"Best" is open to interpretation.
I had a Samsung and it croaked after about a year.
A few months ago I purchased this Brother laser printer and I'm quite happy with it:
What I really like is that it prints double-sided which saves a ton of paper.
I second Mr. Lloyd's recommendation for Brother in general, and that laser printer specifically. No complaints. I highly recommend wireless, which it is.
Commonly available on Amazon for < $99, and occasionally available for considerably less than that.
If you ever envision a need for AirPrint, Brother has a line of them as well for not much more money. Brother's OS X support is top notch. Consumables are inexpensive.
Thanks for the opinions, you have given me some areas to look closer at.
The Samsung which I spoke of is wireless and it is also a duplex (double sided printing). Its actually a simplier commercial printer. I am looking for speed and no jamming attributes. Drivers and Macs were a problem in the past with Samsung and a few other brands. I think this will be printer #5 for me, but I have experience with a lot of other printers.
HP makes some good printers but they seem to be expensive to operate. I have had my fill of their ink machines..ha ha.
I just called my cartridge supplier. Here is the prices
Standard 107.0 2000 pages
Long life 128.0 5000 pages
Extra long life 158.0 10,000pages
She will also match my lowest printer price on the printer (299.0) , 4 day delivery
Now I'll investigate HP laser printers.
The manager lady also said she would not reccomend Brother or Epson products. She has seen them all and she knows what all the problems can be. Thanks for the opinions, I would love to hear from others on this topic and i will let you know what I decide in the end with a few details.

I have seen all sorts of managers and know what all the problems can be.
She sells consumables? She must positively adore HP.
