I'd recommend an epson home expression as ink is cheap and has a good app for air printing/android. Argos also do the replacement warranty for just over £10 and you can take back as much as you like as long as you claim it's not working properly and you can get free inks everytime lol

I agree with greg_james, buy an Epson and get cheap ink from Ebay.

depends how much printing you do - but i like the idea of returning the printer each time it runs out of ink - how many different argos's have you had to visit with that little scheme

£34 Asda Direct...

Cold have a look at canon's deals you can get a printer from them at £10 - £20 with ink

People like you annoy me. You are the reason why insurance premiums keep increasing. & you are the reason why landfill sites are full of perfectly usable products.
Here's a thought. If a product works, keep using it. If it runs out of ink, spend a few quid on some new cartridges. Stop being wasteful - and stop being a burden on businesses that have sold you a perfectly good item.

* Here's an even better thought. Buy a laser printer --- even you may consider the printing costs to be cheap enough to warrant keeping the printer beyond its first print run!

John Lewis £39, worth the extra £4 for a two year guarantee.

Get the app PrinterShare, it's brilliant. I can print from my tablets or phone wirelessly now. Thing is with HP printers (well the one I have) it eats ink; it's cost me a fortune & I bought it as I thought my Epson had expensive ink!

Which Epson expression?

I never understand why people insist on drawing comparisons between inkjet and laser, the fact is both machines exist because they have distinctly different markets in terms of the applications they are best suited/intended for. If your print jobs are mostly text with occasional graphics laser is probably the sensible way to go, conversely though where colour printing is concerned then inkjet is far more versatile, colour image heavy documents and in photo printing terms inkjet is a winner by a country mile. This machine is ideal in the home office for the low volume user as a general jack of all but master of none machine, providing the ability to scan, copy and print for relatively little money.

Because if I want to print high quality photos then I go to a shop (although to be honest my Laser prints photos perfectly fine for my needs) and also because every inkjet I have ever owned has always suffered from clogged print heads, dried up ink or paper jam after paper jam.

Each to their own, but I know that I will never return to an inkjet.

And rightly so that is your personal choice based on your own personal requirements, but there's no escaping the fact that both markets exist because of their individual strengths and weaknesses.

Wentto is spot on. The likes of greg_james and their fraudulent methods are a disgrace.

The thing is, some people are stuck in the 90s and think that as a home user the default option is still an inkjet not a laser. For most home use e.g. printing out school and university work, letters, e-tickets, etc., a black and white printer is all that's required. Laser printers cost next to nothing to buy and refill nowadays, give nicer text than inkjets and are much more reliable.

Bought this the other day after my Epson printer broke after 14 months. This was the second Epson printer to break just outside the warranty. When I googled the problem it stated it was a common problem with Epson printers and using non genuine ink where the print heads clog. Not much use buying cheap ink if its going to wreck the printer over time. Would never buy another Epson ever again.
Heat op. There is an android app that means I can print from my tablet and smart phones.

£34.99 at Currys and Amazon plus compatible cartridges seem to be around £26 a set, which is an old marketing trick i.e. sell the printer at a loss to hook the consumer then flog them ink at premium prices.

For THIS PRINTER. how much does it cost to replace the ink

Thanks

so which is the best value laser printer? and how much is the replacement ink (toner?)? i take it lasers cant print in colour? tired of buying hp 350 at £10+ a pop, like somebody mentioned, seem to finish really quickly. only ever owned hp printers BTW.

The Dell C1660w laser printer is fantastic. We use it to print newsletter runs for my mum's charity. The quality is amazing (the sharpness and depth of colour compared to our old laser jet is night and day!).
I think we got ours for around £60. Compatible cartridges have dropped to about £35 for a full set on Ebay. It prints vastly more than our old printer, never clogs, never skips a beat. Just a great bit of kit.

What did I say that caused you such offence? I feel like what I said was absolutely fair, reasoned and reasonable. If you really value greed over doing the right thing, then so be it.
