What brand of Printer do you have?

Postby crowfeather » Wed 06.07.2006 10:37 pm

My printer broke down and I need to buy a new one.
This is the second Epson "3 in 1" that I have had which only lasted a few weeks beyond one year.
Their printing clarity is great, but their reliability seems poor. Plus their ink is very expensive. I can't use generic ink, because they put a chip in the ink cartridge which prohibits using generic ink.

I am intersted in reading people's opinion of the printer they own

Also, does anyone know of a forum where people post their opinions of various printers that are currently on the market?

Thanks,
Barbara

Ink for inkjets is expensive, period.

I've got an HP Deskjet 920c that I've had for a few years. I may not use it as heavily as you do, though. Works great, but it it's a dedicated printer, not a 3-in-1. I also still have a much older Panasonic KX-P2124 dot matrix impact printer that still worked the last time I used it, but I haven't used it since installing XP on this computer.

HP PSC 950.
It's printer, scanner, and xerox machine all rolled into one. I works great, though I don't know if the ink is expensive or not

Way to really contribute to the topic. Very helpful.

I set my mom up with a small Brother laser printer. It was really awesome, and only $150 bucks or so. Of course, it was only black and white (but fast and sharp).

If you've got some money to spare, I would recommend a low-end color laser printer.

most printers are made to last about 12 months.. at the cost you can replace a printer as cheap as replacing the pirnter cartridges..

printers suck
Good luck with studying everybody and I hope one day I will be able to pick it back up.

Until then, a nice goodbye from me to you ;)

Buy a quality printer next time ;)

I have Panasonics KXP-6100
laser printer (no colours).
It has worked fine for over 6
years. Recently, however, it has
started to smudge paper, which
is unfortunate...
