Bought a new printer today.
The 3 in 1 printer I had, which I've been happy with, was a Brother MFC. I bought it awhile back for about $100. Well I needed to print out an important document last night and the printer informed me that it was out of blue ink and I needed to replace the blue (cyan) cartridge. I told it black only was ok, I don't need blue. It said, "Replace the blue cartridge!" and refused to do anything else.
So I went to Best Buy today to get a blue cartridge so I could print out my black and white document. I figured I better get cartridges for all the other colors too while I'm there. Ya know, keep the printer happy. Well the cost of the 4 cartridges was $100! "What? What else you got for printers?" For $150 I walked out with a brand new, latest model HP Photosmart Premium loaded with way more features and it will even allow me to print a black and white document when I'm out of blue. Comes with full cartridges and the replacement ink cartridges cost half.
I loaded the software, turned it on, welcomed it into my home and it responded that it was ready to serve me.
Sorry Brother, you're outta here!
