Is there a reliable printer?
« on: October 09, 2016, 07:13:29 PM »
hello!

All the printers I have owned, around 10, all failed at some point prematurely. I don't do harsh treatment, but they all had problems, either with the printing quality or the paper handling, or the communication, etc etc.

Is there a reliable printer that will be robust? I need it to be wireless and duplex and color ofcourse.

Most importantly, it must not break! even if it is not used regularly, or for whatever reason.

thanks!

inkjet printers are finicky.  if you want a reliable printer get yourself a laser printer and use it for most of your printing needs.

That's not very informative.

What brand(s) & models have failed you most recently?

...And how did they fail?

Paper handling issues are most frequently caused by warn pickup rollers/separation pads, bad (or moist) media, and driver misconfiguration.
