    Just wondering what everyone uses....I have an HP 3650 that's great but the Mac job manager printer application is hell. If not on the list, check other and state who it is. I only put ones I could think of, so there are probably a lot of others. Enjoy! Oh, and you can select more than one.

    I use a networked HP LaserJet 2200. It works great except for the occasional paper jam. :)

    Samsung here. Works still even after I spilled orange juice in it, and has never jammed up once. I bought it because it had "Linux" support. Works great on Mac OS X though.

    HP Colour LaserJet 1500 - does a good job for a cheapo colour laser. Doesn't play too nicely with Mac though. :(

    and

    Epson Stylus Photo R310 - does a great job with photos and is pretty economical with ink. Plays nicely with Mac. :)

    I use the printer at work! (2 HP laserjets)

    Haven't owned a printer since a HP inkjet in 1996. Which was AWFUL

    I hate epson printers, i always had problems with them. HP printers are ok i guess but i would recommend canon, it seems the pay more attention to quality which is more important then how cheap it is.

    I've never had an HP which got anywhere close to colour fidelity. My 3000 is getting a bit long in the tooth, and I'd love to be able to replace it with an HP 120 A1 printer for plans, but as I want to be able to do the occasional photo as well, I don't fancy taking a £1,000 chance.

    I have an epson stylus colour something. its ancient, but good enough.

    I also have a kyocera mita FS 1010. Its noisy, but damn reliable. Its hooked up to the router via ethernet. several thousand pages have been through it, and never have i had a page jam.



    and he loves you too

    Brotherly love -- such a rare thing these days. :)

    Another opportunity to say how much I appreciate our ancient HP LaserJet 5MP. You can't beat it with a stick. Our almost-new Sumsung color laser is another story. I wish I'd never bought it.

    I have two printers, both HP. The first is an aging Business Inkjet 2200. It's served me well for over 6 years now and is still going great. I had to install some drivers for it from linuxprinting.org to get it to work with OS X, however, and the photo performance is not so great. Still fast and pretty for text, though.

    So since Photography is a hobby of mine, I received an HP Photosmart 8750 for a Christmas present. It's an awesome photo printer, and it can print up to 13x19, which is pretty cool.

    I love my HP Laserjet 1020. Especially now that it's spontaneously learned how to remove prior print jobs from its print queue. :cool:

    *looks suspiciously at learning printer*

    have two:

    HP: deskjet 6940, which i just got- so far, its excellent.

    Epson: R2400 photo printer. Love the 9 inks (8 at once) and the ability to print huge :D

    I love HP printers. My previous HPs have included a little photosmart that did pretty well, but the real prize winner is my old Deskjet 812C, which I had for about 10 years.

    It worked flawlessly for 9.5 years whenever winblows didn't screw with the drivers.

    None. If I ever need anything printed off I do it at work and misuse company resources. :eek: :cool:

    Apple all the way

    I use an Apple Laserwriter Select 360.

    At least until the toner runs out, when it might be cheaper to buy a new printer....
