X2.Stay away from Epson. Far, FAR away.
Going for black&white only? Color? Tons of pages, or sporadic?
Black&White: Cheap laser.
Why's that? I have an Epson C62. Cartridges are dirt-cheap because, at least for this printer, the cartridges are just dumb boxes with ink. Draft quality grayscale prints are stupidly fast.Stay away from Epson. Far, FAR away.
I've had fairly good experiences with Epson. A few years ago my dad got a C42 with a new PC (which is an OK printer for text) and a couple of years ago I got a C64 Photo, which broke and got replaced under warranty by a Photo R300 (nice photo quality printer, with direct CD printing)My EPSON is OK but bloody expensive on carts. I now always use JetTecs now.
Well, there's you're problem: it's an all-in-one. I've never come across one of those stupid things that actually works properly.I have an epson atm, the CX4800. And I have to say by far that it is the WORST printer I've ever had. I mainly use it for scanning documents (after I've signed some form or if I make a doodle and want to import into photoshop).
