    Printer?

    I know they may be a bit old fashioned now but I really need a printer at times. Not necessarily looking for the cheapest as they may need the most expensive ink but looking for a good deal for that one that you can replace the ink at a reasonable price please.

    Don't go for a Lexmark then, good printers and cheap, but when the ink runs out it literally is cheaper to buy another printer with ink than to just buy the ink.

    Depends what you need it for?
    Dell c1760nw colour laser £90 - £100 and 3rd party cart set £13 - £20 from several suppliers. Approx 2000 page yield per set.

    Stick with an Epson, inks are 10 a penny. For everyday use a cheap Epson all in one will be perfect for you.

    But as Jack above has stated, a colour laser could be a good option if you want to fork out £100 for the printer, if not just get a cheap Epson for under £50 or so.

    A printer.. old fashioned.
    Let me think as I look at my HP C5280....... yeh ,you could be right. oO

    Another vote for Epson, Just get a cheap one and inks are very cheap too :).

    be aware though if you do use compatible inks and not genuine inks and you have a fault it may invalidate your warranty.

    Epson XP-322

    quite a good printer for £55, wifi, email printing, scanner, copy etc etc compatible inks are cheap on eBay, and used without any issues

    As the OP " I really need a printer at times" implies occasional use, do Epson's still clog up if not used regularly?

    HP instant ink, I pay just £3.49 a month and HP send me the ink. I can print out 100 pages regardless to what is on the page (It could be 100 borderless A4 prints!) printer that support this start from around £50

    A printer is old fashioned? In comparison to what?

    Brother Printers, very reliable, plenty of cheap compatible cartridges.

    As a Lexmark printer owner (it was free with the laptop), I have to agree with this!

    My experience with occasional use colour inkjets was that they were fine when new. After being left for 2 months you would then need to run so many cleaning cycles to get the print head unblocked that you would need to buy new (expensive) cartridges. 5 years ago I bought a Dell (1320c) colour laser that included two sets of cartridges all for £133 - they lasted 4 years and I'm now on another set of sub £20 compatibles. - so running cost including initial purchase is currently £30/year (and falling). Anytime someone wants to print they just turn on the printer and get excellent quality first time (which was not the case with Epson inkjets)

    A similar deal is still available from IJT - wireless printer plus 3 sets (1 Dell, 2 compatible) for £170 -link Can't say anything about the pros/cons of the particular model and I buy my new compatibles from Amazon

    ^This.

    Seriously OP, just get that. A Dell C1760NW. And as it uses toner, it will never dry up. Has excellent reviews as well.

    Kodak has the cheapest ink.

    Just have a look at eBay or goggle it, a fair few cheap suppliers. But if you are going to go down the route of saying you can't see 10 ink cartridges for a penny, could we just skip it and carry on with our lives

    But they no longer make printers.
