Will be using for personal, small business use. Will be used for everyday printing but also want for photo/colour leaflet printing.
Thanks

I have the R300, superb photo printing and no problems.

I have the R300 Photo and it is a superb printer for photos, but may not be suitable for small business use (I use a Brother laser printer for that side of things).

Depends how much text you want to print. If it's a lot, you might want to consider something a bit quicker and more cost effective.

any one of the three will give you good results,the epson R200\R300 will also print on cd\dvd disks,the C86 will produce good photos on any paper,as it uses durabite inks

Yep, the R200, which my son has, or R300, which I have. Six cartridges, so you only replace the one that runs out. The ink seems to last for ages. Original cartridges from here click here good value for money and quick delivery.

There isn't a great price difference so the R300, with it's card reader, looks the better bet.

I will never buy another for various reasons.
Buy the Canon - I promise you you won't regret it. I have just bought the Pixma6000D and the pictures are of a far superior quality to the Epson and importantly the Canon is far more economical with ink.
