Doctor Mom from New York, NY
Epson WorkForce 7620

Doctor Mom says her husband is a stamp collector and he has to put up pictures of his stamps. His old laser printer is dying and she needs a new one that can run heavy card stock at 11x14. Leo says an inkjet printer is a better option with photo paper. Leo says that Epson makes a good printer that can handle card stock. The WorkForce 7620 printers can handle 11x17 as well.

What's a good, yet small all-in-one printer?

Christine from Albany, CA
Epson WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank

Christine needs a small all-in-one printer for her tiny house. Leo says that the Epson WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank isn't too big and has the benefit of coming with 2 years of ink. That's great for regular use. They do stick out over the edge just a little bit. Worth taking a look at. Any all-in-one which does scanning and printing will be a bit larger than a standard printer. Another option is the Epson Artisan. Canon makes a very good printer as well, with the Pixma line.

What's the best printer for every day use?

Episode 1072

Oromay from California
Epson Expression 310

Oromay bought a Lenovo laptop and is having trouble connecting it to her Dell printer, and Dell says it's too old to support the Lenovo. So she's thinking of getting an HP printer. Why HP? Because she saw it on sale in the paper. Leo says that Laser printers would give her a lower cost per page, even though they're a bit more expensive up front. They don't do photos very well, though. Deskjets are better for photography and home use because the use isn't as intense as in the office. So Leo advises a wireless networking inkjet that prints photos.
