    All in one printer

    I'm looking for a new all-in-one printer. Looking at the £100-150 price range. Here are some I have shortlisted


    Canon MP560 or MP640
    HP Officejet 6500
    Epson SX610FW

    The Canon has excellent reviews and a good reputation but lacks a document feeder. The HP is supposedly very economical on ink but I hate the bloatware that comes with HP printers and not sure about photo quality. Don't know much about the Epson.

    Any thoughts?

    Anyone got one?

    Re: All in one printer

    I have had two epson printers and they was crap. you had to clean the heads around 10times to get it to print properly. plus there software is worse than the hp software. it never uninstalled properly.

    I Currently have a HP all in one and its good. I do agree about the bloated software but the device is excellent. prints great everytime.

    This is pretty much exactly my situation too. Great device, bloatware is very frustrating!! Mine has built in memory card slots and a USB port that you can scan to rather than using the bloatware though, and this works very well indeed.

    Re: All in one printer

    Not on your list, but have you looked at any Brother printers?

    I guess it depends what is more important to you, for me it was the document feeder and scanner, rather than photo printing. About the only thing I use the printer for is electronic boarding passes, the odd google maps print out and some letters. Their software isn't that bad either, and as mine has ethernet built in, all the multi function aspects are available to all my systems.

    Re: All in one printer

    I've used a previous all-in-one Canon and it does the job.

    I'm looking into Brother at the moment.

    Re: All in one printer

    Bought a J6410 myself - all-in-one with borderless printing, automatic document feeder, duplex, integrated wi-fi and so on, compatible with the HP XL cartridges as well. Was about £100 when I bought it, think the price has dropped since then.

    Bloatware is a pain in the neck, but after my Windows 7 install I didn't download the drivers - just let Windows do it automatically. And as a result, it works perfectly - no junk installed and no problems, so I'm pretty happy.

    A quick google suggests that you got yourself a bargain! That's a pretty good featureset though - might have to look into that one next time I replace...

    Re: All in one printer

    I have a Canon MP980, which is more expensive that what you are looking at, but I am very happy with it. The print quality and functionality is excellent, but it is expensive on ink.

    Wow, that wasn't what I was expecting.

    It was really odd actually, was about £110, so I mulled it over but thought I'd hold off for a bit. Then it flew up to £160, and I thought I'd mucked up. Then it dropped to £100, so I bought it before the price rose again - direct from HP UK. Then it dropped to £80 and I thought I'd mucked up again. Clearly it's gone back up since then

    Those initial fluctuations (£110-£160-£100) were all in the space of 2 months, so it did seem fairly crazy - I've never seen any other product do that... no idea why that was the case though.

    HP are currently doing the Photosmart Premium for ~£99 - it's probably on it's way out but in theory it's a £180 printer. Worth a look?
