Canon SELPHY CP1200 Printer Review

Canon SELPHY CP1200 Printer Review

Canon's Selphy Printer is a strange proposition, to be sure. Bringing relatively decent-quality printing on a small scale to a printer that's semi-mobile. Printing tiny images on pocketable photo-paper sheets, making the entire process as simple as tapping the print button on your smartphone. But is it worth the hassle? Does having a printer this size allow you to become a mobile printing hero for your family and friends, or does it amount to a bit of unnecessary bulk (assuming you've already got a bigger printer at home)?

Trinus 3D printer is a robust all-metal design

It's not uncommon for a cheap 3D printer to be made with cheap parts. Lots of plastic and assembly required are good ways to keep costs down for the manufacturer, but cheap parts mean a printer that it won't last as long for the end user. A 3D printer called the Trinus has turned up on Kickstarter and this 3D printer is affordable, but made using all-metal parts and higher quality constructing than you might expect.

Slash 3D LCD-SLA 3D printer uses resin to make stuff

If you need or want a high-resolution 3D printer that can sit on your desktop, you better have some deep pockets because those printers often go for thousands of dollars.

A new high-resolution 3D printer has turned up on Kickstarter called the Uniz Slash and it has better resolution at half the cost of that MakerBot and as much as a fifth of the cost of some others on the market.

AxiDraw personal writing and drawing machine writes for you

I can remember back when graduating high school my mom insisted that I handwrite and sign thank you notes to everyone who sent gifts. I can understand now why she did that, but at the time I thought it was some sort of punishment. I'm not a big fan of writing out anything and most folks likely use digital means to type out all their notes and messages these days.

Epson 9900 printer discovered to waste nearly 20% of ink cartridges

Epson 9900 printer discovered to waste nearly 20% of ink cartridges

We've long known that the pricing and value of printer ink cartridges are a scam, but one Seattle print shop has revealed just how bad the situation is, and how evil printer companies can be. One would think that will how expensive cartridges can be, they'd at least get close to being empty before needing replacement. It seems that's not the tactic Epson employs with its professional-grade 9900 printer. Bellevue Fine Art has made a video that show just how much ink is left in a cartridge when it's determined to be empty.

Epson EcoTank printer changes everything, ditches ink cartridges

Epson EcoTank printer changes everything, ditches ink cartridges

Whether you buy an expensive printer or a cheap printer, those ink cartridges are going to run out sooner than you'd like and replacing them will -- in some cases -- cost as much as the printer itself. Though we haven't be able to completely do away with printers yet, the need for them has decreased greatly enough that many people, faced with the high cost of ink, elect to run to the nearest library when they do need to print something. Only a shift in how printers work could potentially change this, and it looks like Epson is the one to bring about that change.
