Sounds good, but I'm after a wifi one (so will look into that) and would rather get toners or ink cartridges than replace whole printer.

    I just wanted easy double sided printing without messing around with turning paper and refeeding into printer. Its for my kid at uni so the less to do the better.

    They tried that but printer location far away from room in case they need to print something urgently in the evening.

    Iv got this brother mono printer £90 and I get the toner for £11 which prints approx 8000 pages.
    It may seem a expensive outlay to start with, but the savings long term on ink and printing are massive.
    I wanted one that took high yeild toners as thats where the 'True' saving is.

    You're fortunate. :). They've printed lots of stuff at library already but still need to print in their room for out of hours.
