Thanks! Now you've got me looking at the same setup ... Damn HUKD and its helpful community!
I have the ET-3750 which has the same "PrecisionCore Print Head" with same number of nozzles per colour. Both printers are using same type of ink: pigment black and dye colours (102). Because this printers are using pigment black ink the results on any gloss paper will not be very good as it will try to make black using the colour inks. The initial printed photos were not great, colours were different from what was on my calibrated screen. These were printed using the printer colour management. I have made some custom printer profiles (ICC) for different types of photo papers. Using these profiles I had great results for personal use photos.
I think the 27XX (now 28XX) has an even smaller screen than the 48XX. 1.5" vs 2.5".
If this has the same screen size as the one i bought the (ET-2751) then it is TINY. Much smaller then our (then) 10 year old HP AIO it replaced, and when it's showing you which button to press, it's almost impossible to make out the symbol without looking really closely. That said, i have had a lot less problems with it than the temperamental HP, and the ink tank system was great during pandemic/home schooling, when we had to print a lot of stuff out. Still only 25% through the black and maybe 15% through the coloured inks, and we have printed hundreds of pages. I have found photo prints to be acceptable. Not breath-taking, but fine.
DJ8: I've got two, now discontinued. But one is a Brother colour laser, cost £120, the toner that came with it lasted 4 years, replacement toner cost £35. Other is a Dell colour one, cost £100 and replacement toner is £17 - Deals pop up on here sometimes. After a few months of not using one, they will print perfectly without having to clean the heads etc. Will have a look. Won't be printing a lot but little one starting nursery soon you never know (:I I've got this one on awaiting delivery for £49.99: Epson Expression Home XP-2100 Print/Scan/Copy Wi-Fi Printer, Black https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07VV6CPSB/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_M85F94KYTAZ2X9WA0WXM The toners seem quite cheap on this

Looking for a printer, could you suggest something please?
You'll save a fortune buying a laser printer. Injets are terrible.
It's a nice workhorse, but it can have issues with the auto feed on the scanner. Sometimes collecting more than one sheet at once, or just taking it around the roller and keeping it there. It might be temperature dependent, as my room temperature is about 13 degrees, and I don't tend to notice the issue in Summer

I can't comment on ink tank systems but my colour laser is perfect for occasional printing. I've had it for over 5 years and only ever had to change the toner once. It's not photo quality though and it's a Dell model you can't get anymore.
Are ink-tank printers ideal of only printing only on occasions and wanting to avoid dry wasted cartridges on inkjets? I’ve only ever had inkjets, don’t often print much ever since most postage labels can be done via post office QR codes and such like but on the odd occasion I do print labels or need to scan and photocopy documents and then none for months I did ponder on a laser based on the fact they can be put away and used without any issues. Not sure if all-in-one laser scanner printers are in same bracket as a good all-in-one ink-tank system vs laser drum and toner consumables?
Is there a way to check which stores have this in stock? Thanks
I picked up the last one from Hanley a couple of weeks ago, it was yellow labelled down to £84. It had been £140 for the previous few weeks. I didn’t post as it was probably the only one to be reduced so low, the Hanley store is just having the make over now (much larger clothing section) and a smaller electronic section it seems.
I have the 2750, the ink in them lasts forever and the bottles for refills are dirt cheap, but you have to use decent thick paper and not the asda price reems, otherwise you'll end up with blobs of ink all over. Really good on photo paper too.
Meant to add special papers but my fat fingers hit enter.
stethorn 04/03/2022 23:21OK cool, you don't happen to know what it's like prining on special paper such as card and phoor paper do you? Seeing mixed reviews and not sure if its just people's stupidity. Quality is good on paper if you take tour time and use the best print settings, not the best mind you but good to be sure.
Heat added just ordered I liked the sound of this printer thx krjgreen
I was lucky and got the recent ET2810 for £120. It’s a great printer. Quality output at low cost. Recommended
I’ve only used Tesco’s own brand photo paper in mine and the results were very poor. Not sure if that was the printer or the paper though

Seems decent but issue for me issue is it doesn’t have a document feeder which is damn useful for scanning or copying several pages
I refilled the cartridges on my 8022 printer and it doesn’t work that well. Luckily I bought the printer in Costco last year, so I’ll be returning for a full refund as not fit for purpose, Hp expect me to pay £85 for cartridges that barely do over 500 pages can get lost. Especially as my Samsung laser printer over 10k pages in mono for £40 which satisfies 90% of needs. I’ll probably get an ecotank My son dismantled my previous printer an hp 8740, so not that old, as it wasn’t printing properly and I didn’t have time to clean it. Now it prints very well. He also noted that hp deliberately built in obsolesce into the printer as a crucial part in the ink delivery mechanism is a part that’s best described as thick cling film. He replaced it with something he made on his 3d printer. It was this item that had failed. So, a perfectly working 4 years old printer failed because of hp deliberate obsolesce design. Should be made illegal.
I have this and i can't figure out if there is a sleep mode which only activates when i send something to print
I have an old hp business inkjet with a CISS set. My problem is the print heads drying up. It wasn't a problem when I could buy them for a tenner on eBay but they are a lot more expensive now. Do these epsoms have the same issue?
does it comes with FULL SIZE ink bottles or the small ones ?

Carefully check out ink prices before you purchase. You could easily be better off with a printer just over £100, but with much cheaper ink!
Would never again go CISS. Perhaps the tech has moved on alot since i had one on an old Epson but it was nothing but hassle. I'll stick to my Canon TS8051 and my 4 sets of inks for tenner (probably can't get them that cheap now, but i only get through 2 sets a year).
Try harder - the only thing wrong about this printer is that the print head is fixed - it has "proper" ink carts. Meaning if you choose poor quality ink the print head is likely to clog and it's not as easy as other printers that have combined ink heads & tank to clean. You can refill the carts that come with the printer.
I returned my ink tank to Epson for repair, the ink was almost empty, didnt have to do anything to the cartridges for posting as checked carefully with them before packing in a box. It was repaired under warranty and they refill each ink tank full before sending back. Again no special packaging. The ink WILLL NOT leak everywhere like other printers. Best printer I ever had as get hundreds of pages from each tank around £6, puts the rest to shame.
Out of stock
I'd imagine the ink would leak everywhere so it's a customer return likely not opened or unwanted
Would maybe worth ringing to ask but from the way the ecotank works, they wouldn't be able to resell it in my opinion.
But it will still have the problem of your screen being white, so any dark scenes or parts that are supposed to be black will then be the ambient light level. Ideally I'd like a gigantic OLED. But I haven't seen any in 100" and I imagine if there were any they'd be £20k ha ha
try out the LG LASER projectors - my HU810P is VERY bright even on overcast days with the blinds open. it's approaching a TV in terms of daylight performance - without the glare!
Exactly the problem, any projector looks rubbish in a slightly light room as you black levels are however light the room is. We put shutters over the front door in our basement and blinds for the windows to get it dark enough.
Ha yes makes sense now. I had same issue when I got my oled and realised amp didn't allow 4k......another £400 later. Mrs wasn't impressed!
Yes,very succintly put! My av reciever is an older Sony model with no '4K pass thru' as you put it. I knew there was a technical name for it but i'm just not clued up on that sort of thing (y)
hiya I am looking for a printer for occasional printing. whats the best buy which can use 3rd party ink/comp ink? thanks ps. are any of the cheaper epson any good? thanking you in advance
The XP-2100 is a decent little printer and being able to run 3rd party ink cartridges can save you a fortune. Wifi option was very slow for me, but direct connection works well Epson driver crapware aplenty and it does complain that you are using non-Epson carts, but apart from that, works well.
Very slow bough brand new from Argos £44.99
Ohmigosh what's the best option???

Just had a look. Check out a seller on ebay called go-inks. Example, 10 inks 4 black, 2 cyan, 2 magenta & 2 yellow £8.99 free delivery.. Just an example, could be cheaper... maybe.
Awful range of printers. I’d never go back to Epson.
Need a laser version of this :(
There are a lot of reviews on Amazon claiming poor paper feed and printing. I usually avoid refurbished due to awful experiences with Dell and Argos Outlet. I think I'll give this a miss but looks like a good price if it works.
Thsnks OP. Any printer the first thing to look at is the print cartidge cost. Had a look on eBay and you can get 4 compatible cartridges for around £8. So on the surface it appears cheap. Makes you wonder why they needed refurbishing /were returned, though? Reviews say not good for color photos. https://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/epson-xp-3100
