anyone got any recommendations for a printer. We've finally had enough of our HP, it ate ink and was always going wrong. Needs to be able to scan and air print. I don't really want to spend a lot of money. Thanks
I was gonna say your choices are limited by the airprint compatible choice but I see theyve added TONS more now :DOriginally Posted by britchick, post: 284867
I can't really recommend because my choice is always laser rather than inkjet. They print for ages without needing anything changing and theyre not that much money nowadays.
What are the laser printers like for printing photos, are they any better now

there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

They're OK depending which you get but then yah know, I personally wouldnt print my photos on a normal run of the mill inkjet either ;-) I have a day to day printer and then I have a special photo printer made for that job.Originally Posted by Wendy, post: 284876
So yeah I agree, if you want a genuine do it all printer to print and keep photos I guess you'll get a better result with an inkjet but the compromise is you'll be forever changing ink carts and blockages and blah blah v a laser which will print you thousands of sheets of text and images with nothing needed.
well you'll kill me but..... I've always liked HP for lasersOriginally Posted by britchick, post: 284878
Now for inkjets, hp have always been annoying. First to put chips in their cartridges, first to expire WORKING carts on the basis of age :/ and generally icky.
For lasers though, they've been a "standard" for years.
I'm not up with the very latest models but HP LaserJet Pro 100 color MFP M175nw we have that in some of the offices at work and it's always performed well enough for a cheapy laser.
For what it's worth, we use HP lasers at work too. They are work horses for the most part. Basic printers, nothing too fancy and we don't use color, but they get the massive printing needs taken care of nicely.
The cartridges for ink/toner are expensive though...
True, true. Even at work they seem to last a very long time. I do a LOT of printing.
what turned me onto hp lasers was University of Liverpool. They bought them and not particularly fancy models, threw them in the student access labs and left them. They must have done so many hundreds of thousands of pages. Toner carts changed almost every day. I swear, I was in some of those labs doing 24hrs to get a thesis done or whatever and the hp lasers were going constantly until they'd run out of toner.Originally Posted by Tink, post: 284913
Inkjets just feel flimsy by comparison and because they make all their money from consumables, it feels like the changing of ink is never ending with them.
