I have a Brother laser printer* that is finally reaching end-of-life after about 11 years and 115k pages (well, it's about at the end of its second drum, anyway, and the toner cartridges we get have a tendency to be leaky, and the cost of maintaining it is getting prohibitive. The heart of the printer still works.)

So it looks like it's time to get a new printer.

Is Brother still good for laser printers?
If so, what would you recommend from them?
If not, who would you recommend?

Any new printer would need to be able to print at 1200 DPI and connect with an Ethernet cable. Ideally it'd be about as durable as the old printer.


Bonus question: Would it be worth it to get a MFC as well, or is a dedicated printer better?

Do you have any recommendations for a good scanner, if the answer is 'dedicated printer'?

Any new scanner would need to be able to scan transparencies (film), books, and regular documents, and be able to scan at 1200 DPI.



*A HL-6050DN, in case you're curious

I set up my neighbor's HP inkjet. It tried to sign them up for the ink subscription service during the driver installation.

(I said no, 'cause it felt pushy.)
