Suggest Ink tank printer

  • I'm looking to buy a new printer to replace my old epson T60 photo printer. Can anyone suggest a good brand / model to replace it with? 'yung T60 ko kasi sira na 'yung head. and mahirap maghanap + magreplace.

    looking for a cost effective and low maintenance ink tank printer, 'yung madaling mapalitan 'yung head and mura ang head.

    this is for home office use, so probably average 1 page of printing per day lang. no need for scanner/copier feature. pero ok sana kung pwede wireless printing. best kung 6 colors din sya (pero parang wala pang available according sa pag search ko sa website ng manufacturers).

  • ^ look for Epson Eco tank printer lineups. dont look at initial cost (it will be 3x more expensive than other printers out there) look at the savings you will be getting from the ink cost alone (280 pesos per color, price based on pandayan bookstore might be cheaper if bought in the epson store), its low maintenance compared to other slap-in/hacked in CISS you see out there as long as you only used official ink from epson, wag mo na tipirin yung ink na mabibili mo sa mga 3rd party ink sellers dyan.

    from personal experience alone, looking at the cartridge, usually inaabot lang ng 3-4months yung tinta (from usual printing job, 3-5 pages a day), using eco tank printers. well it usually last a year bago bumili ng bagong ink bottles for refilling

  • epson all the way
  • Our Epson L800 is turning 9yrs old in Nov... only had original inks. Superb photo printer and long lasting.
  • I bought Brother DCP-T310 as it has more features than the Epson counterpart.
    Though not heavily used, am very satisfied with it. Based on the spec sheet mas lamang sya. Also the enlarge/reduce feature is handy.

    Agree with sir polka to always used original inks. for mine, one package costs only 1.5k.

    I came from a hacked Canon MP287 CISS, sobrang hassle kasi ilang beses na nasiraan ng head you will then have to buy another head which costs roughly 2k pair.
  • yes, i'm not looking na tipirin 'yung ink. original talaga dapat para hindi magbara and magka problem. kahit yung T60 ko hindi ko nilagyan ng CISS, orig cartridge talaga for 5 years. sadly gasgas na talaga 'yung head, since 5 years ko rin nagamit.

    question on the Epson / brother ink tanks - kasi 'yung epson ko (T60) isang head lang for all colors. tapos super expensive and sobrang hirap palitan ng head compared to the other brands. same lang din ba 'yung setup ng epson ink tanks (ie. 1 head na nakabaon sa pinaka loob)? kasi if that's still the case, parang ayoko na mag epson. lol.

  • watched some youtube videos. brother and epson still has the printhead inside. so i narrowed down my choice to Epson VS HP. ano mar-recommend ninyo na brand jan sa dalawa? wireless printing capable and no need for scanner/copier.
  • Epson L3110
  • narrowed my search and leaning on getting an Canon g3000 (kasi ito lang yata avaialble ni Canon na compatible kay Mac). ok ba 'tong model na to?
