A3 printer

I need to purchase an A3 printer, but looking at epson and HP they are around the £300.
Does anyone know of a cheaper brand but still with good quality printing, or are there any places which do quality used printers.

Because of the relatively small market for A3 printers compared with A4 models, they are necessarily going to be more expensive - more than twice the price of a similar specification smaller size printer.

Uless you have an awful lot of A3 printing to do, it would be more economical to take your work to a local printshop - that's what they're there for.

Thanks for that, but I need to do a moderate amount of printing on a regular basis, so on my calculation it would gradualy pay for itself

OK. In that case look at pj123's suggestions.

Be careful buying a very cheap printer - these usually compensate for their cheap price by being very expensive on ink.

Thanks guys.

The HP 1280 is just what I'm looking for
