By quality, i mean actual *print* quality doesn't have to be great. I don't print often, and when I do print, its like a concert ticket or something that still requires paper proof. Ideally, I'd like a printer that is the size of the Neat Company's single document scanner. Even if it only printed black and one sheet at a time, then I could store it. So- does anyone have a good suggestion for something that exists now that is close? Hopefully under $100, but willing to pay a bit more than $100 if...
My old inexpensive Canon 8400F was a great scanner — flatbed for paper, negative holder for film, and it also had software that let it double as a copier. It only did 4800dpi, but that's enough for my needs.
But the drivers aren't Lion compatible, so I'm shopping for a replacement. And the major scanners like the Epson V700 are expensive, in the $500 range. Any bargains out there?
I'm thinking of getting a new printer when my current Canon runs out of ink next as it seems like we are always replacing the inks.
I'm looking at the Epson Artisan 730 and Epson Stylus NX430 because of there Airprint ability. But I'm not sure if the claims of "Approx. Black 330 pages, Colour Composite 510 pages" (730) and "Approx. Black 255 pages, Colour Composite 350 pages" (NX430) are good numbers? And also if the two extra tanks in the 730 will make it's cost per page higher or lower?
This is going to be for home use. I don't care if it's a laser or not but I'd prefer it not to be huge and heavy.
I'm looking to buy a printer for a non profit theater company. Right now they are using an HP color Laserjet CM2320nf, which takes $125 per cartridge. we do fairly minimal printing from it. Is this a good solution, or would an ink based unit work better?
