Which economical multifunction printer?

  thewasp 14:30 05 Dec 2007

I recently purchased an Epson DX5000 multifunction printer.

But I am very disappointed in the chipped cartridge system - it must be making Epson millions.

I have been using compatibles which of course are cheap enough, but the last colour ones I used weren't recognised, rendering the whole printer unusable, even though I only wanted to print black! This in turn caused delays and inconvenience.

Without going down the road of refillables or ciss, or even chip resetters, I really want an economical printer with a decent ink capacity in their cartridges, probably aimed more for business use.

But not another Epson!

I am sure you will get many different opinions, I can only tell you of my finding. I use it simply as a general purpose machine.
