Printer/Copier/Scanner for £70

  s99Raj 17:18 03 Sep 2003

Does anyone know anything about the Printer/Copier/Scanner that Aldi is selling for about £70?

Is it worth the money? Is it any good?

USB printers won't do everything you want.

I can only suggest you go and take a look for yourself and check out the price and availability of ink cartridges,I Have for the past 5 years had various HP all-in-ones, and at present have the HPD145 USB which does everything i could possibly want,except make the coffee.

I think it's a X85 Had one a while back

I think it's a lexmark X85 click here if the review is anything to go by, nice piece of kit at a very good price. But " images lack detail and the all-important skin tones don't look natural " not really a photo printer.

OK - thank you all. I'll go and have a look at it soon. I'm not too bothered about pictures, as long as text is good and the photocopying is legible.

PCW was clearing these machines out at £65.99 recently.A few months ago the same machine was selling for £149.99 then reduced in price fairly rapidly.Lexmark are introducing a few new models in the UK about now. I have recently purchased a Lexmark X5150 4in1, which as been selling in the USA for quite awhile now, and as just started to sell in volume, here in the UK. The price that I paid for this newer model £109.99 less £20.00 promo = £89.99.

beware the replacement cartridges are nearly as much as the price of the machines.They will supply you (bundled with the machine) with Light user cartridges which will not last very long.
