Looking for advice on economic Multi-Fuction Printer
I am thinking of replacing my old printer with a multi-function printer, and I need help finding the right one for me.
I am looking for something less than $100 (more like less than $75 really), the less the better, and specially economic when it comes to ink cartridges, I want a machine that doesn't suck up the ink like a sponge and the replacement cartridges won't cost as much as the machine. I know I am asking for a lot for a little, I just want a good enough printer, copier and scanner machine. Looking all over the internet at many brands and models, one that got my attention is a Brother DCP-130c, but maybe someone has a better suggestion.
Thanks for the help.
Oh jeeze, and me without my consumer's reports... hum, I can do a better check in 2 days if you can wait.
For now, for ink jet, I still don't think there is anyone that is going to beat out HP. However, they are the ones that are highest in ink cartridges. They place the print head on the cartridge, so it makes it CONSIDERABLY more expensive.
My next choice would be Epson, but... well, epsons usually arn't cheep either. I don't think their ink cartridges are too bad, but the printer itself... no. Lexmark is always pretty cheap, but they have crap for print quality (at least every lexmark I've ever seen). Cannon doesn't do too bad from what I hear, but... I don't know, never been a big fan of them. XD
Oh, and I don't even know who Brother is... so... meh.
This is about all I can offer for now.
Most not in your price range...
thanks to Silverwmoon!
Thank for the reply, I had read that article , and you're right most of them are out of my price range , my only experience is with Lexmark printers, the printing quality is Ok, but their ink cartridges cost as much as the machine and haven't had a good experience having them refilled, from what I have read Canon and Epson machines are good but they suck ink like a camel does water. I guess the main thing I'm looking at is the operating cost; ink cartridge price and how much I can get out of each cartridge, I am not going to buy anything right away so I have no problem waiting for more advise.
