I used to have an HP laser printer. It was solid and heavy and it
always printed. Even if it was almost out of ink, it printed
something.

Now I have two Epson ink jets, and if the color cartridges are
empty, they don't print. So I can't print. I don't think the machine
should decide whether or not to print - I think I should! ;-)

And the newer one... if the paper is misaligned, it prints for about
5 minutes, one line of symbols per sheet. The last time this
happened, it printed 55 pages! It's insane.

Like I said, the photo prints are fine, if I make the right
adjustments to the software AND put in the right paper AND make sure
there are two sheets of paper in the tray at any given time so the
printer doesn't go insane. I printed out 50 color photo covers on
glossy paper for my poetry chapbook with that printer, and they're
beautiful. I think it took me 3 days and 2 color cartridges.

I could have used Kinko's color laser printer and done the job in an
hour or so, for about the same price.
