A couple of weeks ago, my third el-cheapo inkjet in as many years turned into a pile of useless plastic crap.
I’m not #@%ing around anymore.
I bought it at a computer show for approximately what 3 cartridges would have cost me for my old inkjet. It sits in a back room, where its bulk and noise don’t bother me, produces crisp text and solid color graphics, fast, and has a network print server and Adobe Postscript built in. It uses more electricity than I’d like, so it’ll be turned off most of the time.
There’s something the technicians need to learn from the artists.
If it isn’t aesthetically pleasing, it’s probably wrong.
