Re: Printer suggestion
Well, I agree with the laser printer. If you have the money and don't
need color, get an older HP 4 or something of the like.
For an ink jet, however, I own and Epson and, IMHO, they make a better
product. They are a bit cheaper, but built just as well, have high res
and are pretty fast. You mention higher cost to maintain (what are you
referring to?) but I don't see that. I have a 440 and it works very
well for color printing; If you have money, buy something with a faster
pages per minute. I mention this because the 440 is about the same
price as the bottom of the line HP but that model has only one cartridge
- i.e. you can only do black and white or color. The 440 has a CMYK
with a K cartridge and a CMY cartridge.
Just my $.02
