    Hi, I'm new to the forum so I hope my question follows the guidelines of this forum.
    I have no knowledge about printers but I've been interested in buying one for a while and I need advice on models that would suit me. I'm basically looking for the following printer: I need a small and compact monochrome printer for home use. I don't need the printer to come with a build in scanner or additional devices. The printer doesn't have to print fast (I think it's referred to as pages per minute but I'm not sure). The printer is expected to only print black and white text and nothing else. I do not intend on printing a lot of pages every month (I will only use it occasionally). I do insist however on the printer having a wireless connection like WiFi or Bluetooth. And I do want a printer that can be refilled without spending too much money. I don't mind spending a hefty some of money on a refill if it's going to last me for a long time, but from a cursory reading I did it seems the business model today of most printer companies is to sell the printer cheap and make money of selling the refills. While I don't intend on using the printer that much, there might come a day where I'll want to print papers for my studies or some other unexpected thing. My price range is up to 350 USD but I'd prefer something cheaper than 300 USD. I mostly care about the printer being compact, wireless and cheap (per page) to refill.
    I hope my question makes sense. I hope someone can help me.
    Have a great day everybody!
