Wisely decided, I guess, to invest instead on some good speakers (just a little over P2k), instead of a good printer for the home PC. The solution for the good printer fix would be to swear off insanely expensive original ink, and settle for the cheap compatible stuff. The test print came out fair enough.
I’ve been so dependent on online reviews when purchasing hardware, I’ve decided to just rely on my own judgment this time. Cannot definitely consider myself of the audiophile sort, but the rare reviews I’ve found afterward are pretty much the same sentiments I have of my latest acquisition.
Got to find a suitable place for the sub-woofer though; it definitely shouldn’t be sitting atop the CPU tower.
