Ink jets need to be used on a regular basis to keep the heads from clogging. My Epson Workforce has been flawless for years. Got my son an Epson for uni but he does not print much. Well, didn't take long for the heads to get gummed up. Same with my mother's printer. Got them both a Brother B&W laser. Problem solved. ;)\n\n\nI had no problems at all with the first Brother MFC-465CN that I had, just that it died from age and use and cartridges no longer available in high capacity. The now-dead Brother MFC-J480DW has chewed through ink cartridges like a crack addict, and I was buying their high-capacity ones! It got used regularly but in just one period of not being used for about a month, in clogged up and even going through a set of brand new cartridges couldn't raise it from the dead.\n\nThis one is huge and for the speed it offers is extreme overkill, but I don't want to deal with inkjets again. Ever.
