Just went to Staples looking for an A3 format printer. Saw they had the HP Officejet 7000 on the shelf for £99. When it's gone it's gone apparently.

Here is link to the spec for this printer.

Can't vouch for the print quality yet but will test it out tonight. It comes with an ethernet port too...

A great price for an A3 printer. Unfortunately I don't have the money to spare for this deal, but still wonder what the cartridges cost.

Genuine high capacity colours around £10 each.
Black around £10
High capacity black around £20

Recycled £13 high black, £7.50 high colours

Worth shopping around. Some good multi buy deals and not sure about compatible prices.

This is a real bargain. I'd buy it now but can't afford.

..or buy the All-in-one version with A3 printer/scanner/copier for £107 after cashback:

I'm seeing £180 at viking but that's still only £120 after cashback. So you're getting an A3 scanner, fax and memory card slots for peanuts. Very sweet deals, both of them.

Saw that printer but already have an Epson All in one so thought it would be overkill. Didn't realise there was cach back though or I would probably have gone with that.

There was a Brother A3 all in one too and that was pretty reasonably priced I seem to recall.

I tested the printer out last night and am pretty impressed. Not quite as good as the Epson 720 but for the occasional A3 print I want to do it's perfect and quite small in comparison to the "all in ones"

Appreciate all the replies.

I wouldn't of touched the brother one.

I was reading that this printer prefers plain paper. You need to do some driver tweaks to calibrate it for higher quality papers. Out of the box photos can look a bit washed out, so needs more black adding to compensate. Quality after fine tuning is supposed to be very good.

I'm jealous.

If you are looking for the printer on Viking Direct, search for Q23-5229495 and the price excl. VAT is £139.99. You also get a free camera, 9% Quidco.and free next day delivery.

Thanks for tip Mkerr

What free camera? I can't see that on Viking Direct.

I'm reluctant to buy a printer that requires manually tweaking for good results on paper, I've had enough problems with a Canon ip4500 that was never consistent. I do want a good A3 printer though, I need it capable of doing solid blocks of colour well (page layout and graphic design), as well as photos.

I think all printers should go through a calibration stage, just so, at the least the output matches what you see on your monitor. So tweaking for me is something I expect. A bit like you can buy monitors and TV's which most people will just use out of the box as is, but if you spend the time calibrating them properly you will get a better picture. Nothing wrong with the screens, they are just setup to produce a very bright picture that catches your eye in the showroom. In a similar way printers are setup to produce, for instance generic middle of the road saturated prints that catch your eye but don't reflect the kind of picture your seeing on your monitor. Everyone's screen will be different.

I also find I need to re-tweak the printer driver settings when I'm using different compatible inks but most printers allow you to make profiles so its easy to build up a list for different inks/screens/papers/types of print.

For me it wasn't a case of manually tweaking just figuring out where to find the settings. In the end it was pretty straight forward and the prints it produces are great. Not as good as the Epson 720 but I wasn't expecting them to be. It's very fast and very quite too and the networking required no setup at all.

The cartridge fitting was a little odd in comparison to what I'm used to but easy enough.

It was all pretty painless and my first attempt at A3 proved very Succesful.

All in all I'm pleased - if only the price of A3 photo paper wasn't so high X)
