I, too have an Epson Workforce. I believe it's in the 3600 series...I'm not
home to check. I paid $149 a few years ago. Love it!
2 sided printing and copying, document feeder, rear feed for one-off
paper sizes, 2 drawers for different papers. Flatbed and document feeder
scanning/copying. Separate ink cartridges for each color, high capacity
cartridges available. It warns you when a color is getting low and gives
you the option to print anyway, adjusting the colors slightly instead of
refusing to print.
It's wireless so we can print from our PC, iPads or Android phones.
I use an free app called NAPS2 (Not Another PDF Scanner 2) for scanning
docs to PDF. My two daughters list my house as their home address while
they are away at school, so I often have to "forward" mail to them. Scan,
save, email, done.
After a lot of looking and comparing, I finally settled on this one:
Epson WorkForce WF-3620 WiFi Direct All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer,
Copier, Scanner. It was on sale at Office Depot for $89 (normally
$160). I got it set up this afternoon, and it's not too big, and not
too small. I've printed on it and scanned to pc already. Haven't
hooked up the fax yet, but need to figure out where I have a phone
connection so I can do that. Oh, and I have it set up wired, now, but I
have the option to also set up wifi printing, too, if I need that.
Right now I don't really need wifi printing.
and scanner recently started giving me fits so I still use old fax
machine and scanner. There is a paucity of instructions coming with new
machines of all type (not just printers).
Over the years, HP's have evolved from accepting cartridges that you
could re-ink yourself, to others re-inked cartridges that cost much less
to only accepting cartridges of their own manufacture. They learned
what old folks working at Eastman Kodak told me when they said they made
no profit of their cameras but made a bundle on their film.
Don't know about other brands but while HP makes good printers, ink cost
may be far less with others.
yeah Ink is really ridiculously expensive. This printer I just bought,
the Epson 3620, came with full cartridges, so it'll print out at least
300 pages. I can buy the XL cartridges that print 1100 pages, but for
now I'm good with the ink that came with it.
The cost of putting extra ink in the cartridges is insignificant. I
once saw an ink recipe and there was nothing expensive in it.
People do not like buying expensive cartridges so the suppliers sell
them with one third the ink at half price. It's a real rip off.
They took a loss when they sold you the printer itself. They have
more in the printer than what you're paying for it. To makeup for the
loss, the pricing for the ink is higher. Busineses don't stay in
business long if they lose money on both ends of the deal.
People you encounter every day are fighting battles you know nothing
about. Be kind.
alongside the "normal" retail cartridge and they generally do NOT
weigh the same. - and the XL cartridge is generally (at least in the
models I'm familiar with) EXACTLY the same as the standard but heavier
(more ink) so your statement they are "full" really doesn'y mean
anything. In my experience many "starters" are 259-300 page, regulars
are 500-600 and XLs are 1200 pages. When I refill my 940 HPs they are
closer to 2000 pages, so even the XL is not "full"

(It's dead on across its entire range.)
Weighing ingredients is more accurate than measuring. It would make no
sense for me to use a scale that I didn't know was accurate to weigh
Unless you are a Prime member the Amazon one will cost you at least
as much if not more than the "dubious quality" one, depending on shipping
and tax. For me, it would be more even if I paid full price at HF, which
I rarely do. (Yes, I added tax to the HF purchase). If I waited for a sale
or used a 20% coupon, it would be cheaper still.
Tell me why the Ozeri is a "better choice"?
I have bought many things from Harbor Freight. Most are junk and do not
last long. You must have been lucky.
The Ozeri is also accurate. My 50g, 100g and 500g test weights are all dead
on. It measures to 1/100's of an ounce.
I am not a prime member, and I have never paid shipping. I simply wait
until I have $49 worth of things to buy from Amazon. It doesn't take very

hehe. That's what I do with Amazon. But I placed an order on August
26th and one item is still not here. Expected delivery October 12th.
Oh, that's fast shipping, isn't it? Hardly. hehe.
Might as well live in Timbukto with that kind of service.
