    I don't do a lot of printing but on occasion I need to and my biggest usage is scanning in documents to save on disc. I've been using a HP 1200 ink jet series all in one printer for about 10 years now and finally hooked it up to the Win 7 system today.
    It's no longer compatible, downloadable driver not available. *sigh*
    Guess it's time for a new printer, scanner, copier.

    If its any consolation, the prices have come down considerably over the last couple of years.

    Yeah. If you look @, you could find an office tossing them to the curb.

    I hate printers too, they always give me fits! It seems like printers are the one electronic device that never improves.

    Better Printing Quality = Yes
    Compatibility and Reliability = No

    Seems like I'm always reinstalling the damn thing!

    My current printer is a LexMark. Would you consider that an "Acme" printer?
