Cheap Inkjet Printer?
      #420422 - 01/05/16 03:57 PM

I'm in the market for a cheap inkjet printer, suitable for a 30 day TDY gig. WiFi a plus but it'd be good to have a USB connection too in case the WiFi is flaky. Color unnecessary. Approx. $50 would be great.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I might consider this BROTHER. You will spend more on the ink.

I have not seen a strictly monochrome inkjet printer in a long time.

Mase - Thanks. Unbelievable what they pack in a $60 box, with pretty good reviews.

Great price, too. It's $99 on Newegg.

Thanks, Ken. The $100 is a bit above my price point but it looks like a great machine.

My Florida month doing CFI/II stuff is at Pompano mid-Feb to mid-March. Please arrange for good weather.

This doesn't have anything to do with spring training does it? :-))))

I don't have much experience with inkjet printers. But I know I've fired up my mother's Canon inkjet after it had sat for well over a year - and it still printed. The quality wasn't great, but I was impressed that the cartridges hadn't all dried up.

Much better luck than I've had with Brother and Epson...if you don't pull a color print once a week, it's not gonna be there when you do.

I wish it did. The one Mets game that might be played when I can attend is a week after the end of my course and hopefully the last checkride will be in the books by then and I'll be heading home.

Not long now until pitchers and catchers!

(Yes, I checked out the schedules a few weeks ago.)

I'm on my third Canon PIXMA inkjet printer in 15 or so years. We can go 2-3 weeks without printing, and then when we do, it fires right up. Look most inkjet printers, the ink is very expensive, but I've been really pleased that with the six separate ink wells, it's been a good unit.
