new photo printer needed

  zincy 21:51 17 Mar 2007

Good evening all!

I am in need of a new printer, and have a budget for about £60. This printer will print mainly documents with a few photos in between? Any suggestions welcome...I also dun want to spend too much on ink, so any printer with relatviely cheap inks?

The Epson R265 sounds good for the money.

I get my replacement ink from Choice Stationery and find it good. Cheaper than Epson originals.

thank you for both your help
i think i will take the plunge and go for the epson r265.
Does anyone know that if they come with full set of ink or not?

Whist I cannot say for sure, I would imagine so.

However, the cartridges included with the printer often don`t last as long as replacement ones.

If want a good cheap printer but quality finish Get an Epson R200 photo printer from Amazon .I use Compatable ink but Epson Photo paper and I get really good colour prints.Amazon had the printer on offer £20 below list price .6 carts from printcartridge come at £11.99 delivered ,usually next day.
