Why do all printers suck
« on: August 25, 2017, 05:32:21 pm »
I had a cannon.   It was a piece of shit and constantly jammed and disconnected from the network.

Got an HP, similar issues and total ink hog.   The ink is expensive.

Now I have a Brother that doesn't recognize paper in tray, and if you want to use a size other than letter, you must carefully load one sheet at a time while it spits out blank sheets here and there, prints slow as fuck too.  It would be faster if I just sent it to the print shop then trying to fuck around with all of the loading one sheet.

That movie Office Space is so true.  I just want to beat the shit out of this printer.  Copy machines too. 


Thanks for not posting anything all day.  Jerks.  You guys were printers in another life.

Printers (like whores) fall into two categories.  Disposable and cheap (the ones us plebes use), or long lasting and expensive (the ones you'll find at a law firm or something, I don't know what brands they are, Kyocera?).  The Brother I have right now works very well but it's gonna crap out soon, it always does.

I paid $1200 for a HP laser printer in 1998 that lasted 7 years and I rode it hard.  I got the one I have now for free for buying a computer.

I bought the HP ink refill plan for $2.99 a month. HP is linked to my printer through the internet and can tell when my ink is low. When it's low, they automatically send me refills.

Funny thing though: one time I didn't pay my $2.99 and they shut down my printer remotely. I couldn't print, make a copy on it or anything.

Wow.  How did they do that?  Does the contract let them shut down your printer if you don't pay for the ink?  Do they repo the ink that's in the printer?

That's really fucked up.  It would kinda weird me out that they are watching everything I'm printing.

I have a Kyosera. Its awesome. $80 a month includes service, ink, and payment. I was spending $750 a year on ink alone prior to the switch.

The first ink jet I ever bought was in 2000, a HP 810C, still works. It's just very difficult to find ink for it. I currently have an all-in-one HP, and I rarely print anything. I never have had any major problems with printers, especially since I switched to Mac. Usually most print problems are driver related in Windows. Or P.I.C.N.I.C. errors.

Wow.  Can I ask who your vendor is?  Is that for color laser?  Tell me more, please.
