Re: Why I Hate Printers

I have a Canon D540 laser printer and it rarely, if ever, screws up. I also have an Epson XP-830 and it had issues at first, but when it works it's literally magic. It can auto scan a bunch of papers at once double sided. Blew my mind when I saw it do that. Of course getting the scans from the printer to the computer is a hassle sometimes but apart from that it's cool beans.

My mother, who teaches at a middle school, has access to the industrial-type printers that cost upwards of 5k. Prints one page per second, double sided and stapled and hole punched as well. Can also copy papers at the same rate.

Re: Why I Hate Printers

Our current arsenal:
HP LaserJet M506dn
HP LaserJet CP2025dn
HP LaserJet CP3505n
HP Designjet T1100ps
HP Designjet Z5600
Brother DCP-L2540DW
Brother MFC-J6520DW
Xerox Phaser 8560DN
Xerox Phaser 7800GX

Oh, and my own personal Konica Minolta Bizhub C360. I suppose you could say I like having many printers available.

Although I've taken all my classes mostly paperless, these all have a specific purpose and they all still see use

Re: Why I Hate Printers

I currently have a Brother HL-L5200DW and it's one of the best printers that I have own. I use it both for my Amazon business and printing random things for my team (FLL rubrics, brochures) Brother has great black and white laser printers plus if you buy the 3rd party toner cartridges, printing becomes so cheap.

For color prints, I have a separate HP printer that runs on HP Instant Ink. I only use it on occasions that require color printing.

Re: Why I Hate Printers

Tip: buy printers that have off brand ink availably on amazon, cheap, lasts longer, same quality

Re: Why I Hate Printers

I can really relate to that content. None of the printers at home have lasted a year, my laptop is still working fine, but the printer won't work.

Re: Why I Hate Printers

Don't get me wrong, I still hate printers. But I've begun to hate them much less since I learned that I can email them my documents. For whatever reason, this seems to work much more reliably.

My HP printer can accept photos and documents over email, but I try to avoid using it as much as possible. There's no way to set print settings this way, so you're at the mercy of HP's default (and usually undesirable) print settings. I'm sure it's fine for normal text documents, but it's nearly unusable for images.

Re: Why I Hate Printers

A great way to get revenge on an annoying printer is to "scrap it" by taking out any electronics out that you could use, if their are any, and then get a sledgehammer and have some fun with what remains. It reduces stress and if anyone asks what you are doing then just say that you are "scrapping" it which is technically true
