Best printer brand? What is the best printer brand? The one that has the least faults, best printing and lowest ink 'wastage'?

Canon & Epson are good value HP are good quality. Lexmark are ripoffs for ink. YMMV - my advice is from vague impressions over the past 10 yearsthings change.

It's probably appropriate to ask what your budget is first. A bit like asking which is the best car.

I've always been an HP fanBut that's just my opinion.

Be sure to choose your printer type carefully - lasers are cheaper to run on a per page basis - but you won't be able to do photo printing like you can on an inkjet

Maybe best to get your own? That would eliminate possible quibbles over ink usage? I like "Brother" (DCP series), have one that I picked up new under $100, it can do everything, scan, photocopy, print and lots more. So to me, good value for money. Cartridges seem to last reasonably well too.
