I've had a Canon Mx700 for 4-5 years now. Print, Copy, Fax - all good. Not sure if it is still made but there will be similar. Do NOT touch Epson - you can empty an ink canister on head clean. cheers Simon -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Meshack Sent: 20 August 2013 17:51 To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] printer recommendations I might suggest looking into a laser printer. The inkjet printer business model is like the razor blade model... they sell you the printer cheap because they will make more money from you when you buy replacement ink cartridges. I read somewhere that ink is more expensive than vintage champagne or imported Russian caviar. http://www.pcworld.com/article/112199/article.html In the short run you may save by getting a printer for under $100, but in the long run you are paying. A laser jet will cost more in the short run, but those things are workhorses, and their prices have come down so that color lasers are in the realm of affordability. That's my $.02 -Meshack -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Lightning Sent: Monday, August 19, 2013 1:21 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] printer recommendations Who here has a good inexpensive printer they can recommend? Prefer 3-n-1 (doesn't have to be) about $100. Just bought HP Officejet 4622. Paper tray doesn't align correctly, chews up paper, doesn't print. It's going back. Next printer has to come well recommended! -- -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
