My question is simple:
Are the lower cost colour laser printers worth while for printing
There are issues besides cost to consider.
Modern color laser printers can do a decent job with color photos but
can only print on "standard" papers, so no glossy/matte/... finish
Inexpensive lasers will generally not handle paper larger than legal (US
8.5 x 14 inches), so no large print ability either.
I too like HP for photo printing, I recently bought an HP B8550,
because, besides the standard print sizes (from 4x6 in. to 13x19 in.),
it can also handle non-standard sizes, up to 13x44 in.
So, if you don't care about paper surface type or size, a laser printer
may well be a very good choice. It will also be faster ;)
And no worries of dried ink causing a chicken/egg problem as
recently discussed in d-user.
Note that if the laser doesn't do a perfect job with photos, you can
always get the important ones printed at the drugstore.
Seek truth from facts.
