My sister has an Epson; I had an Epson two printers ago - and its true they're good. But my Lexmark and the one before it has never left track lines - especially not on Glossy Paper - even at Quick Print. I've had the Z12 and now the X74; and none of them have left Track Lines; in fact, neither of them have broken down why connected to good old Jennifer, or Silver before her; while in my care of course. When I moved the Z12 down to my frontroom with the old Computer my sister had she managed to get a blackjack in the paper feeder and moaned for days before I managed to realise that a dry blackjack is stronger than the wheels of a printer! I had to tweezer it out - I don't like sweet; I hate them - and then it went a little haywire.

I must admit though - those Epsons are strong little Bastards. Once I needed to clean the Epson's Head; and the Heads are in the Printer so I had to get the print Cartridge Holder out of the Printer, clean it, and put it back in. I managed to do this first time with no trouble; bit of kicking and leavering here and there but it was good afterwards!

I had a Z11, an 1100, and one that I can't remember the model of but the dpi was 2400 ( bought it to upgrade from my Epson that prints at 1700dpi ). They all left track lines, the latter I took back to the store after playing with it for a day because the compared pictures to the Epson were obvious.

Amen to that... I've had one that has survived three years of my repair antics and my cyclonic excuse for a home! [[searches for wood to knock on]]

First persons, RPGs, Games like Dungeon Siege are all wonderful with the trackball - I had had about 3 months and 8 hours a day of constant practice with the thing before I could do it! But I like the size - good for big hands and the like; uses all the hand and not just two fingers and half the palm!

Who else hates Laptop Pads! I just hate them!

I like the Trackpoint on the IBM laptops. Those things are the trick! The little stick sits in the center of the keboard, and is quite the handy little bugger.

Hmm, I have not seen the Trackpoint things - but I imagine they're a little silly! Although; I can see the advantage of them.
