Amazon Good Printer Buy

  RussB78 11:57 05 Oct 2011

I bought a Canon IP4850 Printer from one of Amazons Sellers on Friday 30th PM for £49-99 and received it yesterday morning, in the box was included a full set of inks and also a printer cable and the PP was just £1-99, The cheapest price for that printer where I live is £79-99 on it`s own.

I thought this was worth a mention on here for anyone looking for a Printer Bargain.

You're lucky to get a full set of inks (if by that you mean the cartridges are full) - the Brother I bought had a minmum amount of ink in, and needed replacing with full ones after a couple of weeks.

Hi onthelimit1

I should have said they are the compatible inks that were included, But that is what I would use anyway, the Canon inks work out at £59-97 for a set of five, I still think it was a very good buy for that money.

That sounds like the seller has opened the box, removed the genuine (but normally half full) Canon inks and replaced them with compatibles.

I'd be wary about buying genuine inks off that seller in case they're just starter cartridges they're selling.
