Inexpensive printer that scans decently
Sep 8, 2012

Well, now that school is started for the kids I can't put it off any longer. The Kodak ESP7, which was always a bother, is asking for its fourth printhead, which she obviously isn't going to get. I need a decent printer which will never be asked to print out better than school assignments BUT I would like it to be a decent scanner as well, which the Kodak was not. Watching my 15 year old print out a last minute report on my Epson was like opening my wallet and watching all the bills go flying out : )

So: good ink usage but no high print quality required, with a scanner that I could use for archiving assorted media without having to post process it to death to make it look like the original, though not for gallery use, just for decent archives. Budget for this printer is a consideration (I'm looking for my own new printer at the same time) and a lower price trumps a better scan (for now).

Mostly on OSX around here. Any sleepers in this category I should know of?

Thanks for any recommendations : )
