Wireless printer suggestions??

I need a wireless printer, preferably small, inexpensive, and one that won't kill me on ink costs.  It doesn't have to copy, fax, or anything else.  Just print.  :)

Suggestions??

My main printer/scan/copy/fax is downstairs for my business, and it's a big guy, so I would like to have a simple one up here by the iMac.

We get off brand ink on Amazon.com in bulk and it works GREAT. I print a lot due to couponing and homeschool. I read the reviews carefully before buying and I am glad I made the purchase. 

Our wireless printer is a Brother MFC-255CW I really like it. ( although our model is an all in one and you said you don't need it ) The brother brand is one I would trust though.

I don't think I've ever had a brother.  All mine are HP and the ink is KILLING ME!  I have also never tried bulk ink off Amazon, I'll look into that one for sure!  

The stupid printer I have takes 5 or 6 cartridges - all different colors.  If one color is out, it won't print.  It also "expires" ink and won't print once one is expired.  It's a bunch of... it stinks.  :)

Thanks for the suggestions!

I agree with the Brother ones, although our current one is an HP. We got a super good deal on it last year, which is the only reason we bought HP.

Mine is an hp too. I'm debating on getting another brand. This one sucks down the ink FAST. With 5-6 cartridges at $11 each, it's expensive. And I seriously have to replace one every other week just about.

I would like to get a wireless printer also.  Right now we have an HP and it's just ok IMO and it's not wireless.

 We have and love our Canon MG5220. The best part for me is Duplex printing!!!! Front and back... just love it.

We ordered ink for $6 online, but don't remember the site. The ink we got was G&G NP-C-0225bk.
