I want to get the canon ip4500 for £64 which has had good reviews

click here

It will be used mainly for printing photos and some small brochures and leaflets. Never had an epson before but they are rated highly. Is there an epson one similar in price to the canon ip4500 I should consider?

Try the Epson R285

I'd suggest you stick with the Canon - I got one about a month ago and it's top class.

You can get PCWorld to price match the best online price - click here and click here

The advantage of the PCW price match is that you can take it home on the day cheaper than the online price so no waiting around for deliveries.

DS, thanks. Unfortunately they don't price match ebuyer which is £4 cheaper than amazon.

One ebuyer customer said his canon ip4500 stopped working after using compatible cartridges but I think it must have been a one off.

Sorry, if you take into account of the 10% discount it is cheaper. DS, does it work well with compatible cartridges? I read one of your posts about the ip4500.

I don't use compatibles because I have a laser for high volume printing so only use the inkjet when I want a quality finish or want something in colour.

Buying them from ChoiceStationery gets a complete set for about £35 delivered.

By the way, if you take the print out into PCW they will likely match it for you; take also a printout of the Amazon price and a printout of the web page listing the retailers whom they will price match.

For printing standard size photos (volume and single), is it cheaper to use the printer or get it done at asda/photoshop etc?

I get my photos printed via Photobox for a few pence each; they regularly have decent offers and you can build up a few credits.

Always worth a look over at click here

Me too.
If I have say 200 holiday snaps, I get them printed by Photobox; much cheaper and generally arrive the next day.

For my cropping, editing, scanning, Photoshopping and generally mucking about with photos I print them out on the Canon so I can see the results straight away.
