That's a cracking website Andy, thanks for the link. The ones that interest me are on this page http://www.printerland.co.uk/Wireless-C ... 25152.aspx . I need an all-in-one type printer as there's only place it can sit (on the shelf below my desk). Mrs Corky wouldn't be on my case otherwise :lol: Apparently I hog the garage, the shed, the loft and every other clear surface in the house :w

For all your printer consumable needs, head my way!

If you found an old model HP laserjet that takes the q6000 series toners i can sort you right out, we have cases of the buggers in stock!

Now he tells us! I have just bought a set of Xerox 6600 compatible cartridges that will last me more than a year!

If you want reliable inkjet you really need a type that has seperate printheads not the ones built into the cartridge itself as it's those that as you say fail if not regularly used, we use inkjet at work and I do at home of this type without any problems, just watch for HP they seem to refuse to work if non HP ink used, seems they put out an update to make this happen, bit naughty in my book if out of warranty

I think Epson have done the same with a sneaky update. It is something worth researching before plumping for a particular model.

Don't bite ha ha. I put thin dotted borders to distinguish them but W/B's have a centre strip just like the wire. I often print & laminate my Sabre/Sabra drgs for others to use in the garage. Actually the last ones I have done I used a grey for the edge outline so it works a bit like your method but only for the white wire.
There are very few whites to use that scenario for. I reckon you have shares in an ink cartridge maker. If you ask nicely I could let you have a copy of Visio. Its an ace prog not just for wiring dwgs.

No one will convince me to buy another inkjet over a laser. I've had inkjets for 20yrs. Time for a change.

You will never look back Steve. I would certainly not bother with inkjet again.

I never went there in the first place. Saw the issues years ago with customers and neighbours. An A4 pic laminated restores the brightness of the raw print and makes a very acceptable photograph.

That's actually a wide format plotter rather than a printer Peter, bit like comparing a grape to a water melon in my book :lol:

Sounds like people are paying too much for their ink and toner, do feel free to email me via sales@biggestdiscount.co.uk if you are after anything. Our current website is a bit old hat and the new one is taking forever to be built so.

"Old and Slow"
The Q6000 series is a slow moving line for us now so could do them at £60.00 a set.

"Toomanysabres"
Geoff - fancy a single 1320 Cyan toner? Then I can delete them as a line!

AJL, Xerox 6600 is not someting we keep stock for though they shouldn't be a problem to supply future.

Anyway enough touting the business!

The question at hand Mr Cork is probably best answered with review websites for the printer it's self, but do pay much consideration to the cost of toners. For example on the page you linked the HP M277 MFP may cost just £200, but you are looking at the same cost again for replacement toners! Even compatibles would be around £120-150 a set.

Which of the makes/models tend to have the best value toners?

With inkjets, Epson always seemed to work out cheapest. My old daisywheel used cheap typewriter ribbons, as did the dot matrix. The plotter I had for my Oric 1 used sawn off Biros .... halcyon days...

I do not like inkjets. Always out of ink when you don't use them often. Blocked jest etc.
Water and inkjet prints are a bad combination.

I bought a wireless network printer, a HP Color Laser Pro M252dw and I am very satisfied. Very decent prints. Works excellent from any of our laptops. Even from my phone I can print without hassle.
I do use a seperate scanner, as I do not like the all-in-one combis.
