    Recommend me a sub-£100 printer

    Hi

    Could anyone recommend me a sub-£100 printer? I'm looking for something to print off high-quality photos every now and again but mainly for lots and lots and lots of black/white documents, so very low running costs and separate black/colour ink cartridges are important. We've got a Canon Smartbase 210 here at home (allinone jobby) that seems pretty good and I've seen it at just under a ton with £5 ink cartridges but I just want a straight-forward printer.

    Cheers

    Z
