can anyone recommend a reasonably priced printer/fax/copier please
i'm about to throw ours out the window!
yep, Canon are great although the cheaper they are, the more expensive on the ink. Although of course you can use third party inks to get around it. I always feel that paying a bit more for the printer in the first place is worth it.Originally Posted by Skywatcher, post: 197548
The other one to mention is Kodak. They've messed up big time in the transition from film to digital and they know it. They've upped their game and have a huge mission to rejuvenate their company by producing printers which use less ink and cheaper ink saving an incredible amount per year if you use it a decent amount. In any case, given the stupid cost of ink these days, they're to be applauded for this attempt I think
HP lost me as an inkjet customer when they got so wound up trying to force us all to buy their expensive inks that a cartridge I'd bought but not used more than twice, stopped working with an error message of "cartridge out of date". They had put in an actual artificial "stop working on..." date into all the cartridges no matter how they'd been used with no easy way to bypass it and say no thanks, I'll take the chance. Never again HP, I've got a Lonnnnnng memory for being scammed
all i bought for the school were hp's and never had a single problem with them never had that error message but i did hear about it on all in ones, never bught any of those as im not a fan of them at all. i always got refilled carts and they worked a treat. now we rent all printers, all lasers mainly mono and 5 colours all kyocera and they are better i must admit. for a smallish mono laser hp's are great :)
I reckon a school would use the ink much more quickly than most home-users anyway so they wouldn't get that message.
I've had it too and it's annoying. The cartridge still had enough to leak all over my hand when I removed it, but apparently not enough to print!
Here's another nod for Canon. I have a Canon MP530 and it's fabulous; however, mine is corded. I love it.
canon never HP
epson are good but the inkheads clog up
I did have an hp for a few years and it was good, but it finally gave out. That's when I went for the canon. I feel that it is much better.
