I am considering buying a new printer for home use, with a small amount of printing. Major manufacturers (Canon/Epson/HP/Brother) are constantly improving their systems, but I'm mainly interested in drying nozzles. Among other things, the cartridges price, original or compatible. Will anyone share the experience? Or look at a color laser, no photo quality printing?
Does anyone know a good sites/blogs with verified opinions on printers?
Thanks for answers
Peter

All inkjet printers can suffer from "drying nozzles". All such printers have a "parking/cleaning" station for the print head that is "supposed" to seal the nozzles from ambient airflow between print sessions.

For black text/line drawing doc printing, a laser printer is less trouble and can be less expensive "per click (sheet)" than using OEM ink carts. With refilling inkjet carts, paper becomes the largest expense, by far.

That said, YMMV.

All inkjet printers can suffer from dried nozzles. To avoid this you need to print a full sheet ( test sheet) at least once every week or two to keep keep nozzles clear. Find a printer that has the features you desire and then check for availability of compatible carts for better price.
