A Word about Printers

..and the word is &%#@^. or it might even be "help"

 

Now, Angie, I am not whining.  This is plain cussing.

Are you in the market for a printer?  I would say avoid HP Deskjet 350 All in One. I bought it because it was cheap. But it was built to gobble ink like a sailor with a 12 hour leave drinks beer.  I paid less than a hundred for the machine, but since then, I have paid over a hundred dollars a year for ink.

But worse than that... the software has some idiosyncratic twist. If you run out of paper, it sulks for days.  It was my own fault.  I let it run out and I knew about the sulk. Now I have no printer for God knows how long. 

But I'm not whining.  I am swearing.

PS... The Inkoholic is working again.  I must remember not to let it run out of paper or ink.

I have a Lexmark that is incompatible with my Vista (ugh) now and also a HP 3 in 1 that was a replacement from the company when my first when bit the dust wayyy before it's warranty period was elapsed.  Of course, they won't replace a replacement....go figure ?  I'll never buy HP again......along with the 5 different ink bottles or whatever it is that you have to buy.  Looks like we're all in the mess together, Ollie !!  LOL
