    I used to have a Brother brand printer that sucked. It used ink testing itself when I was away and it wouldnt let you print if one color was empty. I want a replacement printer. Any suggestions for a printer that won't do those thing?

    Basically any Laser printer.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Yep, the liquid in the ink will evaporate. Toner doesn't.

    Also any regular printer that does not self maintenance will clog up the print heads or so its been my experience.

    So, something like this - Amazon.com: HP LaserJet Pro P1102w Printer (CE657A#BGJ): Electronics - should make me happy?

    Any laser printer should work fine for you...Brother, HP, Epson, etc.
    Macs? Oh yes, several.
