Printer

We've needed a new color printer for a while now and I was fairly sure that I would go with a color laser printer because of their dependability and beautifully clear print qualities.

Choosing the right printer usually comes down to the price of the printer and the price you'll need to pay to replace ink or toner cartridges after the low capacity cartridges that come with the printer go empty.

I take more pictures with my smartphone than I make calls with it. I rarely take a stand alone camera with me on vacations, parties or family events. The majority of the pictures I take stay on my phone and don't get shared with friends or family. Sure, I can go home and print the… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More
