Where to buy a Printer

Postby Bwis53 » Wed May 15, 2013 2:53 pm

I'm getting a new Imac. I'm going to need a new printer. Where's the best place to buy one?

I got mine here.

http://www.newegg.com/

It was a refurbished wireless model with scanner/copier for $60. Haven't had a problem with it.

My suggestion is to look up the ink prices for the models you like. Printers are cheap, but the ink prices can really vary.

I'm sorry. It should have had a "booyah!" after it.

Just being a wise-ass.

Tiger Direct.

I have been buying computer parts/supplies from them for about 15 years.

A few months ago I bought an Epson NX430 Printer/Scanner/Fax (sold out now) for $70.

Anyone get a good buy at stores in town?

You can get a decent buy on one at any of the office marts in town (Max, Depot, Staples). You'll probably save a bit if you buy the same thing from Amazon, but the margins are pretty thin on these things so it won't be much.

I'd avoid Best Buy like the plague, but that's just because I avoid Best Buy like the plague.

p.s. If you just need a printer, don't get suckered into a multifunction contraption. Sheet-fed scanners are a notorious pain in the ass and a fax machine ... well, really ... who the fuck needs a fax machine anymore?

Thanks all! I love my new Imac and I'm thrilled my old HP printer still works for my needs!
