    Advice needed please on a printer

    What is the best wi-fi printer to get?

    There are so many around with mixed reviews hard to tell which to buy!

    More info required such as:

    Usage - how often, what for, quality etc
    Type - laser, inkjet, just printer or all in one required etc
    Money - how much you willing to spend

    I'm sure others will have other ideas too

    good quality for photo printing, ink jet, around £100ish & all in one not really needed.

    Usage on and off nothing professional.

    Many thanks:thumbsup:

    Based on your price bracket, Which? says:

    EPSON PictureMate 260 - £97.86
    Which? score: 74%

    The Epson Picturemate 260, just like Epson’s Picturemate 290, is a Best Buy small photo printer. It’s an inkjet model, and although it only yields reasonable quality photos when printing from a computer, printing directly from a memory card or through a PictBridge connection produces great results.

    Speeds are good - a photo from a PictBridge compatible digital camera is produced in under a minute, while photos printed from computer or directly from a memory card are done in just over 40 seconds. It has a carrying handle and is able to run on batteries, which makes it very easy to carry around. And, we found that a full charge of the battery will provide sufficient power to print an impressive 102 photos.

    Basic set up and operation is generally straightforward, but the cartridges, which need to be inserted in the rear of the device, can be a little fiddly to replace. The LCD viewer can be tilted to reduce glare and both energy consumption and noise levels are pleasingly low.

    Pros: Great prints from memory card and PictBridge compatible digital cameras, low energy consumption, low noise levels

    Cons: Cartridges can be a little fiddly to replace

    Next one is EPSON PictureMate 240 @ £140 and score of 75%.

    How much more for wi-fi as well? or are they both wi-fi?

    Many thanks for your help:thumbsup:

    I recently bought the epson sx600fw and it is superb. Seperate inks so not so much to replace cartridges (only replace the one you need)
    Picture quality excellent, quick, double sided printing, card slots, wifi, fax.....
    Looks fantastic too in black.
    Amazon has it for about 98.00 but have a look around.

    Honestly, it was easy to set up and I cant think of one single fault

    I think you should get that little Pogo one, you know the one I mean? You can bluetooth your pictures to it? Also comes in pink ;-)

    to be fair my parents might like this! its numpty-proof!:p

    I got the HP C7180 all in one around a year ago, which has been superseded by the C7280 and is in or around your price range. Great printer, has Bluetooth, card slots, usb etc. 6 colour cartridges, including a larger black one that seems to last for ages. Wireless was simple to set up and the printer has never let me down yet. Takes up a lot of room though (I believe large footprint is the term bandied around). I would take this into consideration when buying, as well as the resolution, but probably the most important factor is the cost of cartridges.
