I've had enough frustration from my old HP all-in-one that I finally broke down and bought a new printer, an Epson RX595. It didn't take me long to install it--not a fraction of the time it took me to get the old HP out of my computer. But it will take awhile to figure out all the features. I can't believe you can get so many goodies with a $99 printer--well, $149 without the online rebates. I miss one feature I liked in the HP--automatic downloading of digital camera disks--even though it was beginning to get flaky on me. The scanner hasn't worked for a long time and the paper rollers were beginning to act up. I like the look of the printed pages I've done on the Epson so far and it's much faster. I'm going to have to clean up the mess I've made in my studio unpacking the printer and installing it before I try printing any photos. If it's anything like my other Epsons, I'll be a happy camper. What do people do with old printers that still sort of work?
