Sometimes I see nice looking HP wireless that would cost $100 or more for a refurb and $300 new on sale for $25. Bring some paper along, plug it in, and test? (if it needs ink it should tell you, I picked up a Brother that needed a cyan for $10'at Cartridge World, Office Max wanted to sell a set of colors at $50)
What would be the best printer apps? Ipad and android? (the software part of the question.). Or will it work with native functions?
An alternative would be a laptop and bring an ethernet cable. A smidgen more awkward, and you likely get ok.
Or you could just take the risk.and plunge.
Granted, there is a lot to be said for buying new on sale from BestBuy, MicroCenter, Costco,etc. And even paying for an extended store warranty. When it breaks 2 years later, they may even give you a new one. They do sell printers cheap, hoping for your ink purchases later.
