    Question New printer advice

    Looking for a new colour inkjet printer, USB interface at around £150

    I've seen a cannon i865 that seems to fit the bill any good/bad experiences out there with this printer

    Has the cannon got the facility to print directly on to printable cd/dvd media.
    If it does how easy to get good results

    Thanks in advance for any advice

    From my own research Canons in the £150+ range are supposed to be better buys than the alternatives, I'd go for it, though I have no personal experience of that model.

    the new epsons (r200 @ £99, r300 @£130 and r500 Ai1 @£200ish (all use seperate ink tanks) also the photo 900 and 960 printers) can print directly onto cd/dvd media i dont think any canons can yet tho

    although canon's are cheaper to run the print quality aint quite as good with some of them , and im fairly sure you can get some sort of resetting kit for the epsons so you can refill them
