I'm looking into replacing my still-defunct Epson inkjet
with an HP inkjet (based mostly on comments in this e-list).
both colour and excellent text (print) quality are mandatory.
(ATM, that rules affordable lasers.)
the unit which has currently caught my eye is the HP C6180,
for four-ish reasons: it's currently on sale locally (for
what works out to be essentially the USA price (but only
until the end of this week!)), it has separate cartridges
for each colour, it is also a scanner, and a (quick) search
suggests both the printer and scanner work with Linux (at
least over USB, which is how I will be connecting to it).
that same quick search suggests the negative comments fall
into two categories: crap Windross and/or WiFi software
(don't care); and inflated speed claims (HP says 32(?)ppm,
real world says slow to start up and then prints c.12ppm
(another don't really care)).
does anyone have any comments or suggestions, good, bad,
or otherwise? (it will be connected, via USB(-1), to a
SUSE 9.2 box.)
