and who the hell cares for this price?

It's cheap BUT the ink will cost you a fortune in the long term.
Buy a Canon that takes 5 inks. A COMPLETE set of compatible 5 inks can be had for less than a fiver (think I got 3 sets for £10) and the cost per page is then minimal. You will pay around £30-40 for the 2 ink sets in this (compatibles) so it's not such a bargain!
The 5 ink ones are a bit more expensive but can normally be picked up around £40-60ish refurb from Canon on ebay OR when they bring out a new one on Amazon. One set of inks used and you're quids better off.
I made the mistake of buying a cheap 2 Canon cartridge machine once - never again!
Have always used Canon as other makes just don't compare, (tried Lexmark, Epson & HP briefly, very briefly) mine for the last 20yrs have been workhorses.

I agree with the comment above. I bought a Canon MG5550 from Argos in December for £45 and it has the 5 ink system. Compared to my old 2 ink canon system this new printer is much cheaper to use and has all the features you can think of.

I paid around £10 for 2 complete sets of compatible inks off ebay and you can get even cheaper (although I would recommend against some of the cheapest as they could ruin your printer).

Anyway all in all I would definitely go with a 5 ink system if you are printing a lot and my personal recommendation would be any of the Canon MG range from the 5000 series and above (I've used Dell, Epson etc in the past and this is way better than all....and much cheaper to run).

By the way I've not voted either way as I believe for a bit more money you can get a much better printer, however this is a good price for the above printer.

If you're in the market for a printer, look at this for a fiver more. Epson XP 412. No fax features, but it's wireless, reads SD cards and it's ~ £70 on Amazon and Argos. Back in stock at Tesco Direct currently, but not for long.

Be aware this printer is not WiFi.....

Iz it not !??

i have the lower model ( its just fine )

And i use printershare from android , and it prints striaght off from windows machines as long as on same network

Hes right !

if you want just printer , i can recommend their mg range , i had the mg3100 off here while back

22.50 delivered , with ink

Could anyone recommend good value for money printer - basically for kids to print school stuff ? The last one I had was Epson DX (something)- used too many ink cartridges and mostly went dry Thanks

Hello, thanks for the comments and upvotes. If your just like me, you need to print a few things off here and there, scan a few things, or you've finished studying, this is a great printer. I agree with most comments that a better printer will get you cheaper ink, but i would still say its relatively cheap ink, especially if you are only planning on printing 1-2 pages a week. The amount more you'd spend on the printer might not make up for the ink savings.

That was at 6:30am. You snooze, you lose! Check checking though as they keep coming back in stock.

Bought one. Basic all-in-one printer: no card reader, WiFi, Ethernet or PictBridge. No USB cable supplied. Easy to setup on Windows 8.1. Good print quality and speed. Document feeder a bonus. Fine home office and small business use or just as an extra cheap printer. A bargain really.

£26.10 I got one

Does it print to cd/dvd's ?

Yeah make sure you put at least 12 cds in the paper tray though or it won't work.

Went down to my local staple store ( Old kent rd ) and actually bort the same make and model of printer about 1 month ago, I asked the assistant how long it would be selling at this price but she did not know. She did say they had been running at this price for about a month. i asked if could run on just black ink as i only wanted to print text not images but she did not know. Whebn i tried to run it without colour it would not work. This is an added expense for me as i dont need colour, i have found out the hard way. I also need to get a usb printer cable which i am not happy about.

You may be right with regard to cartridge ink, i do know that for toner cartridge HP laserjets are fantastic, the HP series 2 i had for 10yr and the only reason i stopped using it was that the corona wire was broken, had a series 3 for five year and the HP Office printer (4050 tn) is five years old second hand (as are the previous HPs) and is used everyday for letters, pdf files and manuals, it runs on toner refills for about £32 and lasts about 9-10months, that is the truth.
