Mom’s Comparison and final decision: Well, I have flat printed some stuff the past few weeks. icon smile What is an Office Without a Printer? I have done pictures, documents, scanned, copied, etc etc etc!  The boys have had a blast with the internet on the HP printer and I have really enjoyed the top loading on the Epson.

I like both home office printers and the inks run about the same price.  So, I had to decide which one I would actually get more use out of.  I have an all-in-one that is connected to my desk top computer that is hooked to my router for faxes, so the multi-page fax is not an issue for me.

The Epson is definitely quieter, but the boys really love the internet option and the touch-smart of the HP.  All-in-all, I would recommend either printer depending on your budget and your needs.

I am keeping the HP in the kitchen with my laptop and sending the Epson to the local high school. icon smile What is an Office Without a Printer?

  1. Huh! I thought printers had hit a plateau of evolution with wireless access, and I’ve set up the ability to print from anywhere via 3rd-party software, but it didn’t even dawn on me to think of the possibility that there should be internet access built into the printer. Cool :)
