I should say, if you use it fairly consistently, it works great. Prints amazingly fast and we've never had an issue. But let it go into sleep mode after a couple days of not using it, and it takes a couple minutes to power up. it makes endless noise, but prints nothing.

Back when printers where just printers, I had an old Lexmark that I used for like 8 years and never gave me ----, only calibrated it once, when I first got it, and cartridges only required changing cartridges not recalibrating. Broke it when moving

Bought an HP, first time the ink went out I bought HP replacement ink and the printer decided it didnt want to calibrate then decided it didnt want to do anything, just stopped.

Bought a Epson Workforce 545, Love it, set it up wirelessly in like 5 minutes,something that evaded me for like a year on my HP, it prints quietly and quickly and doesnt have an issue with grabbing paper. My HP had to be manually fed one a time since it was brand new.

Only thing I dont know about is ink longevity and price since I currently only use it to print papers and projects.


Im may replace it though as Im about to start printing lots of high quality colored DVD case covers any one have something thats good on ink and not retardly expensive for replacements.

My last 2 were HP Photosmart printers, and like I said, both ------- garbage. Unreliable, easily breaks, and when they were working, required an hour of trouble to ever get something printed. It's like the drivers liked uninstalling themselves or something, so every time I wanted to print something the computer wouldn't see it and I'd have to pretty much do a new install of all of the software. The one before those two was a Lexmark, and was decent while it lasted, but it didn't last long at all before shitting itself. The last Photosmart printed 4x6 pictures really well though. Almost 1 hour photo lab quality prints on good waxy paper. Only got to print a few of them before it quit feeding paper though. I may just get something a bit higher end next time I feel like buying one. With the cost of my last 3 cheaper ones, I could have gotten a pretty good one for $300-$400 and been done with it. Or just bring a flash drive to one of the printing stores and let them make me some high end prints when I need them. I rarely need a printer anyway.

I had a Samsung laser that I bought for $50 new in 2004ish. The toner started to run out a few months ago for the first time, so I gave it away on craigslist and got a new printer, a Brother multi-function laser for like $100. The new toner was almost as much as I paid for the printer, so I figured I'd upgrade since I needed a scanner anyway. The thing is pretty awesome. It's pretty damn fast, even for warmup from sleep.

How does the scanner do? Much detail, or only suited for text scanning?

I had a monochrome Brother HL-(something) for 5 or 6 years. Hell of a great printer. I didn't do a large volume of printing, but it never gave me one single problem.

When the toner cartridge finally ran dry, I replaced it with a Konica Minolta 1600W color laser. I've had that one for about 3-4 years so far, and it too is turning out to be a fabulous printer. The black cartridge is just about empty, and I've ordered another as I've decided to keep this printer around for a while.

Unless you absolutely need to print actual photographs on photo paper, there's just no reason to own an inkjet anymore for 99% of users. I've been without one for more than a decade at this point, and I can honestly say that I have not had a single printer problem in all that time.

Looking back through the lens of history, inkjet was just a cheap fad to cover the gap in time between dot matrix and affordable solid-state laser.

FWIW, Opti, color lasers are great at printing DVD covers.

Printers are probably the #1 source of headache for IT departments (ask me how I know). Having said that, I have a network color laser printer (HP CM1415fn), which is also a scanner, fax, copier, and works absolutely flawlessly under Linux, as that's where I do all my work. Expensive, but I'm very happy with it.

While we're on the topic of printers.. the normal cartridge printers.. get the continuous ink system... i think i got mine for 30 bucks or something like that.. just 1 ink cartridge for my printer costs like 18 bucks and with the cis you're getting 4 all with like 4-5 oz each color and you can fill them up with regular ink later. I get roughly 10 prints per cartridge. Why so little? i rarely use it so when i clean it twice per the little chip records 2 prints and simply it wont let me print because the "chip shows empty". Freaking scams with those chips.
