I am looking for an office printer that is capable of 11x17 media size. Preferably laser as well as color. I'm looking for something low maintenance, durable, long lasting, and relatively inexpensive for ink and toners. I have no budget for the machine.  If anyone is able to give suggestions, it would be much appreciated to include a variety of pros and cons.

    If you provide more details on how it will be used we can make a better suggestion. Will this be a shared office printer? Does it need scanning, copying or faxing abilities? What do you anticipate the monthly volume of pages of printed material? Some printer are much more ink efficient.

    It will be a shared printer, the primary need is the 11x17 media capability, copying ability is preferred. The monthly volume I'm not sure exactly but will most likely be hefty. Price of the machine isn't a problem but ink/toner price should be considered. Lastly laser jet is most preferred.

    In my experience the HP line of printers are more durable but do eat through ink/toner more quickly. We have a few Epson models that seem to get a lot more mileage out of the ink/toner. Check out this link for a top 5 review

    I appreciate it! Any info on Lexmark? I've seen some really good feed back on certain ones.

    I have owned a few Lexmark printers personally, never had a problem with any of them. They were affordable as well. It seems like for most home users a new printer is not much more that the cost of buying all new ink for an old printer. Thus a constant recycling of upgrades. I was told buy an insider that the ink/toner that comes with a printer is only about 30-40 percent full. The reason is if the printer get returned for some reason, a full cartridge is not wasted. Not sure if that same logic hold up to printers more designed for an office setting.
