Epson has a line of printers specifically designed to be refilled - called the ecotank/supertank line - they're a bit pricier than 'regular' printers (which are absurdly cheap cause they're selling you the ink at a markup) but they are essentially CIS printers with external ink tanks. Since you arn't popping out a tank designed to slowly drip ink, its a lot ...
We ended up going to a local PC store today so my mother could physically examine the printers. I will give a brief run down of the printers we looked at, it may help others with their choice.
My mother had already decided that having an SD card was now a must rather than a nice to have.
The store had a decent range of HP MFP's however none of them had ...

I have the Canon MX340 Series Printer.
I've been using ths printer for roughly 3-4 years and it's been consistently reliable. According to this review, it comes for only $99, which is incredibly cheap. Ink is also really cheap: a two-cartridge pack comes for around $60.
The printer is accessible over USB, as well as Wi-Fi
It has Copy/Scan capabilities
I recommend a HP printer, specifically the HP LaserJet Pro M130nw. Amazon claims to sell it for $99 once you add to cart.
HP has always had the best support on Linux , and the current open source drivers – which are in the default Ubuntu repository (main),* and may even be installed by default^ – claim full support for the M130 series [...
If you are willing to adjust your price slightly, I recommend the HP OfficeJet Pro 8720. It won The Wirecutter's best all in one printer recommendation in September 2016.
Among the many features listed on Amazon:
Fast two-sided copying and scanning: Breeze through multipage documents with one-pass two-sided scanning and a 50-page automatic document ...
I am going to give three options here. I am not sure if they will hit the budget you are looking for but they are all GREAT scanners. I personally own the IX500 and it is the best scanner I have ever owned. This includes being better than commercial scanners that cost upwards of $5000.
Fujitsu iX500 @ Amazon $415.93
Excellent scanner that includes color ...
They are all various ways of referring to the same process, which a Xerox engineer invented (hence the name of their company): Xerography.
HowStuffWorks has a decent overview of the process here.
So, to directly answer your question, they all use the same printing technology.
Printer companies specifically avoid doing this because their margin only comes from ink sales. They usually lose money on the printer itself. This is true of most accessory-based consumer electronics; Microsoft loses money on every X-Box line of product sold, and makes a killing on licensing developers to make its games and online marketplace surcharges. ...
I would go with a laser printer. You can get black/white or color laser printers. The color laser printers are true laser printers. They contain 4 toner cartridges. Many laser printers are available as part of a multi-function device, where you can print, scan and fax.
Now.... some laser printers are vastly cheaper to operate than others. For example, ...
After further research using the correct search terms (and digging deeper on each device as neither Amazon or Newegg are that good at listing all relevant information, I have come up with this one.
Epson WorkForce WF-3620 WiFi Direct All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer, Copier, Scanner $83.07 @ Amazon.com
Has everything you asked for, and is under budget.
Size. The smaller the better... This means ink jet or the equivalent; every other technology makes the printer significantly bigger. A review of the best portable printers shows hardware costs for portable A4/8.5x11" printers much higher than non-portable printers; you can get a good laser printer for US$73 FOB US Destination (more detail) that's only 14" ...
Brother printers support MacOS X, and connect by USB. I'd suggest the B&W Brother LH-L2320D which offers duplexing for $80 FOB Destination (US). Toner refills are also relatively inexpensive.
Had mine (two models up, an all-in-one B&W w/ WiFi I got on sale for $90) over a year with absolutely no problem in printing from MacOS X, Windows 10, and ...
A review of
Brother's MFC-9340CDW specifications, the
HP MFP-M477 data sheet, and the
HP MFP-M479 data sheet
does not show any have the ability to accept input from either a USB-attached or wireless connected keyboard to use it to scan a document and enter a recipient to email directly from those printers.
The Electronic Freedom Foundation has written it is ...
You can find the answer to your question on this same SE:
Transmitting an NIC to NIC Ethernet connection wirelessly 30-50ft
The device requires a power source and has a USB connector for that purpose. If your printer does not provide power at its USB port, you can use a conventional AC to USB adapter.
I can attest that the device works as advertised, but ...
HP Officejet 100 $356.99

Resolution: 1200 dpi
Connective technology: USB, Bluetooth
Printer Technology: Colorized Thermal Inkjet
Supported Paper Formats: Letter (8.5" x 11"), A 4/5/6, Legal, Executive, Statement, B5 (JIS)
This is the cheapest printer I could find that comes with bluetooth and wasn't one of those tiny consumer HP camera ...
The printer Sharp MX-5140N has all your mentioned specifications.
BUT: it is an printer for big offices, if you look for a printer at home, this is not for you.
Additionally it might be best, if you rent this printer with a SLA.
It appears to be very difficult to find a Laser printer under $1000 that comes in as large a size as A3 (11.7 x 16.5 in). I was only able to find a Refurbished/Used - Like New system.
HP Color LaserJet Professional CP5225dn $500.00 + $54.59 shipping
Resolution: 600 DPI
Rate: 20 Pages per minute (ppm)
Technology: Laser (non-LED)
If your current printer ...
This is dependent on brand and design, so there's not a universal, fixed answer. On modern toner-based printers, the average is around 13% of the toner being wasted. Earlier or lousy models can go up to 25%. While it's technologically possible to route the wasted toner from the waste sump back to the print toner, this changes the chemical composition of ...
Maybe a mobile document scanner would work for you.
Something like the Canon imageFORMULA P-208II
It is small, has duplex functionality (scans both sides at once), and scans 8 pages per minute (7.5 seconds per page).
I don't know your budget, but a little bit over 100 £/130 € doesn't seem that bad.
I have no experience with this scanner, but a rating 4.3 ...
I've had great success with a Dymo Labelwriter 450 Turbo. I use it to generate shipping labels, inventory labels, and name tags (with pictures) most often. I've used it for prototyping a few things as well.
The 450 supports a large variety of label sizes. I am not seeing one that is exactly 2.5x3.5, but there are a number that are close and are both ...
I say get the Da Vinci Mini 3D printer, use that to print out plastic backings with a lip, and then print out stickers to put on top on a full-color inkjet printer of any description. You're looking at a total cost of well under $500, plus you get a much more versatile bit of kit into the bargain.
I'm going to recommend the HP Deskjet 460c. This printer meets your requirements, though it is not a thermal printer. It supports printing directly from Android via a wifi connection (no router needed AFAIK) using their official free app. It has a bluetooth receiver built in, but I'm not sure whether the app uses it. It comes with a battery.
I did some digging around and in the end I got a Lexmark CX 310. The only thing it falls down on is the duplex scanning automatically, however the interface allows for it.
Having used it for a while now its a good little printer and fits nicely to my needs.
I use an old HP MFP1212 LaserJet.
It scans to my 3 MacAirs, my Win10 desktop (or via any of them them to a Synology NAS). Pretty much bullet proof, though you can expect the auto sheet-feeder input to give up the ghost after feeding many thousand sheets.
(I also have an Epson hi-res scanner which, frankly, I don't use: my Synology NAS is only 3 TB in RAID-...
