    I've been a happy camper since i purchased my Epson printer, all my previous printers before the Epson were Canon's and all of them had some sort of issues after the first year of use. :D

    After one Canon that was prone to inoperability, I purchased a Brother and have stayed with that brand ever since. :thumb:

    My main printer has been an HP Laserjet 6P - purchased circa 1995. It cost (I still remember) about $800! But I must say, I've never had a problem with it.

    Ditto! I purchased an Epson AIO Printer in 2004 and it functioned brilliantly until last year August. The colors didn't come out perfect any longer, except for the black print. Not Bad - 7 years eh? Needless to say I again purchased an AIO Epson and no problems so far. (knocking on wood) Their Customer Service was always excellent the few times I called them over the years although the warranty period was long expired.

    In the past had one of every make fail, every make seems to have some poor quality model printers at some time or another.

    Nowadays I keep any old cheap inkjet about for my occasional printing needs.
    If quality or bulk value is important I use professional service. I've found using HP, Epson and Canon inkjets I get too many poor quality photo prints, printing errors etc to be worth the hassle of finding the best ink/paper combo worthwhile. Now use online services for photos (and don't get me started on how hard it is to find a reliable service that can upload over 1gb worth of photos in one go, I've only found photobox with their FTP service workable) and local Staples for the very occasional bulk printing we have needed.

    Cheers, Nick
