    Hah! The HP printer didn't work for me either, so I bought the cheapest Canon copier ($20) at Walmart. It installed easily and works well so far. It also fits better on my small table. At that price it's almost worth buying a new printer when it comes time to replace ink cartridges.

    When you said the HP printer didn't work, it didn't work as a wired USB printer? Interesting.

    Yes printers are cheap but don't confuse the starter cartridges with the full replacement cartridge. They are there just to get you hooked.

    That's right, Ken. The HP printer was attached to my laptop via USB. It would start to work, maybe print a page or two, and then there would by problems with either paper feed, or no print at all. I spent an entire day, even getting an HP tech involved. It finally came to the point where I had enough. Funny that my old printer was a $20 HP brand that lasted for years.
    As far as the cartridges go, the first thing I do when I consider a new printer is check the prices. The price was pretty good for my current cheap printer. Yes, I'm familiar with tactics employed by these printer mfgs. That's where their money is. Not surprisingly, there are numerous outfits that offer to refill your cartridges, or sell equipment for do-it-yourselfers.
    BTW, my printers get very light usage. All I do is occaional regular B&W printing, no photos or anything like that.

    Yea nothing is made the way it use to be. Had an old HP laser, ran for 20 years. I got rid of it because of the parallel port not because it wouldn't print.

    Yeah, Ken. Same way with most other products. Remember when cars had steel bumpers front and back? Now they're all plastic, except some pickups.
