Multifunction devices for dummies

Hi everyone. I lost my copy of the latest PC Ad magazine and I was wondering if anyone could quickly check what is the top MFD this month. I think it was a Canon or an Epson, £150.

Furthermore, any other advice or recommendations would be really appreciated. I'll be starting uni soon and am looking for a decent MFD as I expect to be doing lots of photocopying as well as printing. Price isn't hugely important but obviously the cheaper, the better.

Thanks people!

Should have added..HP,Canon,Epson,Lexmark are all very good. At present I am using a Lexmark X5150 [very good quality] and a very old HP OfficeJet 590, which is now about 7/8? years old,and as chugged away merrily without giving any problems so far.

Lexmark can become expensive with ink usage, so I would possibly suggest Epson as the cheaper to run printer.

Thanks <b>spuds</b>

I looked at the MFD Top 5 on the site (which you linked to) but having found the lost issue of PC Ad I recall that the page hasn't been updated - top of the pile is now the Epson Stylus CX5400/6600. But following your recommendations of Epson I'll probably go for the 6600. Running costs are important to a hard-up tax dodger like myself...
