Hi all, I'm hunting for a new multifunctional (all-in-one) for my office. I need it to be SANE compatible, and with good printer drivers, and it is not a requirement that it has support for the "copy" function, or the buttons. I'd like to avoid HP this time around, as they may not be too expensive to buy, but the consumables are prohibitively expensive in the long run (ink cartridges particularly). Searching around for what's available and information about the different parts, I've narrowed down to two main models, both from Epson, but I wanted to ask your opinions about them. Pros/cons, experiences. The models are:
- Stylus CX 5700
- Stylus CX 7700
Both are very well supported with SANE (with good overall support for the scanner), and have support by either CPUS or Gutenprint, both included in both Fedora 7 and Fedora 8, which will be my target Linux distributions. I have not yet decided on which to get, especially what can I expect in the Linux side of things, will I be able to benefit from the more robust feature set of the 7700 or will they be pretty much the same in Linux? The price difference is negligible and I could easily get either, but I'd like to get the one which will work the best with Linux, since I don't use Windows much at the office any more.
If ain't broken, don't fix it! :eek:
If can be improved, go for it! :cool:
