My local print cartridge recycler mentioned to me this past weekend that they advise not upgrading firmware on newer HP printers because it renders the recycled cartridges useless.
When you see the cost of genuine HP cartridges compared to the recycled ones, which I have had no problem with on an older HP printer, you have to wonder.
Brother and Canon were among the recommended brands for recycle-friendly and overall good reviews.

It's amazing how much has changed in 10 years.
I bought my last HP product in 2001. It is an HP #N5213 Laptop. I still use it
because it has serial comm port which is handy for pre-USB equipment.
Once I got rid of Windows Me and loaded up with XP, all my troubles, crashes
and blue screens went away.

Too bad, they made good stuff, but I guess those days are gone.
Maybe we can take shots at Microsoft next..
Windows 95 (9 to 5)
Windows NT (Nice Try)
Windows ME (Most Excruciating)
Windows XP (X-tra Problems)
Windows VISTA (Very impossible software to apply-- it's so bad, that XP is the upgrade.)

Actually, I stopped buying HP printers and HP computers because they are not reliable. It took me 4 months to get a CPU fan for my HP tower, and then it wasn't the right one, the heat sink was the wrong size so I used the old HS with the new fan. The HP is just over a year old. Meanwhile, my Vaio has lasted 10 years and just recently I replaced the C drive and CD drive that just wore out. So when I bought my new computer, I passed over HP, Dell, and a few others and got another Vaio. It works very nicely. As for printers, I changed to an Epson Workforce 840. Its the fastest color printer, ink is cheaper than the IBM, HP and Dell printers we have, and its wiireless, so I hit print form the laptop and bingo it prints, no wires, and from the old HP, its a cable and networked to the otther computers in the house. As for MBA's, I stopped at a BS in biz mgt. Didn't change my salary any, just a 20k student load to pay off.
