I am currently set on this:


There are a couple of issues though. No Duplex. No ADF (not required). And limited support for printing from Mac and iOS. Also no display.

I don't want to get HP this time around. Epson I can think about. Probably would still go for Brother. Just looking for suggestions on models to check out before I place the order.

Do not go for Epson. I bought Epson inktank printer and it is not reliable at all. Printing is damn slow.
It broke twice, 1st time its mainboard and head went kaput and second time it failed again.

The issue with ink tank printers is the printing head.

My parents have a Canon Inktank Printer. The printing head got dried up because of low usage. Cost them 2k to get replaced from a local shop. He said if you print less than 50 pages a month, it might happen again.

Yep I print 2 pages of something every 5-7 days or so . Summer drying up is not much. In winters , you will need to print a lot more as the head jams up and throws all pale colours of everything or does not put a drop of ink on paper

So only consider it when you are going to print something regularly atleast in a interval of 1 week
When I took it to service because of jammed head , the guy was actually shocked because the printer had only done 5xx pages in 5 years
