    I thought I got a good deal on my HP printer... until I had to buy the replacement ink cartridges. $60 for b/w and color! :mad: :angry1: :o

    isn't it funny that if you go off of the replacement costs of the cartridges, you realize that over half the cost of the printer must be those 2 little cartridges full of ink.... strange huh?

    I understand they got some moron on the line (most likely from another country) and satisfaction was less than adequate. But to HP's credit, when they found out about it, they made it very right. Nothing like a little pressure on a co. to make them perform though. Most of the time it is operator error, rather than equipment malfunction. I get to deal with that all day long......

    I agree most problems (as with computers or any electrical device these days) are the humans error. Computers are designed for a certain task, printers an even more specific task. Humans, I don't think we are designed for any task in particular.... Anyway, I still think modern printers and especially those all in ones seem a little complex for what they are, they seem to get more complex as computers become simpler.

    The problem is, when a company tries to make a printer like AOL. They want to make it do everything for you. They put in a little LCD screen, a card reader, etc. etc. They are almost computers these days. Anybody who can afford a super complex printer can afford a nice CPU so no need for complex printers. I prefer to review my pics on the nice monitor, and plug my cards into my CPU thank you.........
