My inkjet printer is an Epson Stylus Photo 1280, which I've had for many years. I don't recall exactly how many, but, as it dates back to the early days of my consulting business and a need to print out B-sized (11x17", tabloid, ledger) schematics at home, it's got to be around a decade.
Anyway, it's on its last legs. Having been a $400-or-so serious printer instead of a $99 throwaway, it lasted pretty well, but it needs at least disassembly and aggressive cleaning, and maybe a new printhead... assuming such a thing can be had.
The replacement, of similar size and capability, appears to be the Artisan 1430, at $300. Keeping to the Stylus Photo family, it'd be the R2000, currently on sale direct from Epson for $500 (retailers seem to want $700 or so). There's also the Expression XP-950, $250 at Fry's and a bit less on Amazon; it looks like a tidy little package, includes a scanner, and, alas, has a rather bigger footprint (and I'm not sure how much space it takes up when actually in use).
But what's this? There's the Workforce 7xxx line, starting at $150 for print-only, that looks reasonably capable, including the requisite paper size, and supposedly has much improved print speed. Dunno about durability, but that line is supposed to be for office use. Main drawback seems to be the rather large footprint, but reducing my paper accumulation by one stack would free up enough space, I think.
And I really want something even bigger - like, big enough to handle C- or even D-size paper. But it's not in the budget this year, and besides I have no place to put such a thing. Maybe next year, if I relocate and have a decent-sized workspace.
Technically, a new inkjet printer is a business expense, what with it being used darn near 100% for work stuff. Dunno what the IRS, and TurbotAx, will have to say about it.
