Hi all..

We're Looking for a network printer that supports AirPrint and has affordable consumables. Connectable via either WiFi / Ethernet. Colour preferred by SheWhoMustBeObeyed ;-)

We currently have a Brother printer/scanner and sick of not being able to print if one colour is empty (especially when we have a full black cartridge available!

Any recommendations?

Thanks
Grant

I was told by a commercial printing place, that often buying a more expensive model, will mean cheaper consumables. The professional machines consumables aren't too badly priced apparently. It is often on the really cheap domestic models, where the printer is almost being given away, are the consumables really expensive. Most now have cartridges for the 4 main colors.

http://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=408859# looks ok... Trying to see if it will print with just a black cartridge in it.

I too would love to know if there is a printer out there that prints with black alone.

I've asked on their Facebook page. Seems like a not bad model.

We have an HP photosmart b210 and it's pretty good. Wireless, scanner, photo paper slot.
Paid $50 from DSE when it was on sale and to replace all 4 cartridges with the "XL" ones recently cost $88.


we can email it too which is pretty cool.

Not sure of the model you have but have you tried a CISS kit bought one for a mate with a new brother printer cost $40 on trademe not installed yet, but has 100ml tanks fitted into printer, door stays open.

Have used similar systems on 3 HP printers for 6 years at work and home, have saved approx $13000 in that time.

Great thing at home you dont care what gets printed at 100ml for $10

may be worth a look if printer does what you want, apart from working when 1 cart empty

Hi Sleepy. We re wanting to replace the printer anyway as it doesn't support wifi/network connection or AirPrint.

I like my Epson Artisan multifunction. I have a Rihac continuous ink system attached, cost me around $150 but I haven't needed to refill my ink tanks in something crazy like 2 years. Printing costs fell 95% and prints look the same.
