    I am buying a new printer since my HP Photosmart 7760 doesn't work with AEBS. I want to hook it up to the USB on the base station and I dont want to spend more than $150. I was looking at the HP Deskjet 5650 and the 5850. Does anyone have either of these two printers and do they work well with AEBS? What about Cannon or Epson? Thanks for the help!

    What do you use the printer for? Photos? Text, combination? each brand/model is better at some and worse at others. IMO there is no one printer that is great at everything.

    I like Epson Photo printers for photos, but for text, they are not so hot. HP can be good at either, but it depends on model.

    I am going to be using it to to print essays for school and thats about all. I am only going to have for two years and then I will get a new one for college.
