What Kind Of Printer Do You Have?

Wed Jul 24, 2002 10:31 am

Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on your own printers. Good points and bad. What did you pay and note type of currency?

My current printer is an HP PhotoSmart P1100 which I've had for a couple of years now.



I've had cartridge problems lately. I think it's bad contact points. Keeps giving me an error message that the colour cartridge isn't installed correctly.

When it's working, the colour reproduction is excellent. It has 2 slots on the side for Smartmedia and Compactflash which is a nice feature.

The HP cartridges are expensive. Although I usually have mine refilled instead of paying $50-60 CDN for a new one.(tri-colour)

My primary printer is an HP LaserJet 2100TN (with 10/100 Ethernet JetDirect, PostScript support, 3rd tray...damn, I love this printer!) My color is a (much more modest) DeskJet 842C over USB...

Okidata OL400e. I've had it for years, it is a beast! Needs a drum though, I'm surprised it's gone this long on one drum.

A Lexmark OptraLX+ laserprinter
Lexmark Optra LX+

It spits out about 16 pages/minute at a noise level of 50 dBA (and I have it about 50-60 centimeters from my head)

Epson Stylus Color 777. Cheap to buy but drains ink by the toilet fulsh (On the sceond lowest quality setting). And with the cartridges at $40+ a piece is really expensive to maintain.

My family has two printers for two PCs, one Canon BJC-4100 & another Canon BJC-4200. They're okay, but sometimes they print the ink dry

Lord, so many!

Ricoh Aficio 401 copier/digital printer with finisher
Minolta Pageworks 20 (a real workhorse)
2 Lexmark/IBM 4029's- old but good.
HP LaserJet 5
HP LaserJet 1100ASE
HP DeskJet 520 (x3)
Okidata OL8 (cheap, simple, good)
and
Epson PhotoColor 1200, slow but excellent color quality.

By the way, I buy Epson color cartridges off of ebay for next to nothing, they work very well.

Compaq IJ300, it came w/ the PC. Eh, it's ok I guess, the software that comes with it talks when it's printing so it is quite entertaining. Also alerts me when it's on low ink, and advises me to 'purchase a cartridge at my nearest authorized Compaq retailer'

My main printer is a HP LaserJet 5L that I picked up used last year for $105 CDN including a new cartridge. I love that printer - it fits my needs just perfectly since I don't need to print in colour. The cost per page printed is way lower than what I used to get with inkjets.

My parents use a Canon MultiPass 1000 which was one of the first integrated fax machine/printers, I think they bought it back in 1995.
For our macs we use an Apple StyleWriter II which is basically the same design as a Canon bubblejet.

I also have several printers that I no longer use:

-Canon Bubblejet 250 "Lite"
-HP DeskWriter
-Apple ImageWriter II dot matrix
-Panasonic Dot matrix.

I have an HP Deskjet 895, but my dad has the HP C1700- it's one hell of a printer- seperate cartridges from the print drivers, I think that's what they're called. Has the page reverser thingy, able to print sheets about as big as a pillow, envelopes, you name it, it can do it.
