HP to hike upfront price of printer hardware as ink biz growth runs dry

Anonymous South African Coward Silver badge

I have had too many issues with crapjets (epson, hp et al) that I now totally avoid crapjets of any make, model, manufacturer etc.

I prefer a laser printer. Sure, may be more expensive, but it works just as well, and it can idle for long periods of time (not in use) without the head getting all dried up and clogged up.

The old HP inkjet printerers was fine kit, nowadays the kit you get is so flimsy and feel like it's going to fall apart at the first fart.

Started off with an Epson LX400, fine dot-matrix printer. NLQ was just a waste of time and ribbon, tend to print in draft most of the time, was quicker and readable as well. Ah, those were the days.
