Great printer for the price as it was £69.99!

On the website it does say £39.99 but use printer10 to get £4 discount.

I have one of these at work quite good but hungry on the ink

it will cost you more than £35.99 to replace the ink cartridges ... Canon running costs are VERY expensive !
#3
geezerBJ you are talking rubbish.

This particular Canon might have high running costs, because thats the business model of this type. Canon, epson, hp all make low end high spec printers which only allow small capacity cartridges. But, they also make slighty more expensive printers with similar specs but much higher capacity printers, indeed Canon are one of the best for this.

Lexmark however, are universally poor when it comes to their range of inkjet printers.

gazter, hope you don't mind, but you seem to be a man in the know, so which printers would you recommend with low running costs for home use - I don't print that much, but I want to start printing photos and wouldn't mind a built in scanner.

Cheers.

The gadget show did a top 5 all in one printer a few weeks ago - video here.

the ip4600 or ip4700 are an excellent range of cannons. The important thing about canons, is if you can get compatible cartridges they will sve you a fortune, they rarely dry up unlike epson, where even official cartridges will dry up if not used for a few weeks.

Took an old canon out of the attic a few months ago, it had been there six months, turned it on and a print test was perfect. Doing the same with an epson would result in a trip to landfill as all the pipes would be clogged.

Hi:)

I would also support Cannon, I have the ip4500 and it is great for home use - I buy compatible cartridges off of eBay and they cost me £10 for two complete, chipped sets which last me a good while.

I have used HP and Epson printers in the past but will be sticking with Cannon now.

The new cannons are more expensive I believe in terms of ink costs but you can still pick up the ip4500 for £70, less on eBay

I had a look at the reviews on Amazon for the ip4600 and there were lost of negative reviews which have put me off - the ip4700 seems to do better. But I really want one with a built in scanner

I agree. Pixmania makes the blood run cold.
Buy from them, and you're stung with expensive delivery and european plugs.
Crap company, anything that reminds me of them would turn me against them !

I run a kodak esp3. They predecessor of the Kodak that won the gadget show print off. It is the cheapest colour printer that I have ever run by a long way and the print quality is very acceptable. The official kodak carts are about very reasonable at £12 the colour, £9 the black.

Generally the cheaper the printer, the more expensive it is to run and the more expensive the carts are. I think this is a true statement in this cannons case.

Hot from me.

I think it's worth pointing out that (I think) these also come with a card reader and a (small) colour screen for picture previews.

They're pretty good printers are pretty good and do surprising good prints - I've got the previous model (forgets exact code), which is pretty much identical.

I'd think I'd only recommend them if you don't make lots of print outs though (which I don't), as as others have pointed out, the replacement inks are a bit of rip-off. They're good for people who just want to do the occasional print out and don't want to fork out nearly 100 notes for a printer.

I've had really bad experiences with my Epson SX515W with nozzles blocking up. It genuine Epson Black cartridge refused to print anything but a few speckles despite head cleaning many times. I got it replaced but after transferring the inks to the refurbished replacement it would not recognize my Black Cartridge at all and the colour ink levels went down from 95% to 30%. I put a compatible black cartridge in which it did recognise however I still could not print black and head cleaning just made it worse. I'm waiting for another replacement now. I was a fan of Epson but it seems the modern printers are extemely prone to problems with ink blockages especially with compatible inks.

Dont even bother with inkjet,laserjet makes sense very fast and cheap copying.

Hi, so if I need to print off vouchers or receipts once a month, should I splash out on a fast laserjet?
