Id be interested to find out as well.

Saving a draft from this comment ads it to your draft list.

The only way I have found to access it later is to do a dummy draft, which calls up your draft topic list , which can be accessed/ copied.

Yes, i do use it for printing out card kits. It works very well for that purpose. I did do a test between laser and inkjet, as at work we have both HP lasers and high end inkjets. For card kits/brick papers it was hard to say one was better than the other.

That's one of the ones I was thinking of, do you use it to print out scalescenes or textures?

I have a Brother HL L 8260 CDW laser printer. Currently 235. Crucially mine came with full toner cartridges, none of these quarter filled starter cartridges. About two years later they are still a third full. It sits under my desk and has never given me a moment of trouble. It even accepts AirPrint from my iThings.

Thanks for reporting.  Hopefully a one off and the server was having a slow couple of minutes.  :)

Inkjets have a built in suicide switch - a reservoir for excess ink during printing, when it is full, it may be impossible to remove it without dismantling the whole printer!!



Lasers are an investment in long term peace of mind! ( I have a Brother L8410) - clone carts are available, but they killed my Kyocera, so I'm sticking to the Real Thing.

For typical intermittent home use a Laserjet is the way to go, or drop in excess 600 on a seriously good, large format inkjet printer.

We have had our HP Laserjet for 4 years now and I'm just getting round to replacing some of the colour toner cartridges. We've gone through a couple of black one's but my wife likes to file things on paper rather than on a computer. None of the toner cartridges have ever clogged up.

I've also got an HP T120 large format printer, it's an inkjet but the cartridges and print head are better quality than a typical desktop Inkjet printer. I've had that 4 years as well and only use it intermittently, for printing out full size layout plans! I've replaced the black cartridge but none of them have ever clogged up.

The question Id ask myself is how often youre going to use it. Inkjets are prone to clogging with intermittent use, which can ultimately destroy the printer (or at least make repair uneconomical). A laser will be far more stable. If youre not using it frequently then the cost of toner is insignificant (IMO outstripped by the cost of replacement cartridges which have dried up).

Yes it is marginally bulkier, but not in a way which really matters. The footprint is virtually identical, and its not like the extra height really matters. Neither is a thing of beauty!
