Printers Comrade 01/10/2021 (Sun) 02:13:21 No. 6957
My printer is on the way out after having practically taken it apart to fix it in the past. Im tired of spending so much on ink and im tired of these scams with built in planned obsolescence like hidden cleaning sponges that you need to refill and inaccessible paper grippers that get hard and slippery. Does anyone have advice on what printer to buy and what works good for not getting screwed by ink scam?
>>6957 In general, it is probably best to research the things that you need for your use case. What do you plan to do with it? print pamphlets, print a one-off school report? There are ways, for instance, to replace the print head of cartridges with a continuous ink head, or to replace/reflash the sensor chips on toner cartridges to keep the cartridges usful and pour more toner into the feeders. >Im tired of spending so much on ink and im tired of these scams with built in planned obsolescence like hidden cleaning sponges that you need to refill and inaccessible paper grippers that get hard and slippery. In general, this means having to shell out for some high-quality models suited for mass production. See if you can't get a large photocopier/printer secondhand somewhere.
