OoS everywhere for me (in store that is)

I bought this printer from Tesco at basically the same price ( £39) about 2 months ago.

The last (& 1st) printer I had cost me a fortune in ink & this time I wanted to make sure I bought more sensibly. I can buy 2 ink cartridges in Asda for £8 usually or £6.90 each in Tesco if there's extra points invoved. All in all, a good deal & an exellent printer.

I read all the reviews after I bought it and alot mentioned the noisey paper feed & length of time to print. Neither point appeared troublesome with my printer.

The way I see it, if you're wanting a good quality printer for the home at an excellent price...................buy it!!!

i know some one who as this printer and it's crap, and it was a lot cheaper

ive got this too and its superb

and gte the ink from ebay where its 16 carts for about £15

I picked this up from Argos last weekend, I agree that the paper feed is a bit noisey, but so is my house so its not an issue. Brilliant Printer, I have had HP before and they were very costly when buying ink.

Until they clog up the heads, and then you throw the printer out! :-(

Been there SO many times with so many printers, of so many different makes as my printer use tends to be intermittent.

This time went for HP A(again; after a good while with Epson then Brother!) as the heads replace with the cartridges, but the ink price is SILLY; but at least it means I am more likely to have a working printer when I need one!
OK, fixed head printers are less problematic when they are used every day, but that's far from how I use a printer :-(

Laser is a better answer for higher volume use, but colour laser consumables are a fortune!

I wish there was a sensible cost answer, but printing is either dear and relatively trouble free, or cheaper and bothersome.

Really helpful comment, not.

Would you care to expand on it?

Just reserved one thanks! For info there are still 3 available in the 2 shops in Guildford. I currently own a Canon Pixma MP460 that I got from Argos when they had them at £23, but now the cartridges are both empty and it would cost me about £45 to buy both... No way. Silly times when printers become disposable really, but it doesn't make sense buying cartridges at that price.

Thanks a lot for the pointer and all the feedback, on my way to Argos now, voted hot!

out of stock for me here in derby reserve and delivery damn it.

Got one a few months ago at this price.

Its OK, produces good quality prints and the ink is cheap.

Bad points are its noisy, jams up regularly and has terrible driver software.

Put it this way, I wouldnt pay any more than £39 for it.

Would never buy another cheap Epson to save my life. Gone through a DX4450 and SX105 in the last year, my partner too. They're such a headache it's unreal. Sure, this comment doesn't help you decide to buy this model printer, but you should still know I'm still traumatized by attempting to use its siblings.

The worst brand has to be Lexmark, the ink cartridge lasted longer than the printer

was half price a few months back and got decided to get one.

not a bad printer for the price.

I have this printer - its awesome. I got it from PC world a while back, a little bit cheaper i think. I think i paid £34.99. Its good, I would recommend this.

Every printer I've ever dealt with has been bothersome - even expensive ones in the workplace. I think it’s in their nature to be a pain in the ass.

This is one of the worst printers I have ever had. The scanning function was brilliant, but the printer periodically wouldn't work, and now its just knackered and doesnt work at all. When I try to print...nothing happens. It lasted for 6 months - not printing very often, maybe once every 2 weeks. I'd say stay away .

Got this for £30 ish from Tesco at Xmas last year.That included a 10% staff discount
Worth the money

ive had epson printers for years,if anything happens to it just ring customer services.they replace it normally within 2 days.they never ask to see receipts so just say u had it less than 12 months and they replace it.

buy a ciss sytem for it, save lots of monies! on ink!

I have been using Epson printers for the last 12 years and always use compatible inks these don't tend to dry out like the Epson inks and at 79p per cart which is what I currently pay

Gosh thats good, where do you get the carts from please?

I bought one of these at this price a few weeks ago. A set of 12 cartridges (3 sets) is £6.36 delivered on eBay. That's a full set of inks for £2.12, bargain.

The printer feed is noisy as people have said but the scan and photocopy function works well and the printing software isn't an issue for me as I mainly print word documents and web pages.

All in all it's a top printer for £40.

good printer, i get my ink from ebay for this 12 INK CARTRIDGEs £7.89

They do work but unless you're doing an awful lot of printing it's not worth the hassle IMHO. The cheap CISS kits don't have good O-Rings meaning air passes by them and you get ink supply issues to the printer

Guys, just wanted to give my comments views as I bought this very printer when my trusty £40 4 year old Brother all in 1 gave up.

OK first the good: 1) It's cheap to buy and cheap to run. 2) Very low initial outlay and ink is cheap. 3) It prints fairly quickly. Pages seem to fly out.

Now the Medium points: 1) No LCD on the printer only a few LED's so you don't really know what's going on if there's a problem unless the PC is on etc. 2) It's very noisy, especially at feeding paper - I sometimes don't print late (like 2am in the morning, if my wife's in bed as I'm sure I'm gonna get a rollocking!)

Now the Bad: 1) Uses a lot of ink. 2) Problems feeding anything but 80g paper. Tried the other day to print out on some photo paper but the stupid thing refused to feed it, could be the paper, it's just too shiny, but I know this went through no probs on my old Brother.

So in summary, it's a good buy and gives you a colour inkjet and scanner and media card reader for a cracking price, (My old brother only read cards at USB 1, so this is much faster at USB2).

If you're on a budget or just want something everyday for the kids to print out all their homework or CBeebies, this could be just perfect.

Bottom line: If you want something with a bit more... then spend a bit more.

Anyone who has this printer or any other i would recommed a CISS because you get about 7 - 8
refils for £10 pounds for a complete set of colours i use one and it's excellent.:thumbsup:

agreed , ive been down that route , i never buy pattern inks now :x !!!

I have used compatiles for years in all my epson printers, (had 3 in 12 years) Some have got blocked but as they were usually under warranty at the time I had epson out who showed me how to take the sponge out in the back of the printer, clean it and then run a software prog I got from ebay to make the printer think it had new print heads in. This usually works for 4 or 5 years. usually I only change my printer as it doesn't match the lounge lol or I fancy a change. I was silly 6 months ago and got a Canon, what a mistake, the ink cost me as much as the printer so, sold it on and went for an Epson SX115. Been happy ever since.

great another xmas presie... cant go wrong for that price. disposable printer. haha :santa: heat and rep

As above.... even if the print heads do clog using compatibles...

Epson:
Printer = £40
Compatibles = £12 for 3 sets
Yearly cost = £52

HP / Lexmark printer
Printer = £20 (probably not that cheap but for arguments sake)
Ink carts = £20 for black, £30 for colour x 3 of each = £150
Yearly cost = £170

Now which one should I buy?

A lot of ink cartridges for sale on Amazon (and no doubt Ebay:-D) are "expired" ie at least 2 years past the manufactured date:x

@ mumbojumbo

Eh? Think we have our wires crossed buddy....

My post was in reply to people who were complaining about compatible inks clogging the print head once the printer was out of warranty. Thats why I compared against HP / Lexmark using originals...

Proving the point that even if you only use compatibles for a year and then you have to buy a new printer, its still cheaper than a Lexmark / HP using originals.

Your comparison using Jettecs in both is a completely different matter.

Hi debbuck,

How do you do that? - I have a DX4800 that has decided to stop printing - I have even used cleaner cartridges - but to no avail.

Before it goes to the tip I'm quite happy to get a little "rough" with it!

bought this from tesco and its a great wee printer ~ hot deal if you can get one ~ well done op:-D

It's all about how OFTEN you use them.

When I was in a period of daily use, I had no problems, but now I use printing much less, and when I do use it, it can be WEEKS between uses. They just do not cope with that, so ow I am stuck with buying printers where I can keep a spare set of cartridges in, and IF the printer has clogged in the meantime, I can get it working again in seconds, not be stuck as I was with my last printer (and others in the past!)
(the alternative is keep a whole brand new printer spare!)

Only Hewlett Packard still have the heads inbuilt now (well, in the main!), and the cost is silly. OK, I can refill in the meantime, until the heads deteriorate, but that's a pain, whereas the Brother & Epson printers I had used very cheap ink, but clogged!

It's a trade off, and either way, I haven't found a winning solution, just an expensive one that offers a sort of reliability!

Yes, and just what do yo use in the "normally 2 days?"

Go out and buy another?
My problem is when I wan to print, I NEED to print, so normally 2 days isn't ANY use at all :-(

Under ordinary economics, it is obvious, unfortunately if you NEED a printer working WHEN you need it, the dear option wins!

Mad, and I can't think of many situations like that (apart perhaps from cars, where reliability sometimes has to be the main factor in choosing) but that's the problem I HATE about printers :-(
