Not disagreeing with lt_shiro, but one area that the laser printer still beats out the inkjets is in the overall "lifespan" of the toner/cartridges. Because most laser printer toner cartridges use some form of powder, it doesn't dry out as often as an ink cartridge would. (I don't know whether or not the inkjet manufacturers have stopped with the shenanigans over artificially shortening the lifespan of their cartridges.) Then again, if you're printing at least three times a week, then it's a wash.
Canon, HP, and Epson are three companies that make good inkjet printers. Historically, Canon and Epson make excellent photo printers. While HP has been the unofficial standard for laser printers, Samsung and Brother are also good brands.
tn-430, $50, rated 3000 pages (if your question was directed
at my posting). Though as I mentioned, it may actually
last 5000...on that MFC there is a "out of toner" 2nd alarm
which I think halts printing.
