What Brand of Inkjet Printer is Best?

 Home Toner Ink Fax Ribbons

Take time to read this page.  It could save you a lot of money and trouble.

We have a lot of experience using, repairing, and selling supplies for inkjet printers.  From our experience, some brands are cheaper to "feed" and repair than others.

In order from least expensive to most expensive to operate, here they are:

HP (Hewlett Packard)
Lexmark (and Compaq)

This chart gives a little more detail on why that is the case.

Brand Initial cost of printer Cost of supplies Reliability of compatible and/or remanufactured supplies Ease of repair
Canon Good Excellent Excellent Very Good
Epson Good Good Good Very Bad
HP Poor Poor Good Good
Lexmark Excellent Very Bad Poor Poor

Why we like Canon inkjet printers the best

1. Inexpensive supplies (especially if you buy a model that has separate cartridges for each color).

2. Able to use brand new, compatible (generic) supplies (they use ink tanks, which have no circuitry on them).

3. Easily replaceable print head, which does not have to be replaced when changing cartridges.  (Replace only when worn out.)

4. High print quality.

Please note that the information on this page applies only to inkjet printers, not to laser printers.
