    Do you often encounter problems with cis or ink tank printers, such ink drying, clogging, etc.

    Believe it or not, I've been using the same Canon LIDE 25 scanner (along with VueScan software) with my Mac for the past 10 years--still works like a charm!

    At home, I use the HP 3545 All-In-One printer. Very easy to connect to the home network. Recently, we subscribed to PLDT Fibr Business Line here in the office and got a Samsung M2070W Laser Printer and Scanner. A bit on the bulky side but does the job pretty well. 14054717_315217485496603_681738622_n.jpg

    For my printing needs, my HP LaserJet P1006 has served me well for maybe about 8 years now, no problems whatsoever with upgrading drivers from Windows to OSX, and it's very economical. I get my HP cartridges from Poc Bon in Nueva, Binondo where you can get office supplies at excellent prices.

    But for my scanner, I've since trashed the Canon Lide 90 because that's where it belongs. It worked for a time with Yosemite but it was a nightmare finding drivers for El Capitan until the scanner decided to die on me. I think HP models are built more sturdily and more easily upgradeable than Canon, so that's the way I'm heading for my next scanner.
