Epson Eco Tank 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.

What printer and cell phone should I get?

Dennis from Marina Del Rey

Episode 1323

Dennis needs to buy a printer and a cell phone. He had an Epson Artisan, but it's broken. He really doesn't have to print more than 50 pages a year. Leo likes the new Epson EcoTank printer because they have a tank of ink that'll last years and for light duty printing they're ideal because they don't clog over time. If he runs out of colors, it'll still print in black and white. Another option is a laser printer. He can get one for under $100 and it doesn't matter how long he goes in between print jobs.
