Yes, no doubt laser toner is more resilient, as it's plastic powder fused to paper by heat.
Color print output as compared to the PRO-100 is actually quite close, surprisingly.
Red is not as rich, and blacks are not as dark, but it's a very close copy nonetheless.
Holding the two prints...
Well, around another week into ownership, and this printer is a good one.
My wife likes to crochet, and sometimes prefers printed patterns
as opposed to looking at a computer display. She printed two patterns,
and was very pleased with the quality. Gridlines were sharp,
colors were vivid, and...
See THIS THREAD for my reasons in buying this printer.
US $299 from B&H Photo/Video at time of posting this.
Federal stimulus and a boost to unemployment payments
due to coronageddon made this purchase possible,
while still banking extra monies. ;)
The following is the review I posted to the...
So, I've had this printer for a number of years.
I don't print a lot from it.
It worked perfectly for a few years, with light use, then crapped on me.
It printed DVD covers and anything else I asked of it for at least two years.
It was a workhorse, with great color output.
Whoa! @pharmacist replied to my measly thread!
While I've only replaced the carts once, I have another set filled which are not so full.
I probably overfilled in my eagernesss, leading to the drips.
I now have a used set of OEM carts, some of which show proper ink levels when full
No worries: the carts dripped a few times, then stopped completely.
Nothing further, even after shaking to encourage drips.
They went through some mild temperature changes, so I suspect
that somehow created a slight pressure change.
...and I replaced the full cart set with flushed & refilled carts.
Some drips occurred when releasing the storage clips, and I was prepared for that,
just as OEM and other carts will do.
A few more drips from some carts as opposed to others, but they're all good.
It took but a few seconds for...
Something I haven't seen as a suggestion, is a third-party software
to generate prints on disks. I've used the Acoustica CD/DVD Labeler
for several years, and it's exceptional.
I believe @stratman uses it, too.
It offers all sorts of image adjustments, circular text fields, infinite
There's probably something within the Android OS to indicate at least a print driver,
though I wouldn't know the first thing about how to get to the information.
Considering Android is a 'Nix variant, I'd suspect a Linux/Unix expert could find something.
I'd also suspect the setup to be using a...
I've only chimed in on this thread once or twice, even though I do enjoy photography.
However, an unexpected(and very unintentional) inheritance has given me the means
to acquire a camera which I had only fantasized about having, and it's an exceptional
camera indeed. It is the Canon EOS 5D Mk...
If you'll be refilling, I'd suggest having one or more sets of all 8 carts at the ready.
The whole-set changeout mentioned is a way to significantly reduce spent ink from the purge cycle
that is triggered by a change of just 1 cart.
So instead of all 8 channels being purged for a single cart...
If the printer is in a very dry environment, and such is the reason for idle time
concerns, I'd probably just remove the carts and chuck 'em into storage clips
for the duration. Likewise, removing the print head and rinsing with Windex
then water and leaving in a safe place to dry.
Seems to me...
It's a physical hard drive, as mentioned.
It crashed. Some clicking, sometimes it won't spin.
It spins now about half the times it's given power.
Windows 7 was running; it crashed during normal use.
Error one moment, bluescreen the next.
Total failure from the OS afterwards.
Switch to SSD...
I'll give you that much, to be sure,
but what about MTBF or other parameters such as percentage of physical failure rate?
Manufacturers provide MTBF, which can be useful,
but determining rates of physical failure between makes, or even within makes,
is a unicorn hunt. Name all the 'Big' makers...
Any advice to offer on similar, from a crashed HDD?
I've a Seagate 2TB drive which failed suddenly, which is why I've recently moved to SSDs.
I've been trying the Linux 'ddrescue' utility to recover, but it's been some time now,
and I'm unable to confirm if I have a persistent memory on the USB...
If I'm remembering correctly, this article had something to offer about that.
Even though the content is from 2013, it's a very informative read
about longevity and endurance of SSDs.
And because it dates from about 6 years ago, I'd expect the industry
has improved on many of the points mentioned.
I did nothing,
other than inserting and removing drives as recommended by the instructional pamphlet.
The design failed me, not the operation.
Whether I received a product failed to doom or I misused it, I'll probably never know.
