Any recommendations for a home light-duty laser printer with a feed scanner and wireless support? I'd rather not have a bed scanner since I'm doing legal size stuff and the footprint for those tends to be huge.

Thinking about the Samsung M2070FW to replace my current dumb-as-rocks Samsung B/W laser but the paper feed on that one has been iffy the whole time.

I ended up grabbing DCPL2550DW because it has automatic duplexing in addition to the feed scanner. I like it very much. If you are tight on space and using legal-sized paper, be aware that you have to open up the back of the tray so it protrudes out the back and takes up a couple extra inches that aren't in the standard dimensions.

inkjets, especially the ones that can do good photo prints, have a high cost of ownership and are extremely finicky. I'd go with a cheap brother/samsung/whatever b-w laser and do the photos at kinkos or your grocery store photo kiosk and let them deal with the maintenance headache for the occasions you want high quality prints

Maybe a dumb question, but you tried new paper right? Stuff that sits around for a while and starts picking up too much humidity can start having jamming/feed issues

If I buy something old but sturdy/enterprise with a JetDirect like a Color Laserjet 5550dn or 4600dtn can I run some software to also offer it up as an AirPrint device?

Something like this should work:

I've also seen windows software you can run to present a shared printer to the network as an airprint target. Mount the printer over IP and the software handles the mdns broadcasts to the local network to show the print target.
