Default Can anybody recommend a front loading printer?

I need a new all in one printer that the paper is loaded from the front. Needs wireless connection also. Can anybody recommend one? Thanks.

I have two HP printers - one inkjet and one laser. Both load paper from front. Both have wireless connectability. As for front loading paper, I think back 20 years and have never had anything but a front loader except for the old dot matrix using roll paper.

All in one means a scanner and copier built in. Material to be copied or scanned probably loads under the lid or on top - but the target paper should be in a front loading tray or drawer. Front may depend on how the machine is positioned on the table.

Do you have some sample machines to consider?

Try this HP8500A all in one unit. It has seperate ink tanks for the colors.
I have the HP7410 which is basically the same as this but which uses
Tricolor ink cartridges and a Black cartridge. The HP8500A was the replacement
for the HP7410 .. go to your local Staples or Office Depot and have a look at it.

It has Duplex, RJ45, Wireless, FAX, Copy and does front load with 2 trays
Also has Scanner and Auto Doc Feeder

And, take a look at this one as well. Paper is loaded from the "front." Printing comes out the "front." Scan and copy docs are placed on top from the front. It has a wireless capability. Very reasonable cost.

That one does not seem to have wireless which the OP does want.

OK - that could be done with a wireless router - but to meet all OP's specs, spend more bucks.

I think that's the same one you picked - but fewer bucks. $272 including shipping.
