The problem with the ink jet printers is if you don't use them often the cartridges will clog, sometimes you can clean them and they will work other times you have to replace. I switched to a laserjet a few years back due to this. I can get a lot more prints for the money.
Laser printers are a little more expensive but I feel the quality print is much better.
Yes, I agree. Ink jets are troublesome. My laser printer works when I need it. Sometimes Fran wants to make prints in color. I told her to print her drafts on the laser printer. When she is ready for color prints, she puts the images on a USB stick and goes to Staples. I understand that some people may prefer to deal with a messy, troublesome, inkjet printer rather than their spouses.
