epson950

Sometime around 1975, it was suggested that because of computers, paper would become obsolete.  It hasn't happened yet and I find myself buying a new printer every now and again.  I've never been completely satisfied by the output quality or performance of my purchases, but maybe things will change now that I have the XP-950 [...]

There are so many printers on the market that choosing the right one can be a real chore. For basic home use, I've found using a printer/scanner combination fits my needs just fine, so we picked up an Epson XP-400 simply because it was on sale and did not have many bells and whistles that [...]

I have been using a Polaroid PoGo printer for a couple of years to print pictures to stick in my journal. They don't print the best, but the printer is small and I don't have to worry about the ink drying up because it doesn't use ink. It uses special ZINK Zero-Ink color thermal paper. I'm [...]

Come on admit it, you really want one! Well I do anyway, and the field of 3D printers is getting better and cheaper.  We reported on the Makerbot Thing-o-matic in August last year, a "consumer" 3D printer for $1299 at the time.

I've been a fan of DYMO label printers for years. I still use their  Twin Turbo label and stamp printer which I reviewed 6 years ago (see related posts at the bottom of this review). They recently asked if I would be interested in reviewing their LabelManager 500TS. The TS stands for touch screen. Let's see if [...]

For many years (decades?) we've heard about the paperless office, but more and more it appears that technology is driving use to use MORE paper.

I was thinking about purchasing a label maker on and off for years.  This past winter I remodeled our TV space into a media room. This included laying many wires throughout that room and the house as a whole. The entire time I wished I had a label maker (instead of a fine tipped, permanent [...]
