I think HP is one of the best brands. I have owned several different brands, and have had the best luck with HP.

They say that canon is also good. But thanks anyway for the information. I am still choosing between canon and HP.

I have got a canon bubblejet printer. It scans and photocopies as well and only cost about $100 (australian)That is pretty good and the cartridges are reasonably cost effective.

Is the bubble jet printer also an inkjet type? Or is it more like a laser?

Well I think that rules out Epson. Thanks for sharing your experience with your printer. I would not want that to happen to me.

What are you going to be printing? I have two HP Printers, and I personally love them (however, I own a Mac, not a PC, so that may make a difference).

Well I think HP Printers are good. But I think the ink costs a lot doesn't it? Is the resolution quite good for printing photos? But most of the time I will just be printing documents.

I have a Epson 800. It's fantastic. A little expensive, but a fine printer, one of the best.

First you have to decide whether you want inkjet (inexpensive), laserjet (slightly expensive), dot matrix ( expensive but durable and less recurring cost). I have HP's deskjet which costs around $100 and catridge is the expensive. You have to buy both colour and black and white to put the printer into best use and it costs $50 for two. Laster jet printer is expensive and catridge is almost same as inkjet. cheapest is dotmatrix (printer costs more), but ribbon is $2 and its lasts 500 pages of A4 page and refill is $1. For high quality resolutions, laser is best, but cost?

Thanks for the information. I might just get an inkjet printer because a laser printer cost much. But I don't think that there are available dot matrix printers nowadays. I think they are already obsolete. Thanks again and have a nice day!

i think it depends on your need.If you need more documents to be printed then go for hp,if you need quality pictures then go for canon

I might just take your advice and go for a canon printer. Thanks for responding to the discussion.

If it's for personal use, I think you should look at the price. The quality doesn't vary so much...If you use it for professional photography...you need to look at ti's performances

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. It's only for personal use. I only print photos sometimes because they cost too much ink to print.

I think you should buy a Canon printer. They are cheaper than HP or Epson ones, quality is great, they are fastest than others. When you buy a cartdrige or inkjet it's expensive and maybe you can recharge too your cartdrides! I own a beautiful Canon IP 4000 that prints on cd-rom and dvd-r too!

Thank you for sharing that information about canon. I will try to check their models and maybe compare it with HP. I am now trying to choose between canon and HP.

Does Epson printers use a lot of ink? Their printers are also reasonable.

I've owned three HP's and have loved them. The ink (color and Black) is very reasonable price wise. I'd highly recommend HP.

i would rather recommend HP Printer. Be it an inkjet or a laser. I've been using HP printers for almost a decade. in my office im using a hp color laserjet... it's magnificient!... then, an all-in-one series PSC (Printer/Scanner/Copier) is being used by myself in my home, it's cool. HP has lots of features to economize ink/toner! GO!
