New printer / scanner advice please

  Grandad99 00:15 08 Aug 2014

I need to replace my old printer and scanner so am considering a 3in1

The most important requirements are for reasonably high quality scanning of 35mm colour negatives that will produce acceptable A4 prints and good quality colour printing. I'm creating a family history from 1975 - 2005 negatives.

I've only had Epson and would appreciate suggestions for this or any other make, ideally no more than $150 (that's pounds sterling but Dell keyboard doesn't provide this)

Take a read here for starters - All-in-One with 35mm scanning - advice

Or consider a reasonably priced Photo Scanner - There are other makes available.

Canon for you to consider and within your price bracket

For slides etc I have a Canon 8000f - now there is a newer model. It is purely a scanner. When I looked at this there were no all in ones that handled slides. I would look at the

Canonscan 9000f

Woolwell - you are correct. I overlooked the Canon Pixma's ability to scan slides.

John Bunyan - I have the Canon CanoScan 8600F and it is an excellent scanner for slides. I have been searching most of the morning but finding it very difficult to find an All-in-One that will do the job.

Grandad99 - One option would be to purchase this EPSON which would do what you require and have £60 left over to buy a printer, or towards one.

Thanks everyone.

Earlier today I came to the same conclusion as Northumbria61 and ordered the V730 - surprised to find that the cheapest was PC World.

Woolwell, can I change the keyboard setup to UK?

Grandad99 - I have also noticed that PC World have become more competitive in their pricing recently.
I am pleased to hear that you are getting "sorted".
