Default Best AIO color laser(?) printer in 2017?

Replacing a WF-7520 with CIS at the office. The ink waste pad is EOL. I know about solutions like Printer Potty, but the WF-7520 also requires clean print head function to be run quite frequently which is very annoying - so would like to buy a good long term replacement.

Budget: | $250, framed by the MF634Cdw -- but could do higher if necessary and cheaper is always better
Country: | USA
Color or black and white: | Color
Laser or ink printer: | Laser (assuming this is lowest cost per page)
New or used: | Either
Multi-function: | Yes: Scan/Copy
Duplex Printing: | Preferred, not mission critical
Home or business: | Business
Printing content: | Primarily standard 8x11 business documents, ability to print the occasional flyer / fancy a plus
Printing frequency: | Variable, WF-7520 reached EOL with ink waste pad in 5 years
Pages per minute : | Don't care
Page size: | Letter. Ability to match WF-7520's paper capabilities a plus.
Device printing from: | PC, MAC
Connection type: | WiFi, Ethernet

Additional details:

The WF-7520 has worked well, except for the fact that the printhead cleaning function periodically needs to be run 5+ times in a row manually to fix bad quality printing and the waste ink pad expiring is a pain that I don't want to deal with again.

Need a network printer that 'just works' in printing basic color documents at the lowest cost with scanning/copy function. Should not require frequent hands on maintainence like swapping ink/toner or running printhead clean cycles. The ability to match the variable paper types that the WF-7520 does is a bonus.

EDIT: Settled on the SL-C3060FW for $299 total, if there's something better your comments are appreciated
