I purchased a new Gateway computer 4 or 5 years ago, with it came an Epson C82 printer. The printer did a fair job. Recently I had to replace the red, blue and yellow cartridges. The ink jets were clogged and would not clear per the instructions. I was going to take the printer apart and manually clean the jets. I found an online site re. printers, overall Epson did not rate very high and two guys had the same problem as I had. They took theirs apart and were sorry they did, nothing but trouble. Radio Shack happened to have a sale on a HP Deskjet 5900 printer and a HP Digital 5.2 Megapixel Camera for $199. That was deal that was too good to pass up. The HP printer is a lot quieter and has better quality job of printing. The camera is fantastic, I'm very satisfied with both printer and camera.
