All printers stink by [email protected]
What's up with printers these days? I've went through every brand and they are all bad. No not the print quality, just the basic stuff. I had a few nice printers in the mid 90s and ditched them for what I thought would be improved printers. The main problems are the simplest problems, to actually...

What inkjet printer prints the best text? by B. Schneier[_2_]
Most of my printing involves documents and legal briefs. There is some color printing for brochures and stuff I find on the Internet. Can someone recommend a color ink jet that prints laser-like text and is reasonably fast. Thanks in advance, BS

Epson printers are electronic theieves by Dr. Dweeb
Gentlemen, I have reached the conclusion that the Epson corporation is both incompetant and corrupt. Someone should sue their scrawny little asses. I have an RX500 - a high end combi-device. Today, the reading on my black ink cartridge hit zero, while the other 5 read between 23-28% I replaced...

I tried solvents, new black cartridges, air blasts, and even contacted Canon. Their stupid answer was make sure the cartridge has ink. It was buy a new print head or a new printer...WRONG...a pot with 1 inch of very hot water cleared the clogged print head in a couple of minutes. It was amazing...

Are we wrong to ignore Epson photo printers? by Lady Margeret Thatcher
Up to now, "we" have been convinced that I should get a Canon photo printer because we have been pretty happy with the results of the Canon S520. Couple of clogs, but easily remedied by cleaning with rubbing alcohol (the kind you get from the chemist that you can't drink, for you Brits). But "we"...

what's with my ink setup? by rb[_4_]
For whatever reason, everytime we put one ink, out of a set, in my Epson CX9400Fax the other inks don't "recognize" it. Therefore, we have to put in all four cartridges together, and everything seems fine. What's going on with this? Why can't I change a single cartridge???

Yes, your color printer is spying on you by SSW

Buydig / Beech Camera by _R
I'm told that Buydig is a branch of Beech Camera. Are these reputable vendors for printers and cameras? They have good prices on the HP 1320 that I was considering. Any reason to avoid them? Thanks

Epson printers - 2400 vs. 4800 ?? by Mark Anon
Aside from the obvious difference in print output size, what are the _real quality_ differences between the new Epson 2400 and 4800 printers? The 2400 advertises much higher 5760x1440 dpi printing, but the 4800 at 2880x1440 is listed as a "Pro" model. What gives? Both use the new K3 inks. TIA...

The true cost of printing ink ? by Red Fox
Today I paid over $40 for two dinky little ink cartridges. I bet the empty cartridges cost no more than a $ or 2 to make, so why does the ink and refilling cost so much? It seems that the number of outfits refilling the cartridges is now becoming an epidemic. Maybe that will bring the price...
