What is your favourite printer brand?

What is your favourite printer brand? Used to have an HP 720C went for years with no problems till some part broke. So went for a Canon next PIXMA 750MP, and have been disappointed in it. Its an inkaholic but only the Canon original inks will do, have trouble with other cheaper ones so it has expensive tastes. Is fiddly to change the cartridges, and somehow it seems to taint the coloured cartridges with the black ink. Now it is printing with lines across when I print in colour. Feel like chucking it out and getting one I like better, but which one? Another HP or have they gone to the dogs too?

no problems with epsons here.

Canons can take any inks ...refills, third party mostly without anything extra required.

Had, both canon & brother. Both are equally good. All comes down to what you want to do. I print photos on the brother (MFC) & no problems. Gave the canon away & wish I had kept it. Was a great printer.

It sems that many of the new models whichever brand have been found to 'not like' cheap inks. I know of two people who had the MX700 Canon and tried cheap ink. Neither printer worked again, Epsons will reject non-brand ink and Brothers will throw out warnings. I do like my Epsons, the ink is reasonable and seems to go a respectable distance. However, if you do large amounts of printing and do not need colour, check out the Brother laser 2140 at around $130.

Epson. I have an Epson Photo R800 with 6 colour cartridges for brilliant photos and an Epson X8300 4 colour for general document printing. I don't believe I can do better.

I like.. any brand and model I can fit ink tanks to. Which doesn't include any printer I now have.
