Epson 1290 for a reliable middle quality
priced 160 -300 depending used or new
Epson 2100 for top quality reliable.
again 300 - 700 depending new or used
I have used both especially 1290 good workhorse.
the 2100 is expensive to run but is absolute the best quality. remember always use epson ink,
Not refills or alternatives for best continious quality and of course epson paper!
There is no doubt that they are best, I have proven it for myself... I may be able to help with second user printer but new is a case of trying the big boys (Dabs/Watford etc.)
