although it is true that HP costs a little more than others, the kind of
work you are telling prompts me to tell that HP will be the one good for
you. The reason is that in most printers after changing the cartridges
for 3-4 times, you need to buy the entire cartridge and cartridge holder
module(the one that moves along the page) together, like in Canon.
Why??? Because that is how it is!! This doesn't happen in HP. Well, that
is from my personal experience(my canon is still lying and I am not
using it anymore). So the total cost per number of pages output over a
period of months is reduced in case of HP. and yes undoubtedly, FC comes
with a good load of HP drivers. So I would recommend HP for you.
