I can advise you about one to NOT get , the Epson SX425W , the pile being returned to PC World in Slough is almost as big as the pile for sale .

A client of mine returned his with several faults and was asked " why on earth did you buy this one ", when he told the " Tech Guy " it was because he was recommended by one of their salesmen the guy shook his head and said they all knew it was a "pos" and were trying to put people off .

My client ended up buying an HP wireless ( not sure which one ) which works like a dream .

My son and daughter have both purchased the Canon MP560 and are delighted with it. The only drawback from my point of view is the inability to print directly onto a DVD.
