Buying new printer

Recommended Posts

Guest ml

You got some great deals! :) They were practically giving stuff away before the holidays and it was a great time to go printer and print paper shopping.

 

Congratulations! That's great camera. You're going to be able to take some great pictures with that zoom and low light capabilities.

 

One note of caution: You're probably going to need the adapter that comes with your Memory Stick (Pro) Duo. I had the unfortunate experience of having a friend put a memory stick in the computer's card reader without the adapter, and the memory card reader ATE IT!

 

I finally got it out by finding and inserting the adapter, wiggling it around til it grabbed the memory stick ( backwards ), and it pulled out easily. Luckily neither the card or the reader was damaged. ( The local computer store was going to disassemble the computer for around $200 to get it and they couldn't guarantee that the reader wouldn't be damaged.)

Thanks for the tip. My son bought me a 1G card for the camera. I mentioned the adapter and he bought that too. Thanks!

 

Glad you got everything sorted out

 

BUT, bear in mind

 

Do NOT stand in front of the moving cars when taking happy snappies :)

HA - As a matter of fact, at the last event I attended I did my best to get REALLY close to the track and was apprehended by track security. They gave me the same advice you just did !!

Wonder if HP is changing their strategy or just a few models? My first inkjet was an HP that wasn't even color! :) Back in those days, it was really easy to refill the cartridges yourself.

 

 

 

 

:huh:

I too have been concidering buying a new printer.

 

Epson StylusPhoto R220/5760x1440dpi 15ppm usb2 looks interesting at arround £70.00

 

The good thing for Home movie makers is that it gives you the choice to print photos/labels directly onto printable cd or dvd disks.

 

I might get one myself.

I have an Epson R220. Makes very nice pictures on photo paper, and does a nice job printing directly to printable discs. Just make sure you let the ink dry before spinning up the disc. If you don't, it turns into "spin art".

Question, how long does that take, letting the ink dry?

I think you'll get better (truer) colors on the white media.

 

I saw the HP 5160 at Staples for $89 and thought

I would go for one! Now I know what media to order.

 

Thanks Dave,

You will like the printer. Get the #99 color photo cartridge for picture if you do that kind of stuff. Also, they have #100, which is gray scale photo cartridge that I have used on black and white pictures and it come out nicer that with the regular cartridges. It does do a nice job on CD/DVDs, which, that with the photos are the main reason I got it. I use the laser for everything else. Faster and automatic duplex.
