    Default Printer question




    Team Mom needs a new printer after pouring a Coke into hers. I have a very good non windows 7 Canon printer w/o copy and fax. I see this as an opportunity to upgrade mine to multi function and give her mine. I am looking at the Lexmark OfficeEdge Pro4000. I tried this one at Office Depot and compared it to the HP Office Pro 8600. Online i found the Lexie from $229-$269. Working with my salesman, I asked him about a trade in. He had this printer on sale at $169 and sight unseen offered $50 off with a trade. I don't think I can beat that deal unless I hear some neg feedback here. I know the old Lexies were memory hogs on the slower machines.

    Picked up the Lexmark today. MSRP was $299, marked down $100.traded in a printer for $50 and walked out for $99. Little difficult to set up the wireless network and had to get Lexmark on line to shadow my PC. It is a large bulky machine and probably too large for most small home office areas.

    sounds like you are a great negotiator.

    wife and i use cheapo brother laser printer that is networked. i also have a $99 samsung laser that is in my office for light printing. i don't open paper files anymore and keep very little paper. everything is now digitized and stored on tablet/laptop/cloud.

    Curious how many people use this cloud stuff, and how?

    I have an Amazon account and get 5 gig (I think) storage but I don't really use it. I can see it could be useful and even help for backups and such. I'm not really keen on using AMZN, not that I have anything against them, but their might be better ways. I have so many memory sticks I can't keep them straight (just bought another 16 gig this week).

    Black Friday, I found this (Lexmark above) for $137 and when I checked it was a floor model without installation disc or manual. Installed my Canon Pixma for Team Mom and also got her a wireless connection to the Lexmark. Strange how she has trouble connecting to the router at times in the middle of the house and no problem connecting through the router to the far end at the printer.
