My HP Photosmart C6280 printer has developed a fault that I can't seem to get fixed, so I'm looking for a new printer
Ideally I'd like something that uses the HP 363 series cartridges as I have a few stockpiled, but I'm willing to buy something else if the price is right.
It's a while since I bought a printer, so I'm a little out of the loop, so what's the best value that has the following
all in one, printer & scanner (no fax required)
Low cost or compatible cartridges, would rather just buy ink tanks rather than the whole head
networking (wired or wireless, but wired would be better)
duplex would be good, but not essential
a little screen would be good, but not essential
I'd rather not buy a lexmark, as they're cheap but the ink is expensive
I bought an HP Deskjet 3070A as reviewed on PCA, I have to say that the setup was really easy, and it uses HP's E Print service, so you can email documents to the printer from anywhere and they'll be printed by the time you get home, it also integrates with Google's Cloud Print service so you can print direct from the Chrome browser from any PC.
Now we get to the weirdness. My previous venerable Photosmart C6180 made it's journey to landfill because the Magenta print head failed. Guess what, the magenta cartridge in the new HP printer steadfastly refused to work despite numerous cleans.
So back to PC world this morning and I swapped it for a Kodak C315, this also has the cloud & email print feature, and the setup was equally easy, and the magenta ink works...
