color printers

Kathy Marble, Harvard, MA sez she is about to buy a color printer and asks
for advice.

See CONSUMER REPORTS magazine for Oct 1996.  Excellent analytical article
discusses merits of various technologies and rates color printers in the
following order:

1.  HP Deskjet 855Cse at about $500

2.  HP Deskjet 682C at $300, considered  by CR to be a Best Buy

3.  HP Deskjet 600C at $250

4.  Epson Stylus Color II at $230.

I have just acquired an HP Deskjet 870Cse, which apparently came out after
the CR research and ratings.  It cost about $585 (early Christmas present
from Iris-crazy wife, who expects color prints for scrap book) and while my
experience with it is limited my initial impression is that it is superb.

But anyone planning this purchase should read the whole article for pros and
cons, which include costs per page and maintenance costs.

Merry Christmas.  Off list for a week.
