Looking for a new 3 in 1 printer for home use under $200. My daughter has a Kodak, says the ink cartridges are cheap, but the printer is loud and slow.
Read a couple of good reviews on an Epson. Any advice would be appreciated.
I've had an HP 2175xi for years and it does a great job and uses cheap ink. It is outdated now but with easy workarounds it still works fine with Vista. I will buy another HP because of how well this one works. I wish Vista worked as well.
I have a Canon printer and scanner, seems to do whatever I need or want done ... I bought it off of EBay for half of what it would of sold for at the time ... They got some smoking deals on EBay on computer componants and other things as well ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
Hard to go wrong with any of the big names...Canon, HP, Epson. I have used my 3/1 HP quite a bit the past 4 years..still working fine...even with my change to Vista. I scan all my work (sales) documents to the companies represent, so no faxes for me as everyone is tired with their poor quality (resolution). I use a online fax service...hey hard to go wrong with $7.99 a month with a dedicated local phone number.
WPT is spot on regarding eBay. Saving of 50-70% off retail is common. Also check Radio Shack for closeouts or refurbished units. There is no reason to spend more than $100. for a 3/1 printer in my opinion. Cartriges: I have a local store where I exchange them for $10.95 black or color...they work fine. With Circuit City going down, you might find a deal there.
Wayne... I do cashiering at our club using George Cooks 3S program, in addition to a lot of other club chores such as programs, flyers, business letters, etc.. The Canon Pixma, model MP610 is the best printer I have run across. Very econimical to use, and when set in fast draft mode, will print as fast as you could want. I think it runs about 45 pages per minute. Cartridges are cheap, and the printer is very frugal with the ink. There are a host of printers out there, but, this one works perfectly for my needs and it really does get a workout... Dan Thome (Trap2)
Wayne, I have a Cannon Pixma MP830, it will do everything I need it to do. Fax,copie,scan,print, easy on ink. Have had no trouble with it at all. Bought it on Ebay great deal under $300.00.
