Something I don't think HP get credit for, so worth a mention here. Is how well the Ink preserves, eg. In the past I've had Epson & Cannon printers, and if I never used the printer for a week or so, I had to go through the whole process of doing the head cleaning stuff, wasting about half a cartridge in doing so. Since getting a HP 3210, I can leave the printer for weeks and when I come back to using the printer again, it's doing perfect prints straight away. So in this respect if your not a massive printing user HP's cost per page is far better than other makes. Also they do seem to go forever, believe it or not we still have a HP Laser III running at our work place, apart from some cleaning on the rollers it's hardly ever needed any attention, oh and we did replace a cog too.

Agreed with the above for the Photosmart C8180. We have one that hadn't been used for well over 18 months. On start-up it stated that all the cartridges were expired. They were a year out of date but it printed perfectly first time! It is a brilliant machine.
