I use to have the Epson 600, It was the top of the range when it came out costing over ?300.00 and an excellent printer. A little nosey in operation and frequent head cleans, but good print quality.
Using a Canon i850 now and it's superb, quiet, fast and laser quality. This model has just been replaced with the i865 and it's very similar. The i850 is in the review section at the top of the page. [Blue link]. j.
