why there has been so little response to your thread.
A little time looking through the threads, and using the word "printer" in the search window. This will reveal more than thirty lines of discussion in the last week.

How about investing in a copy of PCA and looking in the back, visit the sites of several other magazines and look at their review sections.
And when you've had a wee rummage, come back and ask something along the lines of -
Photo Printing - Zigger 251 or PST 880 - Which is better?
Then people can give you their own experience of each machine. But beware! There are as many disaster stories as there are plaudits.
