    okay i'm now doing a ton of printing, copies, and printing addresses on envelopes.

    I'm currently using a kodak easy share 5300 but now it will hardly print black, and only prints pink with new cartridges. I think the print head is shot

    I need something decent in the $60ish dollar range, and cartridges that are around $15 for black (cheaper the better)

    so i need something that will hold up, and print alot of black pages without going dry on me every month

    Thanks for any help!

    i also have this in mind

    edit: wrong forum :eek:

    thanks!

    What about laser printers? particularly the HL2140, its on sale at best buy right now cheaper than newegg. Ink isnt too back $30-50, but can easly be refilled

    Do they really last longer than inkjet? i see they can go 2k pages, and inkjet is only rated for about 250 pages i think. on paper its a helluva lot cheaper in the long run, and all i need is black. plus if i need to, i can use the scanner from the kodak

    laser printers are good in doing bulked printing of a text.. but not so good with photos compared to InkJet.. HL2140 would pretty much hold
