    Let's hope so. Inkjet printers are fucking expensive and always have to be replaced twice a year or more.

    Instead of buying inkjet refills, it's much cheaper to buy a new inkjet printer with the starter ink. icon_lol.gificon_confused.gif

    I feel the same way.You have to refill them. wait on them, align them, install/replace ink, open their trays, buy paper, clean clogged heads. Only good printer I ever saw was at Kinkos or a publishing office. Home printers are only good the first few uses. After that. Its maintenance, maintenance, maintenance...broken...oops time to replace..

    WhyWhySee saidPeople don't realize that the starter cartridges often have much less ink.

    And so do those in multi-color packs, at least in the HP line.

    We've been using an HP Photosmart All-in-One inkjet printer for 3 years now, still going strong. And we use it a lot, printing at least 20 pages a day on average. Plus pictures on photo paper from a separate tray.

    And we use all its functions, the fax, scanner, copier, and of course printer, with its 2-sided printing feature. It's 6-color, and the photos it makes are very nice. But when it goes I'm gonna consider a color laser all-in-one with multiple paper trays, essentially a small business model, because we use it so much.

    Also because inkjet isn't waterproof, and among the things we print are flyers we post that can be exposed to moisture. My only concern is whether a laser in our price range will make photos as well. Any experience with this?

    I owned an inkjet printer in the mid-90s, and I replaced it with an HP LaserJet 6L in 1998, swearing to never again own a printer that uses liquid ink. That was my only printer until my recent purchase of an HP LaserJet Pro 400 color laser printer.

    The new printer cost a bit over $400, and it came with a set of starter toner cartridges that have about half the capacity of replacement cartridges. A full set of HP toner cartridges costs $400. Clearly, HP makes their money off the toner and not the printer. Unfortunately for HP, we do so little printing that the starter cartridges will probably last 10 years.

    Art,

    The reason I chose that particular color laser printer is that it got pretty good reviews for its photo printing. But, I don't think the photo quality can match what you'd get from an inkjet.

    GordonLee90232 saidLaser printers are in my opinion still far better than the inkjet printers because they are just so much faster at printing stuff out but I really haven't seen a color laser printer that is affordable so I am just waiting for the day hopefully soon when color laser printers will be within reach of the average consumer.


    How cheap do they have to get to satisfy your idea of affordable for the average consumer? The HP I bought is geared toward small business, is networked and has a duplexer, yet it only cost a little over $400. To me, that's a steal, and there are all sorts of things that average consumers buy in the $400 dollar range. There are cheaper color laser printers on the market, but they are not known for their print quality.

    Consumer laser printers are common now. Samsung makes a decent black and white laser printer for less than $100. They make a color model for less than $200. HP also has a few low priced consumer B&W and color laser printers.
