Help, Looking for new printer, with low running costs!

Hello, just had my epson sx600fw die on me, after purchasing 2 new sets of inks! seems like I should have spent the 70 pounds on a new printer. So I have decided to throw it out and look for a new one…

Hello, just had my epson sx600fw die on me, after purchasing 2 new sets of inks! seems like I should have spent the 70 pounds on a new printer. So I have decided to throw it out and look for a new one, basically looking for something which will just work as a general printer with cheap ink! compatible ink is fine! looking to spend around 40-50, wifi would be great but not a deal breaker! thank you.

canon outlet on ebay have great deals on refurbs...cheap to run...with a 12 month waranty. My one looked brand new...and arrived really fast

I know this blows the budget, but may be worth it in the long term.

I just bought one of these:-

http://www.ijtdirect.co.uk/?sct=dell1320cn

2 full sets of toner (rated at 2000 pages each) for & the printer for £120. Printer is ace, really quick, nice and quiet, hooks up to the network easily (wired).

For me it is perfect as I can now forget about printers for around 2 years (even with the daughter printing out her homework a couple of times a week).

Obviously it might not fit for you, but I think it worth a mention just in case...

Thanks!
I like the look of that printer evilmonkey, how much would refills cost on that? I would like a printer which I dont have to worry about clogging, or general maintenance, that definitely looks like it may fit the bill!

I didn't have a huge look around, but even if you stick with that same company they're the the same price as in the offer (£60 for 3 colours + black).

Having said that if you look online there are a number of codes for 1/3 - 1/2 off toner at that place, so hopefully even less.

Other than the price (which I actually thought wasn't too bad) there are 2 main drawbacks.

- It's a laser so pictures aren't 'photo quality'. Having said that they're still pretty good. I printed out a xmas thank you card for my 2 year old with a load of her xmas piccies on it for the relatives and they came out fine.

- It's fairly large. It's got a (approx) 50x50cm foot print, but is probably 60-70cm tall as well!

Other than that I've no complaints, it sits on a shelf silenty and every now and then my wife sends a print job to it (and thank heavens to have got rid of having to share a printer through a PC!), it all just works...

E.M.

Like Karagh I bought a canon refurbished MP600 two years ago off Canon Ebay outlet. It is used (thrashed) daily for correspondence and photo work. Lots of cheap compatible inks online. Excellent product and i think you can get a wi-fi version now.

Evimonkey's suggestion looks a good deal but resolution is not good enough for photo work for me.

Hope you get something soon!

The "Starter" toner is good for about 1000 prints which is probably about 2 or 3 times more than you get with inkjets anyway so at £50 its a bit of a bargain , but note the Toner that Argos are offering is not the right one for it (offer 2). The correct toner is this one http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?storeId=10001&catalogId=1500002201&langId=-1&searchTerms=PFA+821

My mother inlaw has had this for about 2-3 weeks now,and she told me the other day, she doesnt know what she did without it. She has gone through 2 reams of paper so far with the starter toner, and it is showing 60% remaining

Just point to note the OKI product which the Philips is branded from has a 3 year warranty, but slightly more expensive
