Inkjet photo printer - recommendations ?

  iscanut 19:35 07 Dec 2005

Am soon to change my ageing HP Inkjet 720C and buy a new one that will excel at printing out photos as well as being used as a basic black ink printer for word proc. Has anyone any views as to the best on the market at the moment ?

Canon also try before you buy - click here

I always go for Canon.

Removable Ink Heads
Separate Ink Tanks
Clear Cartridges with a light ink level meter (no guessing or page counting)
Excellent quality


I have an old S630 and my mum has a IP4200. Both great

may I ask a supplemenary question please - trying to avoid costly inks for inkjet printers - what are the options - suggestions center on bubble jet printers - are they the same ?

One rule of thumb is that the cheaper the printer the more expensive the replacement original or compatible inks and vice versa.

But it's not cast in stone.

Best way to find out is to provisionally select the printers in which you are interested in and then check out replacement prices at ChoiceStationary or similar outlets.

Canon IP8500, or if replaced its successor. Fantastic quality, 8 ink system, prints on almost anything including CD's DVD's.

I always use to go with Epson printers, but last year I switched to a Canon i990 and I'm well pleased with it. Excellent photo's
