For me the annoying thing is that the HP AIO's I've has were good (G85 and a Photosmart Premium). But I wouldn't want to buy one if that stuff* is going on! Like you I got a Brother, which I'm very happy with.

Yeah...it just sort of sets my teeth on edge as it's creepy...



Is your Brother an AIO??? I've never been a fan of AIO's but, when my sister's printer died and she needed something rightthisminute, we stumbled across a cute (very small footprint) Brother AIO (MFCJ410W)--my sister had always wanted an AIO--at a local office supply place for $60! I figured if it lasted even as little as 6-8 months, it would be worth the price. It's still working well after 6-7 years.


It was that more than anything that pushed me to take a look and see what Brother had to offer in monochrome laser printers. Their 5470DW has worked out quite nicely for me...

It is an AIO, but since it is an A3 one we're not talking small footprint. Initially it was the scanner we were after, but the print quality is great as well. https://www.brother.co.uk/printers/i...rs/mfc-j5330dw

Thanks for the link...it's a nice looking printer. My sister did some photo printing using Brother's-branded photopaper and I was surprised at how well it did for not being a "photo" printer--I really was expecting the output to be crap and...it wasn't...'-}}
