Black cartridge is about $8 ???

Yeah Hoppy the cartridges are from a after market place that sells both and I think mine are about $12 a pop so 5 x $12 hum not funny eh and if they were genuine - double that and it costs almost as much as the printer did in the first place

I can hit black but it still goes through all that cleaning rot - colours nearly all empty now and I only ever print docs as a matter of course.

I couldn't resist.

I do mostly B&W.

It has just one color cartridge so pictures are not as good on 8x10in. size. They get fuzzy. The 5x7 do good.

Trade off of cheaper B&W docs but poorer quality color photos.

Personally, I find my local photo lab can print colour images far cheaper than I can and for that reason I'm seriously considering buying a mono (black and white) laser printer.

Yeah SV reckon you are right I don't do a lot photos anyway - I bought this device specifically for the CD print capabilities.

Didn't think it through too well eh?

Now I am annoyed with me

Of course he did get a reply to his 1st post in 1 minute, and his problem was solved in 10 minutes LOL, so he has a skewed view

on printers

way off topic but who cares .... discussion above.
I have a low cost laser printer for B&W and use generic cartridges. I find it beats inkjet in terms of value hands down.
I have a cheap canon inkjet for color and the cartridges are very expensive. It's mainly used for my sons school work.

For photos I use the BIGW photo processing. They use Fuji machines and you can't get a calibrated photo print but I fudge it with smaller dirt cheap prints until I get my Photoshop settings right. Then do a big print.

Excuse me MJF!
The Thread is What annoys you and the above annoys me.
If you are having a printer or ink discussion start a new post!

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
