Advise on new wireless printer PLEASE

  Ballie 17:19 15 Jun 2009

Hi, about a year ago I bought a Canon MP210 (a wired printer/scaner/copier) is was only £35 new and came with a cash back from canon (which I claimed) so it only ended up costing me £18, sounds very cheap I hear you cry however, this thing just eats print cartridges like you wouldn't belive so over the last year its cost me a small fortune.

I now want to upgrade to a wireless printer/scanner/copier can anyone please advice or recommend on a machine that is a little less hungry for ink! my budget is about £100.

The Canon advert (to the right on this page as I type) leads you to the MP620 with a £30 cash back offer. click here

PC World have this on offer "Collect at Store" for £125 click here

Cheap Cartridges are available from Choice Stationery click here The Inkrite compatibles work out at roughly £25 a set and Canon Originals £45. The former are perfectly acceptable. Note that there are five individual inks so if you run out of one colour cartridge you aren`t throwing away the other two colours as you would with a single tricolour cartridge system.

I set one of these up last week and the printer is impressive. Easy wi-fi setup and the flip up screen and controls are easy to work. You can even print direct from your camera or memory stick. Job done within budget.
