@ricklinux said in Which All-in-One Printer Should I Buy? Can be Color Laser or Inkjet.:
@lhb1142 Glad to hear it worked out for you. It also has 3 different size cartridges for it in black and color. I think the ones that come with it are 4 oz so they are small. But you can get the larger ones. I think it has them listed on the box so you can peel the end flap off and or write them down.
The ink cartridges are indeed listed on the box. There are three sizes each of B&W and color: (the equivalent of) small, medium, and large.
We’ll have to see how long the supplied cartridges last. We do not print a great deal and I know that ink dries up if it’s not used. So we’ll have to see.
Looking at various printers, I really would have liked a color laser printer which could do duplex printing (as well as copying). Scanning and fax are not necessary (though scanning would be a “plus”).
But I do not know if any of the ones I have seen on Amazon are Linux-compatible. When you go to the Linux printer site, the ones they list are old and often discontinued models. They don’t seem to keep up with the latest printers (understandable, of course).
But this Canon Pixma MG2525 will do for us, at least for the time being.
(Do you know of particular brands which offer good Linux compatibility? I know that H-P printers are supposed to be compatible but I have read [and experienced with a friend’s computer running Antergos] that they aren’t always so.)
It’s a pity that printers are the one area in which Windows (and Mac) are superior to Linux.
I do thank you again for helping us.
