I am still using my first which came bundled with my Time PC package 6 years ago. It's a HP and although long in the tooth and slow it is fine for my light use.
One of the problems with printers seems to be failure of the printhead. However with mine the printhead is built into the cart, unlike others so I get a new one each time I replace a cart.
I have tried compatibles but now just buy out of date original HP carts from Ebay which work fine.
