Expensive inks, if you are going to be printing allot go for the higher models 5550, 6450, inks cheap as chips.

These are great general purpose printers (we've got an MG3150, MG4150 and had an MP499) but the inks aren't cheap and you definitely should avoid if you want quality photo prints as they just aren't up to it.

True.

I was looking at the Canon Ebay printer's and soon realised this to be the case, it's just not worth it.

No more Canon printer's for me, both developed print head problems probably because the lack of use but spares cost a fortune, more than likely the case with most printers but they're not getting my money next time. oO

The best printer I've had in the last 5 years was an Epson DX5050, inks are dirt cheap and the photo printing quality is spot on.

The conclusion I came to was to buy a printer that has available cheap compatible cartridges and if you don't use it regularly then to make sure you print a test page at regular intervals to prevent the print heads from blocking.

For this printer and some of the HP models with the print head on the cartridge I felt the cost of the cartridges was too much, also the colour cartridge combines all of the colours together so if only one runs out the cartridge has to be replaced which is very wasteful to say the least.

All gone, 155 sold..A sudden rush of bulk buyers. They knew this was an absolute bargain even though a few on here talked it down.

Bargain to buy it obviously is but not to run, you can't argue that!

I certainly would argue with that. For domestic and casual only users then printers that use cartridges with print heads is the cheapest and most hassle free solution. For people who use a printer at least once a week then a printer with print heads is by far the cheaper option but not always hassle free.

Laser would be nice but all in one colour lasers are still very expensive.
