Personal printer for home use......HP Laserjets are great use them at work and home.

Work printer......HP Laserjets with network connections.

Personally I have used HP, Canon, Xerox, Epson, Lexmark and many others.  For overall use I always end up going back to the HP units.

Greetings gogoshar !

Here is a review of the best printers.  It depends on what you are using the printer for.

You really need to elaborate a little.  And with all of them, learn the cost per page.  The less expensive printers run out of ink more quickly and the consumables are much more expensive.  I've seen cost per page vary from $0.005 to $0.10 per page.

One make not so far mentioned is Oki.  

If you are after reliability, good build quality, ease of use and fantastic customer service I recommend Oki.  Not the cheapest, lightest or smallest on the block, but well worth looking at.  

Fantastic customer service?  Out of the many Oki's I've got customers to buy over the years, my one had a fault on delivery (the magenta cartridge wasn't detected).  I rang Oki at 9am.  By midday they had delivered a replacement by point-to-point courier from their office in Slough to West London, and I was up and working.  That was about 18 months ago.  No problems of any description since then, and that has included some heavy duty double-sided printing.  I have not seen a single paper jam message since purchase.

it depends on the use :
-text printing- photo printing
-work load : how much pages per month
-cost per page

i would suggest to use the "help me choose " tool on the HP site - then , once you have decided on the kind of printer, you can look  at the different brands.
