It's still working but the cartridge is already obsolete and I have gone through several refills on my last cartridge. It served me well for 12 yrs I need to replace it now with a printer that is basic since I rarely print documents. My budget is only 3k maximum. My priority is is durability.

    Meron ako nung canon pixma, pinaconvert ko siya sa unlimited ink and I buy refill ink which costs 70petot sa recto. Isang refill ng ink kaya magprint ng up to 2,000+ pages. Haha.

    Here's the problem. Ink jet printers are cheap. But you will need to use them often enough so the ink will not dry up in the nozzles/print-head.

    The solution, get a LASER PRINTER. The cheapest ones are around P3,500 each with a toner capacity of around 1500 copies. You can leave this unused for a whole year then fire it up for a quick document print out with no issues (except if a rodent or family of roaches made it as their home).

    Printer conversions are not recommended in C4U's case since she does not print on a regular basis. It would end up clogged and bubbles in the hoses.

    ^ natetengga din yung akin pero di pa naman sira. Going 3 years na siya. Downside lang is naglileak na yung ink ngayon. Oh what the heck, hinihintay ko lang naman na masira na ng tuluyan para bumili ako ulit nung 3 in 1. Haha.

    Basta kahit ano mangyari wag na wag kayo bibili ng brother na printer, nakatatlo na kami at nasira lahat.

    At our office, since we need a printer for color, I got an EPSON L100. It was fine in the most part except it was quite slow.

    Previously we used a Canon IP1800 series printer with ICS kit. It worked fine except that I needed to replace the cartridge (color or black) around every 3 weeks or I had to run cleaning cycle often to keep the prints clear and bright. Basically it needed quite a bit of attention from me.

    The EPSON L100 was better in that it only needed its ink refilled and that's it. Once in a rare while, I might need to do a cleaning cycle but it's still a far cry from what I was doing with the Canon. Since the L100 was slow and we needed color prints quickly, I bought another unit, an EPSON L110 which was it's newer model and a bit faster too.

    Kailangan ko na rin ng bagong printer, pangit na output ng printer ko ngayon. Same lang sa needs ni cathy, document printing, usually b&w pero syempre may colored din once in a while.

    Ano kaya pinaka-ok na laser printer tapos under 4k? Ok kasi sinabi ni GH, pwede iiwan ng matagal na hindi natutuyo, thats what i need.

    Generally I would say HP laserjet printers are better but I haven't checked lately if their prices have fallen below the P4000 level. I know they are still sold at the P5000 price range and up.

    Canon and Samsung have a P3500 level laser printer.
