Hi All

As you all have always helped me in gaming related topics, i expect this time also you guys would help me in setting up my business.

I am soon to start my business and want to buy a low-budget printer.

After analysis, i've found two printers

I want cheapest ink cost, speed comparison and color comparison.

Printers are:-

1)CANON IP 1980 INKJET
2)HP 1000 INKJET

Which is better and why??

AMD ATHLON-2 X4 635 2.9GHZ/2GB DDR-2 800MHZ RAM
SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON 5770/XP SP3 & WINDOWS 7
M683-S2P/Still AMD is a king....

These are such cheap printers does it really matter which ones you buy? I can't find much info on that Canon model but the HP1000 will print about 480 pages of black and 330 of color. The black ink for the HP1000 will cost about $16. I think the canons black ink might cost about $20. If you need to do alot of color printing then the Canon might be the better option if you want quality, but the HP will have better software and drivers for using or sharing the printer. I've had some cheap HP printers in my days and I've killed them all in less than a year. My Canon printers seem to last a little longer, but the cost of ink seems to go sky high each year, but high costs for printer ink are across the board. I bought a Canon MP240 Pixma InkJet Printer from Best buy 2 years ago and it comes with a scanner.

Most buisnesses buy those Mono Laser printers, although they cost $70 for the Cartridges they print 1600 solid pages and no worry about color ink.

HP LaserJet Pro P1102w Printer (wireless)
