Re: [Rant] HP Photosmart Premium eAll-in_one C310a

I got sick of inkjet printers and their unquenchable thirst for ink. Even if you don't use it often it still goes through ink because it must run through a periodic cleaning cycle to keep the supply of ink to the print head fresh to avoid clogging (which often happens anyways).

So I picked up a Brother HL-1230 laser printer for free that someone was going to toss. Popped in a $30 toner cartridge from eBay. That's what I've been using for the last 4 years and I still haven't had to fill the toner. Works great.

Monochrome laser is the way to go if you're only printing documents and don't need color. Try to get something that doesn't have chips on the toner cartridges. Chips are a pain in the butt.
