|As most will now know I am intending to get an OS4 capable machine soon as funds are available, I was just wondering what currently available printers are supported, even if it's just a driver that supports text printing will be enough.
Currently I have a HP (SPC?) multi function printer but am at a point where I may get a new one, so better if I get one supported by Amiga OS4?

Over the years I've had a Konica-Minolta and 2 Xerox color lasers with built-in Postscript. They all worked about as well as one could expect using the Workbench Postscript driver.

The HPs tend to be Dot4 devices. rwo was working on a dot4.device (there's an early version on OS4Depot), haven't heard of any updates for a while now though.

I have an HP Photosmart 2610 all-in-one inkjet printer and I have been able to use the HP_Deskjet_1600C driver successfully (so far I have only tried to do text and b&w graphics). Also there is an HP_Photosmart driver that should also work, it is available on OS4Depot. I think I got the other one from Aminet.

I used to use a Canon i560 with TurboPrint. I recall it being recommended by someone called Mick Sutton in Total Amiga magazine ;-)
Until it started leaking ink it worked well for many years.
I now have "borrowed" an HP Photosmart C4480 which my wife bought but had never used. There is a driver good enough for most purposes on OS4 Depot.
I have to resort to my Mac Mini for scaning though, unless someone corrects me on this I do not think there is the scanner support for it in OS4.
