After wanting a new printer and doing lots of research. I have ended up going for the HP c8180.
You will need to use the HP store discount code for an extra 10% off.
The Gadget Show have a nice video section reviewhttp://fwd.five.tv/gadget-show/videos/top-5/top-5-photo-printers
Although Epson come out on top I really wanted to be able to scan negatives and slides. Turns out the model that is the closet match in the Epson range costs £257 or there abouts and does not come with a CD burner like the HP one does.
Both have 6 colour cartridges and the cost per print is not a lot in it.
Happy to answer questions.
