What printer should I buy?

Episode 1479

Barry from West Los Angeles, CA

Barry needs a new printer that can print on Legal paper sizes, but can also fax. He's looking at a Brother, HP and Epson. Leo says that it depends on how much you use it. If he's rarely going to print, then a laser printer is a better choice because the ink doesn't get dried out in the nozzles. But if he's printing a lot and needs color, then an inkjet will certainly suffice. All three make good printers, but Leo prefers Epson. However, Brother makes very inexpensive yet very good laser printers.

Why is does my inkjet clog up when I try to print?

Episode 1468

Mike from Maine
Brother Color Laser Printer

Mike's color printer is clogged up. Leo says that inkjets don't work well in a low use scenario. Mike was wondering about the Epson EcoTank printer, but Leo says it's really best for higher capacity printing. If he's occasionally doing color prints, then a color laser is a better option and they are less expensive than he might think.

Brother Laser Printer

David wants a good Wi-Fi home printer. Leo says that Epson makes a great color printer. Brother makes a good laser printer that's very inexpensive. Those are the two top choices for Leo.

He also has an Apple TV and wants to know if he'll have to upgrade his Apple TV to get Amazon Prime. Leo says no, it's just an app and it will appear in a firmware update or he can download it.

What All-in-One Printer should I buy?

Episode 1387

Benny from Pasadena, CA
Epson WorkForce 3620

Benny is looking for a wireless all-in-one printer with fax. Leo says that the fax wouldn't be wireless, obviously. Leo recommends the Epson Workforce Pro. Canon also makes good All-in-One. He can actually get an all-in-one for under $100, the Epson Workforce 3620 is around $120 quite often. But he should remember that the ink is going to cost him.

What printer should I buy?

Episode 1363

Taj from Oregon
Epson EcoTank

Taj likes the idea of the new Epson EcoTank Printer. Is it worth the money, though? Leo says it absolutely is. It costs more up front, but he'll get 2 years of ink with it.

Do all Epson printers have that feature? Leo says no. Taj will have to look at what features each printer has. Not all are wireless or come with 2 years of ink. The wireless feature is great because he could scan to the cloud. The Epson EcoTank printer, while admittedly an advertiser, has some really great features.

What large format printer do I need for large prints?

Episode 1339

Billy from Marina del Rey, CA
Epson SureColor F6200 Printer

Billy wants a really huge printer to make a 50" print. Would a plotter do? Leo says no. Those are for architectural drawings. Billy will want a large format printer and those are very expensive. It would be better to go to a service to have this done. If he wants to buy one, Epson is the place to go. Leo suggests the Epson Sure Color F6200, and it costs $6500.
