So I've been using HP inkjet printers for years. I haven't had any big
problems with these until recently, but it seems the quality of inkjets has
steadily declined over the years. I haven't had problems like I have now. I
have two HP Photosmart 6520s and now the black ink is clogged. I followed
some procedures to unclog it with no success. I will continue working on
it. It is likely I will keep these printers for the document scanning
feature, but it is likely that I will go get a color laser printer.

Ian Primus who fixes printers for a living recommended laser printers over
inkjet even though they tend to be more expensive. Inkjets tend to get
clogged and have issues.

Here are a few that Consumer Reports rates highly:
HP Color LaserJet Pro M452nw printer
Brother HL-L3230CDW printer
Canon Color imageCLASS LBP622Cdw printer

Does anyone recommend any particular models or brands?
