Wireless Network Filter: Wireless print servers - simple for a networking neophyte to set up?

We have two laptops at home accessing the interweb-thingy over a DSL powered wireless network. We have one USB color printer (HP) that currently we have to take the laptops to and plug it in so we can print anything. I am thinking of getting a USB-wireless print server (I’ve seen them by Belkin, Dell and D-Link for around $100) that the printer USB cord plugs into so we can then print to it wirelessly from anywhere in the house. My question is, are these fairly simple and idiot-proof to set up? Any known issues or problems with them?
