Anyone here have this printer, need a new one.

I got it to replace my MP610, no probs so far and excellent quality
#3
Good price.. you need to amend your post - this is an all-in-one, not just a printer.

Doesn't appear to have wi-fi. For the same price currently you can get a decent Epson with wi-fi in Tesco, PCW, Currys. SX425W I think.

Food for thought.... Three times within the last 15 years (the last being 10 months ago), I have relented and bought an Epson due to price, but each time I took it back (or regretted it when I couldnt), and bought a Canon instead.

You get what you pay for. And with an Epson, you get flimsy build quality and the noisiest print mechanics you're ever likely to hear.

I know this is just my humble opinion though, and I'm sure there are plenty of Epson owners out there who will disagree.

I've been very happy with my Epson but it's an older model (R300). Need a new all-in-one as my scanner won't work with Win7 and dedicated scanners are a silly price now. Had a long chat with a guy who sells all these printer brands and inks. Overall advice was that Epson and Canon are the ones to look at but none of them are as well made as they were just two or three years ago. He didn't rate Canon any higher than Epson for build quality or print quality, which surprised me somewhat. They're all chasing the lowest possible price to try to lock you in to their ink.

Maybe I'll stick with what I've got for now!

Good printer and cheap compatible cartridges.
#10
What about the HP CN245B all in one for £37.95 on Amazon? How does it compare?
#11
how much is the ink?
#12
i had an expson which lasted a year and then because i thought it was at a good price, bought another epson. Big mistake this was worse!

Now im looking for a decent printer that is relatively cheap to run.

Unless you're only using it very occasionally, the cost of the printer isn't that important, the ink will overtake it easily.

Avoid HP - expensive ink and greedy software.

Almost bought an hp cd055b earlier, what would your recommend mate in terms of value for money where inks concerned

DizzyDaisy,

Apologies, I've banned you in error (slip of the fingers), hopefully the account will be reinstated shortly.

I have the wifi model and it's excellent i assume they use the same technologys print quality is amazing, great array of feature duplex printing is great, nice to have the paper hidden away in the cassette, not so sure about photos mind usally a little duller than they should be.

ink is a bit pricy too considering you need 2 types of black ink, around 40 for a fullset.

I use these for my ink but you need to keep the chips of the original cartridges to fit to these cartridges.

Or ebay sells them.

You need to check availability of compatibles for individual machines but generally Epson is well served for most types. eg my older 6 ink printer: Epson set around £75, compatibles (not as good but perfectly acceptable and reliable) £5! Check Amazon, the bay, etc but even tesco and others do compatibles at around half price. The printer manufacturers try to keep ahead of the game by changing the cartridges to lock you in but the compatibles usually follow a bit later. There are some Epson machines on good offers at the moment which don't yet have compatibles (eg SX425W, £50 in many places). I'm less familiar with Canon but similar applies. Most HP machines have disposable print heads on the cartridges and no or expensive compatibles (often refills). Personally I'd avoid Lexmark, Brother, Kodak, etc: they tend to be less well reviewed but importantly the availability of cheap inks is much lower.

Amazon also have the Canon PIXMA MP495 All-In-One Wi-Fi Colour Photo Printer, for £49, this has Wi-Fi - does this make the 495 model the better buy, or am I missing something?

Maybe I should do a new post. If this got 202 degrees plus, the Wi-fi version for under £50 seems good value for those wanting just a basic wifi printer.

After weighing up the 2, I've decided on the orig. one (without wi-fi) the MG5150, It seems a better printer all round: it has card readers and USB and also more ink cartridges, instead of a combined colour cartridge. It also has a colur LCD display. Thanks OP for this.

I was under the impression that Kodak printers have reasonable ink prices. does anyone have any experience of this? Any similarly priced printers?

Cheaper for originals but you're not going to find much in the way of compatibles I suspect.

Got this to replace my less than 2 year old Epson that just wont print Magenta. I will see if I can clean the head with cleaning fluid etc. but for now I just need something that works and for £50 I've only printed a couple of pictures out for my passport and I'm quite impressed (poss due to the 5 ink system which all have seperate cartrdges, the 4 usual ones plus a photo black one). Build quality looks ok, I really like the little LCD display (On the old epson there was no info, except via the PC). It has 2 paper cassettes 1 at the front for std. A4 and one at the rear for card or photo paper, (you can choose from the print options which to print on - also good for say headed paper). Also has built in media card readers and of course a scanner. It's also in a very stylish highly glossy black finish which adds a nice quality feel to it all. Can't go wrong in my opinion for £50. Bargain!
