I have had a lot of trouble with printers.
In the last five years, I’ve been through three different makes and models of printers and hated every single one of them.
I don’t buy cheap models. I take the time to research and consult with the salespeople at the store. I buy name brands and still they don’t meet my needs. I am not happy with how difficult it is to simply set up the printer. The equipment is big, bulky and heavy. It takes up way too much room on the desk and the cord is always a problem. Modern printers are supposed to be entirely wireless. They are capable of linking to my computer and printing with a tap of a button. This never works. I always end up with a cord stretched between the printer and my computer. I then hit print eighteen times and beg the thing to make a single copy. If I’m really lucky, it finally starts to print and won’t stop. I then frantically remove all the paper. Since ink costs a fortune and rarely lasts longer than a week, I only print when absolutely vital. Plus, when I install a new ink cartridge, the printer needs to go through a whole alignment process that wastes both paper and ink. If it runs out of the colored ink, it won’t print at all. It doesn’t matter that I only want to print in black and white, the printer refuses. Paper jams are entirely too frequent and I get super aggravated when the printer creates an ink streak across the paperwork.
