After two years of Canonical printing, I switched faiths and now have a Brother.
When I bought my laptop in June 2006, it came with a free Canon PIXMA MP150 inkjet printer. It continues to work fine, but lately I’ve grown frustrated by the sheet-feeding mechanism as the final product comes out skewed.
Print job after print job, my resumes and other documents appear angled from header to footer.
I had enough, and drove to Salem today and bought a Brother MFC-465CN with the same printing, copying, and scanning features and the addition of a fax capability. The Brother has flatbed technology, not sheet-fed, so I’m assured the paper output will be aligned.
After some tinkering with settings and an online chat with a Comcast rep, the landline is now configured to ring twice for the fax to receive and five times for the Comcast Digital Voice to pick up.
I won’t use the fax often, but as I’m not tied into a work setting these days, it might come in handy.
