So my old wired printer was assassinated by the cats last night, and now I'm looking to upgrade to something a bit more recent and nicer. My family has brought up the idea that we ought to buy a wireless printer, because they'd love the opportunity to print right from their iPhones. I'm kind of iffy on that- I don't know how hard it is to secure them and everything; and I'd rather prefer a wired printer that I can just connect to my computer (I really don't want to leave an opening on the home network to let people in and maybe at my PC).
Are wireless printers safe, and are there any that are good values for the price? We'd love one that can get plenty out of the ink cartridges it takes, and we're looking at spending a max of about $150 on it as far as a budget.
