I've had several laser printers over the years and all but one of them is still running - a Brother that I gave to a coworker; an old Lexmark (back from when they were built in the USA, sold for parts after the rollers gummed up), Canon D420 Image Class - bought 3 of them for $99 each and kept 1 for me and gave the others as gifts; and my current office printer is a Lexmark X464 MFC.

For a little printer that was relatively cheap the Brother wins.  I printed close to 50,000 pages before giving it away.  The best value for price has been the Canons.  For longevity, the big Lexys.

For cost per page the winner was Lexmark, with OEM toner and a sharp eye for paper on sale I have a CPP of <$0.06 double sided.

Another vote for the Brother HL 2270 if you only want B & W.. Does duplex copies and wireless. I have owned this printer for probably almost 10 years years and it is still going strong. Cartridges are cheap compared to other types of printers. Can't say enough about it.

I need a new laser printer. I don't print that much and don't need speed or super resolution.  I just want something that is not a total piece of crap and might last more than 2 years. 8.5 x 11 in. paper. USB is fine, network a plus. Budget is < ~$300. Many thanks for any of your experiences.

Ive repaired printers for over 20 years.  HP laser.  Your good to go.
Hp Image drum/toner and waste toner all fit in that cartridge.  Other brands have a toner cartridge, an image drum and a waste toner cup. 

This model will work great for you
HP LaserJet Pro M402dw
