Printer recommendation.

Can anyone reccomend a decent printer that will maily be used for printing documents etc. However, I will occasionally be printing photos taken by digital camera. My budget is around £100.

If you use it daily or do a lot of printing, use compatible cartridges. For occasional use, stick to originals as they are less likely to block the print heads.

Is this good for printing photos.

Any other suggestions to compare with??

I use the C80, which is more expensive, and a bit faster, but uses the same ink etc.

A dedicated photo printer will produce higher quality prints, because it uses six colours, but will also cost a lot more, and may be slower for normal printing. The Stylus C series are general purpose printers, but give excellent results, even on plain paper.

Okay - thanks for the advise

Recomended by P.C.Advisor no less. Second in the top ten and beaten by a £140 canon. At £60-£70 its gotta be a bargain.I got one and its good for the money
