Which printer do you use and why?
« on: September 16, 2023, 03:33:05 AM »
A few years ago i bought an HP DeskJet 3760 but never took to it. Their suggestion was that you could use it from a number of devices. With mobile connectivity I never succeeded, it has been a big disappointment/

1. I assume they meant via WiFi or Bluetooth. Basic requirement is that all devices should be on the same network/router.

2. See answer #1.

The manual should explain the details. Company web site is a great second choice. YouTube search quite often results in a vid or two.

As for your question, we have had several Brother multi-function black & white printers using third-party toner. For color, we've had a couple of Epson, but now I really like Canon with third-party ink. All have been on our WiFi (and Airprint) network, shared by computers, iPhones and iPads. :thumbup:

When I had my home office, years ago, I had a trusty Apple Laser Printer which was the best printer I ever owned. Eventually, I wanted to print color and I purchased the Epson Photo Printer. Every time I wanted to print something, I had to run it through its cleaning cycle in order to get the color correct. After going through a bunch of ink, I tossed it out and started using one of the places in town, like Kinko's to get color work done.

Boy that seems so long ago…
