Ok so i posted a few weeks ago asking if anyone had any ideas in regards to the best all in one printer i could buy. I am loking for a few more solutions and in addition to this some fresh ideas..
I understand that a lot of companys sell of the printers cheap but make their money on the inks.
I am ideally looking to spend around £50 however i am willing to pay a lttle more if i can find the right printer (not much more that £60 ideally but i am open to all suggestions)
The printer is mainly going to be used for photo printing as well as everyday tasks and maybe some work from home just printing text documents (alhough i can claim the ink costs back so its not much of a problem there)
The pixma mp210 was one possible solution as was the epson dx4400 (however this has gone up from £35 delivered to £50 at amazon)
Problem with the pixma MP210 is, due to the fact the main usage is photo printing the ink cartidges are all in one colour and not seperate colours which means (a) they dont hold as much (b) once one runs out then you have to replace the whole cartridge. Also with Canon printers it is recommended you use only Canon ink cartridges which are quite pricey in comparison to others.
The dx4400 has seperate ink cartridges although is noisy (which isnt a major problem) ... The ink isnt too pricey at £20 all in for official epson cartridges x 4 (magenta, cyan, yellow and black)
I would quite like an LCD screen so i can see what i am printing and also the ability to be able to print straight from my memory cards.
The Epson DX8400 seems like the sort of thing i am looking for (it looks like the DX4400 with an LCD screen bolted on) however is a little bit outside the price range at £70 approx delivered
any help, fresh ideas etc greatly appreciated
many thanks in advance
