Windows 7: Any new printers that use 2 ink cartridges?

28 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 7

I understand what people say about multiple ink cartridge printers. But my experience is that once one goes empty - the printer STOPS. And within a short time, each colored ink cartridge will go empty.

I don't like any Lexmark (or Dell-Lexmark) as cartridges cost higher.

I have an old Epson C60 with two ink - and non-Epson ink is relatively cheap. I have viewed the Epson site and all inexpensive inkjet printers use the 4 cartridges now.

I don't need a fancy printer with this computer. So I was looking to see if anyone had a current 2 ink printer or knows about one.

I have 5 Canon printers and was always very happy with them. One of those is an MP160 - but they are no more made. Here is a similar one that is inexpensive ($60) and has 2 cartridges: Canon U.S.A. : Consumer & Home Office : PIXMA MX320

Do laser printers have the same ink issues as inkjet printers?
I currently have an inkjet printer and although I am happy with the quality of the printing one thing really annoys me about it. I very hardly ever use my printer so the ink always drys and needs a deep clean before it will work again. This means that I can use my printers 4 times before I...
