  1. Hey guys,

    I thought I would chime in on the whole printer thing. I used to avoid all-in-one machines and always bought the scanner and printer separately. I always thought (and still do) the more in one device the more there is to break. However, they have come a long way and I currently have a Canon all-in-one, including fax, and I love it. The basic advantage is that it takes up a lot less space, and they are so cheap now it just makes sense.

    As far as ink cost- Before getting this printer, I once bought a new printer based on the fact that it was cheaper to get a new printer than buying ink for the old one. I actually knew of someone who would buy a new printer each time he needed ink because it was the same price or even cheaper in some cases. I do prefer the printers with multiple cartridges for color. That way you can swap out a yellow, for example, when that runs out and not waste what is left of cyan and magenta in a combo cartridge. When I taught Graphic Art a few years back I had two printers in my classroom that had eight cartridges each. They printed beautiful photos, but we also went through three times as much cyan and yellow as we did green. I also only bought Canon ink, because there was a huge difference in color quality between the Canon ink and generics. Generics are great for general printing, but there definitely is a difference in quality.

    That’s it. I’ll stop rambling now.
