pj123 "all in one printers are not a good bet".
Well, depends, sort of horses for courses argument.
I have been using an HP officejet d145 for the past 18 months,it takes up little more space than a printer but adequately carries out 4 tasks plus it takes all sizes of photo cards. It can be used stand alone when computer is off and does superb colour faxes which I need. I haven't had a single problem with it
As Creditman says the ink cartridges are expensive but if you value reliability it is not a bad buy.
I just know that after this it is going to expire first thing tomorrow. ;-)))
