Default Printers Question?

Would like recommendations on what would be a good text printer.
I want something that is quiet. Bought a Epson C82 and it is so noisy - it is going right back to the store. The print quality was awful for text. Have no idea on photos. I plan of getting a i950 for photos only. I got a new imac home computer and need to get a new text printer. I loved the HP 722C I had but it is almost 5 years old now and not compatible with my Imac.

Interesting. The c82 actually gets better text than just about every other printer out there. You may want to check your quality settings or you may need to do an alignment cycle which is a normal thing to do when you first buy your printer.

But if you are looking for another printer that does good text I would opt for the HP 1160, HP 2200 or a laser printer. All of them will produce text at equal or better price per page than the c82. The only disadvantage is that the price is also higher. The noise on these printers would probably be equal on the actual printing but on the sheet feed the c82 is pretty loud. [/code]
