I’m not a printer person, really. I break them. I’ve had a computer of some form or another since 1983, and in that time I’ve owned 3 printers.
Now I have the fourth, an HP Photosmart C6180, and it is a thing of glory. It faxes, it scans, it does photo prints from memory cards, it makes words appear on paper fast, and it’s even 802.11g wireless so I didn’t have to get an Ethernet cable to it. I suspect it may be smarter than I am. The windows software is incredibly invasive – what is it with everything you install these days wanting to install an auto-update startup app? – but once I got it wrangled into submission it stopped bugging me.
Printers are not sexy, and they are a thing I rarely think about, but this one… two thumbs up.
