Evening,

Can anyone recommend a reasonable priced printer for around £50.

My father has been told about the Lexmark Z1480. Has anyone got any views?

Thanks

Angry ;-)

Personally I don't like Lexmark - I prefer Epson.

Plenty of cheap printers to choose from here ... click here

I just bought an IP4500 Canon which is about £63 online but today I managed to get PCW to price match it to £49.99.

Good printer with auto-duplex printing and cheap quality carts from Choice Stationery... £2.79 I think.

Got second Technotigers opinion had a few free with systems over the years not up to much, I go for Epson every time.

Epson or HP?

HP every time, I have a Photosmart D7360 but the cheaper model D716 is the same engine, only with a smaller screen.
I don't like Lexmark and would not have one even it it were given to me. As for Epson I have heard that the quality has dropped in recent years, and there seems to be a spot of bother with print heads blocking up I was told when I was looking to replace mine just before Christmas.
Also told on this forum by a couple of guys that Canon printers were good at first but a few only lasted until the guarantee was up.

Blimey mine must be the acception to the rule then bought an Epson R240 from amazon last year (£2 for compat carts) and the photo quality printing is superb...

That model is a couple of years old.
