My parents need a printer.
It needs to be a network printer. It needs to be a cheap printer. It needs to NOT require us to replace $50 of ink or toner every six months.
So I'm thinking a laser printer.
They would like a scanner too — but scanner/network/laser adds a few hundred dollars to the price.
Maybe it's 'cuz I'm from wacky old Canada, but my printer/scanner/fax/copier cost $99 (which I define as cheap) and I pay like $12 to refill my ink cartridge at any of a hundred mall kiosks. (New, my cartridge cost $20.)
It's HP Office Jet 4500.
I know of a place which used to refill ink cartridges. The big question for me is: where are my parents going to actually go to get refills.
But I know this Office Jet 4500. It's a pretty nice printer.
All printers suck. Inkjets suck the mostest. Get 'em a laser if at all possible.
Officejets are inkjet printers. A good BW Laserjet shouldn't run you much, but look for capacity and multitrays if they have to switch from forms or envelopes.
If they don't behave I'm gonna get them a manual typewriter and tell 'em to suck it up! ;-)
I went and ordered an Epson wireless inkjet. And they will complain about it. Shouldn't my nephew be the one who does their tech support?
