    Best wireless multifunction printer

    Hi all - looking for some advice on the best wireless multi-function printer to get. My main requirements are:
    - Must be wireless
    - Must copy & scan (but not so bothered about fax)
    - Mostly for printing text but will use for occasional photos
    - Must be cheapish to run i.e. cheap cartridges
    - I would ideally like duplex
    - I would ideally like ADF
    - I don't want to spend more than circa £150

    My shortlist so far is:
    - Canon Pixma MX870 £199 does everything I want but is a bit pricey and not out yet (maybe there will be some deals around when it's launched)
    - Canon Pixma MP560 doesn't have ADF or Fax but Amazon were doing them a while ago for circa £90 so for £100 difference I can live without them
    - Epson Stylus SX610 FW £135, doesn't have duplex and I'm worried the quality of the prints and the build quality won't be as good as the others (I have owned Canons and Epsons before and the Canons were always better quality)
    - HP Officejet Pro 8500 £120 ish (inc the £60 cashback HP are doing at the moment). does everything I want but the cartridges are expensive.

    Any thoughts, views from the HUKD community much appreciated.

    I'd go for Epson SX610 FW, I have the SX600 FW and it does everything. The Epson cartridges doesn't cost too much either.

    ive got the epson px700w, epson carts are very expensive but compatible ones are about £1 each, so well worth the money, i paid £149 from pc world

    none mate, to be honest i've been looking for the same and my shortlist is Kodak ESP7 or brother

    Yep I looked at the ESP7, well the ESP9 because it has ADF, but both of them get patchy reviews in terms of print quality, noise etc. which put me off. I've now found the MX870 for £175 at printware.co.uk so that is my current preferred option as it does everything and gets very good reviews.

    Not A Fan Of Canon's. Spoke To Alot Of Computer Places Plus Family In Computer Side And They Say Brother Any Day Of The Week As They Are Very Cheap To Run And As For Reliability Is Better Than Any Other
