I've got HP and Canon, the latter is great and tiny drivers. The HP bloatware is unreal, I've not managed to find JUST the driver. Stay away from HP, I suppose.
It probably is cheaper to nip down the store and buy a new printer, the prices of ink are extortionate. I suppose that's where the Canon's fall down (with my model at least), they have 4 or 5 carts in their printers.
It'd be nice to get rid of all that calibration crap as well. Surely there's a software solution for that by now?
Ha, just checked, there is, it's £14.95
