I used it a few days ago to print out the roster of the volunteer shop that I work in.
I use it regularly for some reason - I print things out that I get online bills for and seem to do a lot of printing still.
We seem to use it fairly regularly. I made some Christmas invitations for a couple of Christmas parties we are having in December. I printed off all the family Christmas party invitations and posted them. With the other Christmas party invites, there are always some older members in the groups we belong to, so those invites need to be printed off and sent by snail mail, because they don't have computers or email addresses. I am the Secretary of a group who fundraise for the local nursing home, and I have to send minutes by snail mail to those without email. My husband uses the printer a lot when he does all our bills. Our daughter uses it a fair bit as well, mainly to print off her resume when applying for jobs.
Don't mention the war!
I have been trying to get my printer to print something for over a week. I have wasted a dozen or more pages on poorly printed images that are a total waste. My husband recently replaced our dinosaur computer with one from his work, but it doesn't talk to my printer yet. He spent a long time on the weekend trying to sort it , but by the time it did downloads with our super slow speeds we ran out of day.
When it's working I use the printer for my art. I print my photos for reference or sometimes for printing onto my work or occasionally as collage element. I use it a few times a month.
A few weeks ago as I had to change ink cartridges. I agree with others that the cost of buying ink cartridges is way out of hand but it does pay to buy the heavy duty replacements for longer print life.
About half an hour ago to print out a recipe. I agree with what everyone says about the cost of ink. I try not to print unnecessarily because of the impact on the environment but I could cut down more I'm sure.
I love all your tales of woe above! Have a very old laser A3/A4 printer and do use it a few times a week and it behaves very well still albeit slow to print, well, I am not in a hurry. It is still useful for various things, like give a copy to a non pc person, print signs for garage sales, print forms etc. We should not fall for the cheap version of anything as we know it is not worth it all round.
