Ink jet all in one wireless printers: POS

All of them. They last about 6 months.

Sure, you can get one for less than $100. But my experience with more expensive models is the same.

Fuck HP and Dell and Brothers and Epson. I print maybe 50 pages a month. Maybe one or two photos. And I sometimes need to copy something. I don't scan or fax.

Today, I had to print a report to the Sheriff's office. The printer didn't work. Had to email it to a friend so she could print it.

At present, I have been on hold to HP technical support for just less than two hours. My time is worth more than this.

I bought another printer for $60. I figure these things are just throwaways now. Like razor blades.

$60 printers are like retread tires-- you get what you pay for. I have a Brother HL-L2350DW. I've had it about three years and it works fine.
