Hi,

I need to buy a home colour printer, scanner is important but it is basically a home printer. I am looking for a relatively cheap maintenance and low cost printing.

My HP 6830 is broken and ink cartridges were annoying as the printer refused to work with no-brand cartridges (I tried 6 different alternatives and only original HP)...

So basically, colour + scanner + lowcost cartridges or laser, branded or not.

Any suggestion.

Thanks a million.

Get a laser printer : will alleviate a lot of issues and you get way better millage with toners than rip-off ink cartridge.

If you still want to stick to ink, I recommended brother printers. Cheap yet efficient. Won't waste as much inks as other brand when cleaning. Usually easy to get cheaper non branded ink.
 
I had an epson for years. They seemed to work with generic ink cartridges much better than HP. Although I replaced it with a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus a few years ago, and have been using generic cartridges purchased from Ebay without any issue.
