RE: Printer (to print FS9 related stuff)
I've never had a problem with my HP Deskjet 672 since I bought it four years ago. Prints as good today as it did the first day.
By the way, it's compact profile was a deciding factor back then, as available space in my computer cabinet was a concern.
Also keep in mind that you can save money on ink by purchasing store brand cartridges made especially for your model printer. I know this is the case at Staples but I'm sure you'll find them at other such office supply stores.
