What Printer

  Luca M 13:46 08 Aug 2003

I want to buy a printer that is cheap to run, has excellent quality for photos and crisp black text. I am looking for one under £100. Any ideas. Thanks

I definatley dont want an epson. I have just brought a epson C80 and the printheads are already blockled and the print quality is terrible. I thinking more HP, Canon and Lexmark.

cheap to run

under £100

As the Hardware prices drop - the Consumable prices rise

Wait till September. HP are bringing out the Photosmart 7260 printer. Might be worth a look if you want a machine for £89.99. Only one problem, as with all printers. Cartridge costs can make a 'cheapy' into a much dearer item.

I also looked at the hp deskjet 5552. Is this any good?

Thanks for your help everyone. I have decided to keep the epson for a while untill the christmas sales. But I think I will still buy the HP Deskjet 5552
