If you can list Sparkomatic and Kraco without mentioning Roadmaster, well, I just can't take you seriously. beer

HP as far as printers go (and if they made a scanner at my price point--well below $100--I'm sure I'd be on their bandwagon).

I don't recall the last time I had an HP printer actually break down on me. The last 2 I've had, I've sold to help pay for the new one. My last laser went 7 years and was still working fine, so I sold it and used the money after I had to pay for shipping, to help pay for my new one. This one has lasted 4 years and is still running just fine. No drum to purchase either, so long term costs are pretty low. Maybe in 2-3 years I will sell this one, although I might just run it into the ground like I plan on doing with the cars in my sig.

Every brand must be evaluated on a per-product basis. No one gets a free pass from me.

Absolutely correct.

I've seen enough evaluations to know that all brands have their great products and all have their flops. Most have more of one or the other. But few make all perfect products.

Quality is sometimes hard to define. For example, some may measure a Toyota as high quality because of the extremely high reliability. Others may not agree that the reliability of a Toyota is the same as quality, because they are so basic in material, design and features, bordering on boring. Others may select a Mercedes as an example of high quality because their metric for quality has more to do with a refined vehicle with exceptional materials, features, and engineering. However few could argue that most Mercedes are not exactly an example of reliable cars.


In God we trust. All others bring data.
