I'm at the point where I need to bite the bullet and replace at least one printer. My HP970 died last year (excellent inkjet) and my HP3100 laserjet won't connect to my 'new' XP computer (the drivers won't work) so it only serves as a B/W copier now. I'm down to a Canon Pixma IP1700 printer that does a decent job, but drinks ink @ $21/black and about $25 for color... $57/1 color & 2 black at Sams... which only lasts a month or a little more. And this cartridge can't be manually refilled, which is a real cheater. I don't need photo printing for the most part, just good clean text and graphics, with occasional picture printing. A key is that the ink is reasonable, the black ink can be refilled by ME, and is about $150 or less. Any suggestions? Thanks! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
