What about laser?
Not an option for me. An inkjet with superb quality on photo paper is only 60
euros. What price a colour laser?
A lot. :-)
200 or 300€, I think.
But the "cartridges" also last a lot, and inks don't dry in the head if you
don't use it for weeks.
My previous ink printer clogged after not using it for a week or so (non original inks by
were much cheaper). I still have a small spirit bottle I used to clean the head with. Just
that I had to print a CV in a hurry, and the damned thing would print an ugly photo with
lines. So I had to stop and clean it (with spirit, the clean function was not enough).
Then one of
the colours would be spent, and I would have to refill, and then try my test page, then
half an hour if lucky, three hours if not. I lost one meeting because of this.
Now, just power the laser on, perhaps select "align" (it does it automatically 5
minutes after power
on, or once a day), and print away. What, you want to print a 200 hundred pages book? Do
stopping to refill after you get 10 blank pages, or 8 with one colour missing, if I was
(the cartridge in the canon BJC 4000 is small).
The money is worth the ease of mind, quality of living, however you call it. In fact, the
cost in euros is not much higher per page.
