Printer shopping

Ugh, spent half the day going through multifunction printer spec sheets and reviews. The church needs a new one. I brought color units into the mix today but I think we will not go that way, because the operational cost more than doubles even if we never use the color and print only in black. I told them if they wanted a run of color bulletins, print to PDF and email it to me and I'd print it at home.

In the end I decided on the Brother MFC-8890dw with an add-on paper tray. With toner refills, operational costs are about 0.2 cents per page. I wish the standby current was a little lower (18 watts) but it has an ADF with duplex scanning and full duplex printing and all the other standard junk and excellent reviews, except it apparently isn't great at envelopes, but I didn't find any printers that people said were that didn't also have horrible reviews in other areas.

This is exhausting.
