The last thing I want is more computer kit, but that’s what I had to get when my Epson Stylus Photo RX620 Series printer went wrong the other day, and the boy in the repair shop said it would cost more than £200 to fix. It only cost £199 to buy. I did consider paying the repair cost just to avoid adding to landfill and having to spend a day buying and installing new kit, but if it had then gone wrong again in the near future I would have blown a fuse.
So I spent hours buying and setting up a new Canon printer/scanner.
It produces good quality prints, and is not too difficult to use, but it took me some time to figure out which directory it copies scans to.
The advantage of the Epson was that it could also copy 35mm slides, a feature which more recent copiers don’t seem to have. So I then had to get an Ion Slides 2PC copyer.
I haven’t tried it out yet. There’s only so much kit setting-up that one can take in a single day. I’m getting as bad a Fat Mac, who can’t even work the batteries for his camera without getting annoyed.
