I’ve gotten tons of great recommendations for products on the SDMB, and I don’t see why this should be any different.
Long story short, I quit my job and am going back to school full-time. I need an all-in-one printer at home. This printer should:
[li]Print color with reasonable quality[/li][li]Print black and white text with reasonable speed[/li][li]Have Wi-Fi capabilities[/li][li]Work effortlessly with both PC and Mac (Ubuntu would be nice too, but not necessary)[/li][li]Be able to scan and copy (feeder scanning is preferable; I don’t care about faxing)[/li][li]Not cost a fortune in ink[/li][/ul]
Also, I’d prefer inkjet to keep the cost down, but if a really good argument can be made for laserjet, I could go that route. I’m looking to spend no more than $160.
Consumer Reports listed the HP Photosmart 7520 as their best recommendation, however, a lot of people have complained on Apple’s shopping website that HP’s software utilities are complete crap and that the Wi-Fi loses connection every hour. Consumer Reports’ user ratings also aggregate at 2/5 stars. Does anyone have opinions about this model?
In general, can you recommend any good home office printers based on the above criteria? Thank you so much.
