Buying Advice: Good Inkjet Printer

    I've lurked on this site for around a year now, but I'm new to posting so if this is in the wrong place I apologise.

    I'm looking for a good high-quality ink jet printer, but I have no idea where to start. I bought a Lexmark X4550 a year ago and its pretty rubbish; the software is bloated, the quality is ok but the really annoying part is how it says the ink is low and won't let you print even when you know for a fact that there is ink left in the cartridge, and the cartridges are SO expensive.

    So, I'm looking for a Colour Inkjet printer that is cheap to maintain but can accurately reproduce colours at a high DPI, and has a lightweight, non-intrusive software. As I said I have no idea where to start, looking at just overwhelms me with choices, so can anyone here give me a recommendation as to the best brands/ models? I'm going to budget myself at under £200.

    Many thanks


    That's So Strange. I Was Literally Just About To Post About Wanting A New Printer.

    You need to look at the cost of replacement ink cartridges - unless you do negligible amounts of printing. Generally, the cheaper the printer, the more expensive are relacement cartridges.

    I bought a Brother DCP-135C for about £40. Although it's got no more features than a HP, Epson or Lexmark costing a bit less, replacement cartridges work out at about £2.50 each instead of £10+ each. As a printer, the Brother is fine, not the quietest or the fastest but a reasonable printer at a reasonable price.

    same for epson 4 for a fiver

    Seems very good all in one. Although ink prices are not exaclty cheap, £4 per cartridge.

    I have an Epson R220. it takes 6 catridges, and they last a very long time.

    £1 per cartidge or less from, pathetically cheap. And quality is very good!

    I would say EPson all the way, ink is cheap and printers are decent.

    BTW you may want to print CD/DVDs aswell so take tghat into consideration aswell.
