I can't remember all the printers I've had over the last 40+ years but I can say it's a mixed bag, model to model, regardless of brand.
Atari 400 days: A Brother EP-44 word processor/thermal printer (w/ ribbon for regular paper) that my dad got me for Christmas one year. I loved that thing. It took a while before I completely figured out how to program the Atari and it to communicate with each other (parity and all that other fun stuff of the day), plus a little work in finding the right cable but once I did it was pretty cool.
Some time after that I got an Okimate 10 color thermal printer. Slow as molasses for color printing (it used primary color ribbon to go over each line to create the needed colors. Pretty good quality for the time and the B+W was fast and nice looking as well. They basically had cartridge modules you could swap out to connect it to different computers of the time. I had the one for the Atari 8-bit.
During my Tandy 1000EX days, I had the printer that they made for it at the time. I don't remember much about it except I didn't have any problems with it.
Next up was during the Windows 98 Pentium era. Two bad experiences here. Due to my fond memories of the Brother printer I had before we'd gotten a Brother color inkjet. The quality was nice but it would wake itself up in the middle of the night to clean itself and seriously just consume the ink. I really learned to hate that thing and it only took about a year or so until the jets were clogging up. Next was some kind of Lexmark. The printer was mediocre but what really pissed me off about it was all the spyware crap it installed. No exaggeration, I had to manually go through the registry, and other places to fully extract that crap.
Now onto more modern times and mostly all HP. I got a color HP AIO about 15-16 years and really loved it. It had the ability to color print on CD/DVD's (a special tray for them) or monochrome print on them (there was a name and special type of blanks but I forget what it was called). Something electronic finally gave out on it. It wouldn't POST beyond a certain point and I tried a lot of things but eventually gave up on it. Ended up replacing it with another color inkjet AIO that we still have and it mostly is great except the feed mechanism is failing. Basically have to shove a stack into it to get it to grip.
At work, I inherited a plethora (probably a dozen different models) of HP LaserJet's that have mostly performed like tanks. The only real issues are when Windows gets an update that kicks out the driver and replaces it with junk causing me to have to go to HP to reinstall the right one. Thankfully, that's mostly stopped over the last couple of years but I'm always on the lookout. We got a Canon B+W AIO for one of our smaller offices that uses HP's drum/toner tech and I've had a bit of a love/hate with it. The UI is horrid and the fax scanner has to be constantly cleaned. It will also cease all functions if the toner runs out, you can't even send a fax. At this point, I've switched us over to cloud/e-fax options so we no longer really need it but I've left it there so they can use it as a backup printer or scanner when needed.
Right when the pandemic hit, and just before wfh, we were already in the stages of creating a mobile office setup for our staff who have to go out in the field. I picked out some HP Mobile 250 AIO printers and they've been champs for us. The BT function is about useless but otherwise, they've been great. We don't use the color (at the time I couldn't find something w/o that I was happy with but thankfully they continue to work when the color runs out (something that Brother wouldn't allow).
At this point though, when I do get around to replacing our current inkjet I'll probably get an HP B+W Laserjet AIO.
