Personal opinion only, but I like HP printers. Have two in use now, one laser about 4 years old and still going strong, and a 1220c inkjet, which replaced a 660c. That 660 is still going in an office as a second printer. Never had a bit of trouble with any of them. I think that running costs of an HP printer tend to be a bit cheaper than Epson et al, but I'm open to correction on that.
I find Epson to be slow, and expensive to run, and Canon not such good quality prints. Personal experience only, and I may be wrong.
be wary of strong drink - it may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
