HP Deskjet 1000 Printer - J110a

Since my old HP Deskjet 690C printer was not able to be used again, then after a long time did not have a printer and have to printing in computer rentals, so when I have enough money I bought a new printer for my printing needs and my choice fell on HP Deskjet 1000 Printer - J110a.

I've always preferred the HP brand printer products, because the printing head attached on the ink cartridges not on the ink holder such as other printer brands. So it is always a new print head every time I replace the cartridge, while the tubular ink system with separate head in the stand often occurs congestion and the cost of replacement of print head is very expensive, often exceeds the new printer price.
(Yes I know that there are some HP printer products with ink tube separate with the head).

This is the cheapest HP printer on the market in my town, why I did not choose multifunction printer? Because I believe if a printer and scanner combined in one device, so if one function is broken, the other function will be broken as well, Even if not broken, just like the scanner is still functioning, then there will be lots of big devices at my desk if I buy a new printer as a substitute for the malfunction printer of the multifunction device.
The printing result is very good, in my opinion is better than my old HP printer, the resolution is higher, and images or photos printing also look sharp and the pixels not so visible.

But because the price of ink cartridges is cheap (cheaper than my old printer cartridges), so the contents of the cartridge is little less, in my opinion the printouts output is not too much, and have to frequently replace cartridges if you have lot of printing activities.

In the information on the HP website, the ink cartridges with more content is available, but that thing is can not be found on any computer shops in my town, probably due to the expensive price.

Red Bridge RB-568 - Multi in One Memory Card Reader

This card reader can read and write nine types of memory cards, they are Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick Micro (M2), SD-Card, SDHD Card, Multimedia Card (MMC) and DV Card.
I do not use all those slots, I only use it to read SD-Card from my digital camera, Micro-SD card from my phone, and Memory Stick Duo from my brother's Playstation Portable, connected to the USB 2.0 port on my computer.
I bought it for Rp.19.900 (approximately U.S. $ 2.4), this made in china device is a reliable and strong, it never failed to read various memory cards, at a low price I have pretty much benefit.

LG Internal GH22 Super Multi DVD Rewriter 22x IDE

I bought it earlier this year to replace my CD-RW that has often not functioning properly, you might think "Come on, you just bought a DVD-RW in the year 2011?" Where nowadays is the era of Blu-Ray.
Yeah right, maybe I'm outdated, but in the past I feel don't need to have a DVD ROM or even DVD-RW, but this year due to the circumstances and because the price of this device is already very low, so I decided to buy it, especially now that the price of Blu -Ray ROM or RW is still very expensive for me.
I bought it for Rp. 195,000 or about USD $ 23. and I regret why I did not buy this earlier, because a piece of blank DVD capacity is about six time a blank CD, and the price of blank DVD and blank CD price is the same at Rp. 2,500 or about USD $ 0.3 (30 cents).
With this DVR-RW now I able to save about four of my movie collection in a single DVD, but apparently now the availability film on the Internet already in HD format which is more than 1 gigabyte each film, and sometimes it requires one blank DVD to saving one film only, times have changed indeed.
