I've been looking at updating my ageing HP 7500 EP910 ( print issues and feed issues occurring frequently lately) and am interested in the newer Brother Tank printers, their INKvestment series. the one I'm looking at is the MFC J6545DW.
It handles up to 11"x17" paper like my HP, plus the ink tanks sate up to 1500 pagers per cyan/magenta/yellow inks, and 3000 or 6000 pages for black.
The inks are compatible in price with the 920XL cartridges for my HP, with up to 5 times the prints.
Well, I did a head cleaning on my Epson, and still have some budget ink cartridges, so I'll be using it for the time being, but I am putting money on the side for the Brother MFC-J6545.
I looked into the Epson ink tank styles, but their ink prices aren't any less expensive going that route than using their cartridges. I actually read one review/cost comparison that showed using a comparable cartridge style Epson to a ink tank one with similar capabilities going the traditional route cost around $600 less because Epson pushed the process of the ink tank printers so high, and the ink costs are almost the same.
At least Brother has priced their INKvestment line of printers to a similar price point as their regular printers.
Cardstock Dane: ForestB, Tell me about it! I had big problems last year, loads of under extrusion, which I couldn't understand - until I realized, that the new filament I had bought needed a lower nozzle temp.

ForestB: Cardstock Dane, don't mention those evil devices! Spent two 'fun' hours last night unclogging a heat break tube (the nozzle was a lost cause and replaced). Stupid bowden tube slipped and molten plastic spilled up into the heat break tube and congealed.

ForestB: Hello there, creyates! Doing okayish, still creating though about to shift back into full builder mode to prep for a campaign.

Cardstock Dane: Good to see that this place is still going strong! I don't drop by as often after I got a 3D printer, but 3D or not, this place is still an important resource for my campaigns.

Punkrabbitt: Thank you, Mr. Vermin (or is that Mr. King?) I have my workaround now

Vermin King: When did they make DropBox so un-managable?

Vermin King: I thought the security certificate was fixed already. I got the same error today. Clicked on Advanced, then Accept the Risk, and it opened

okumarts: I took a year 'off' of some sites and social media but also focused on other things. It really didn't seem to make a difference so my new years resolution is to re-engage and enjoy it more.

Vermin King: There evidently was a feasibility study about a decade ago about a water pipeline from the Great Lakes to the Southwest states. I believe that water would have been even more expensive than bottled water
