Definately HP. My Epson all-in-one printer has HORRIBLE head-clogging issues. From what I read it'* typical for Epson printers.

HP for the inkjet. Hands down. hp owns the US and world market for a reason.

Sorry for the confusion everyone, I presently have an inkjet and I want to get a laser. I'll recheck to see if I did indeed say I wanted a injet instead.

I agree there are many reasons Hp owns the market. I have been servicing them for years and the cost to repair is better than any other maker. My philosophy is not how much does this cost but how much will the POS cost me to fix when it breaks.

In the long run it is better IMO to just buy HP.

I don't service the Phaser. I hear they are good. Costly though. The boxes I service are way too large and expensive for home use. 65-90ppm, usually with finishers. No one wants a printer/copier thats larger than the console televisions we all grew up with

I'm not about to reccomend a dell (lexmark) printer. most of the dell printers work ok but NOT the color laserjets..at least the cheap ones. the low-end hps are a MUCH better bet.

toner for the hps is more expensive though. dells are cheaper but HP'* seem to have less problems with streaking and defective drums (problems the lexmarks have on the low end models)

toshiba on the other hand OWNS hp in the color printer segment IMO at least they did a few years ago, price/performance was way higher.

I run only HP printers at my house, I have a 14 year old laser printer that still works, it has over 100,000 pages on it and over 10,000 pages on the toner cartridge. its only rated at 5000 or so if I recall.

My dad as a 2000 vintage color inkjet (medium level $150 inkjet at the time) after replacing the cartridges more than 10 times it still prints like new.

Dell unlike HP does NOT engineer the printer technology. they BUY lexmarks design and rebadge them. I hate lexmark printers due to all the problems I've seen others have. I also have seen SEVERAL cheap color lasers have problems in my office. every other dell laser printer was fine except 4 of the cheap ones..all the same model..all the cheapest of the cheap, they all had the same problem and failed within 3 years.

Well I think in conclusion, I won't be able to find a good all in one Laser Printer for around $300.00 Canadian so I'm going to have to try to reinstall the software to that it'* compatable with XP. Canon wasn't to helpfull the first time around but I'll have to trace my steps when I did it last time.

Thanks everyone

You could try and sneak one over the border when you are returning from NEBF.
