gotta get a new color printer/scanner/fax/copier thingy.
my old HP8500 technically still works, but the copy feeder doesn't. it drinks ink like a wino goes through ripple. HP doesn't fix anything and doesn't even make replacement parts available. i have a hard time continuing to buy from them, now that they consider all of their product lines to be disposable. items their warranty offer to me was a replacement printer for $50 more than i paid in the first place, but shipping would be free. thanks HP. also their customer service is a cranky guy in india reading from a script in an endless loop, regardless of what you ask him.
so, canon, xerox, some other brand? inkjet? laserjet? micromanage my office equipment
and yes, i really do still need fax functionality
