It's up to you or anyone else reading this whether it would be worth
it. You can shell out $165.00 to make sure your printer works for 5
years, take the risk that your printer will last that long and if not
buy one on the surplus circuit, or buy another printer as a spair for
less money than the extended warranty.
1. $165 $33/year for 5 years will give you the exact same printer you
have but risk some downtime up to a month if i'm reading your info
2. Take the risk... and if the printer fails hit www.pricewatch.com or
www.froogle.com and find a dealer with the exact same model.
3. Don't risk it and just buy another printer.. a spare in case the
primary one fails.
Given the fact that the ink costs $136 for the printer, a good deal
considering the yield... and you can get a replacement printer for
between $130 and $165... I still have to wonder of $33/year is worth
it. I'd consider given the price stocking up on spair HP business jet
1100s. I'm assuming the ink with this printer is as full as the
replacement ink, an assumption I might not be correct on.
I'm empathic to anyone who wants to keep a singular printer in service
for as long as possible for whatever reason. Learning all the
particulars to a new printer takes time and ink which costs a pretty
penny. Under these condtions I see the above three choices as being
legit options. Whatever your choice more power too you.
I also agree with you on the issue of seperate tanks, which is the
reason I picked a canon this time around. They are totally seperate.
As with Epson... unless in both cases you go with some of their sub
$100 printers. Can't speak for brother though. But the HP is
definatly more of a workhorse than any of those printers. I would
have considered one had it not been for CD printing on the Canons.
