I am driving myself nuts trying to decide between two printers. The HP office deskjet pro 6968 or the 8710. The 8710 is larger. I see a slight difference in speed and color print quality. ( The hubby won’t settle for anything but HP.)
I’ve got HSNKash that would bring the 8710 price down to the same price as the 6968. But the 8710 the is about 25lbs. We live in a small 1 br apt. However, there is the old “Go big or go home.”
Ugh … Lol
Look into the cost of the cartridge refills as part of your equation. Sometimes the printers are reasonable but the replacement cartridges is where they are making money. We used to be able to get an approximate number of copies per cartridge but I don’t know if they still do that with the ones that print photos. Also, do you just use standard paper or need specialty paper for craft printing? I have the small HP scanner/printer/copier and it handles all my business and personal needs, but I’m looking for one that will handle printable fabric, heavier paper, and photo transfers, so now I’m looking at ink jet versus laser. I don’t print photos, either. It will drive you crazy.
What are you primarily gonna use it for? If printing photos, buy the larger one for the quality. However, if primarily using it for docs, buy the smaller one. Larger isn’t always better and, living in a one-bedroom apartment, space is a real consideration. I live in a 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom house and have an even smaller Brother All-In-One! I don’t print photos, only docs.
