latest rec. for iMac-compatible printers

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Have a late model iMac with Mountain Lion, OS 10.8.2.  Also have 3rd generation iPad and iPhone 5.

 

What would you Apple aficionados recommend for the most compatible all-around printer?  I am obviously in need a a printer replacement and am specifically looking for an all-in-one type.  Which make/model do users have the best luck with?

 

Thanks, in advance.

Hmmm...thought I'd get some responses.  Where are all of you "helpful hardware folks"?

I was struggling with the "most compatible" part. If it's USB, it's going to work, even in its most basic form. And beyond that, the model is personal preference. HP's stuff is usually terrible to work with, at least in my experience.

Probably an Epson then. Just wanted an educated opinion based on some real world experience. I appreciate your opinion; thanks.

Sorry I missed this one.

 

Recently I changed from an older Canon printer to the relatively new Canon MG6330 (the model in Japan).

 

Couldn't find it in the US... 

 

It has a touch screen and is dirt simple to set up.  Just an AC cable; never need to connect USB.  It can scan wirelessly, too.  Printing from iPhone, iPad requires no set up other than your home's wireless network.

 

Recommended it to a friend when he got his iMac system... he had never owned a computer before.  A week later, he had printed, scanned and copied globs of stuff.  It is that easy to use.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

I'm currently contemplating the (new) Canon Pixma MX922.  Although not listed on Apple's site, it is compatible with AirPrint printers and Mac software.  It's an all-in-one supposedly with ink cartridges which go a long way compared to similarly priced Epson's.

Canon makes good printers.
