Printers in my experience always come with a power cable and a USB connector cable if needed (some are wifi), the ink for printers is a minefield, go for one that has individual inks, not a cassette type some colours run out quicker than others.  ::)

I have a Canon MG7750 which also scans items and has separate inks.

Separate inks are a boon imho.

As others have said, they all come with a connecting cable. When setting them up initially it often required a cable link to do the job before wireless recognition

My last two came with noprinter cable.  Luckily my first one worked on the second one so I didnt have to buy another
I preferred my HP machine to my Canon  The fax plugged straight into the fax machine and worked great with BT1571 SERVICE  Canon wont do either 😤

I was under the impression that the computer to printer cable was a standard "issue", ie  printer plug one end and the USB plug the other, all the ones that I've bought have been, (which is why I have about 6 "printer cables" laying about :lol:). I may be wrong but the Epsoms and Canons that I've had, had the same sockets.

Printer/copiers of any description are quite cheap these days - connectivity can be a problem but the costs of replacing whatever sort of 'ink' they use even once can nearly match the purchase price of the printer. :ohmy:

I'd concentrate on that rather than the relatively small cost of cables when making my choice.

My main printer / copier / scanner is a Brother DCP-1610W.

Didn't come with a cable as I recall but I grabbed one from my "bag o' snakes" cables stash so it wasn't an issue

The printer was cheap as chips and instead of dearer-than-diamond-dust inks it is a laser and suitable cartridges are very reasonably priced (and last for ages) Plus with being toner instead of inks it doesn't waste significant amounts 'self-cleaning' etc like the inkjets tend to!

For colour printing I have a Xerox colour laser which I think did come with a cable, albeit one too short for my layout,

I also have a laser printer that I bought late last year.  It didn't come with a cable either but I had the one off the old printer.  I was determined this time to set it up as a wifi printer as I have it in one of the bedrooms so the lack of a printer didn't upset me particularly.

I would also recommend a laser printer as the cartridges last an awful lot longer than the jet printers.
