    All in one printers - Which one of these two?

    Hey all, I have to have one of these machines in my home by Friday but I don't know which one would be better. I need a fax, scanner and a copier. I was leaning toward the HP but I heard their software isn't that good. And the Canon has separate ink cartridges that last longer. If you had to pick one?

    Oh hell, last week they had this one in stock.

    Yeah I'm going with the Canon. You know that stupid friggin company Buy.com is sending me two printers.
    When I asked them about why they said I ordered two but not on the same purchase? My receipt reads ONE PRINTER bought not two.

    So I just printed out a RMA so I can return it. That's the first
    problem I've ever had with buy.com.

    I use one single criteria. Cost per page, versus quality per page to end-of-life.

    Canon will be cheaper to run, because they keep the same print head for life, and just replace the ink tanks. HP on the other hand, replaces the printhead with each new ink cartridge. More expensive but, for draft quality, you can swap out a cheap, or refilled cartridge, and for finished product pop in the fresh brand name one. Canon printers will degrade over time, with nothing to do but replace the entire printer. HP will print like brand new everytime.

    The point being, cost-quality-lifecycle.
    You can talk about "that" here

    Remember that guy your mom warned you about? I beat the snot outta him.
