My old printer is dieing so what to get a new one

Its only for basic stuff like printing a few articles for school and projects

I think an Ink jet would do the work i really dont care about speed

Please suggest a good printer which has good performance : price ratio

My parents used a canon pixima that takes number 24 (I think) ink cartridges, and those are $10 and less, depending on where you buy them, but they stopped using that when they got a ton of free ink cartridges that work with our first printer, an HP Deskjet 660C (14 years old). My HP Deskjet 1220C that I got out of the trash (with paper and full ink cartridges) has the best print quality that I've ever seen from an inkjet printer. It also prints on up to 13x19 paper. That canon doesn't have the best print quality, but it's pretty good.

I have an HP "All-in-one printer, scanner, copier" Deskjet F2100. Its a decent ink-jet printer IMO. Been one year since I brought it and runs fine, original price was $55. But as always, it has a tiny 3ml cartridge, so unless you can get it refilled, you'll soon have to buy a new cartridge which (both monochrome and color combined price) basically costs as much as the original printer!

That's all well and good, but.....you have to be practical. All he wants to do is print some articles and school projects, so a ~$50 printer will be fine.

In one way the older printers are better. If you can get one used they don't have the anti-cartridge refill measures in place, and find a good source of black ink you can save lots of money.

Only use it as a secondary printer though for black and white draft text prints.

Then get a new modern printer for photo prints
