    Need a Cheap Replacement Printer

    Well it seems like my old epson is giving up so I need a cheap replacement.

    Essentially I just need it for uni work (mostly black ink) and so I only intend to keep this new printer for less than 2 years. I normally buy originals but for this printer, I will be using compatibles to keep costs low, unless this I a bad idea?

    I have seen this:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Epson-Stylus...0480731&sr=1-4 £25

    or

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/222003 This one is also £25 due to offer plus I get free next day delivery

    If you don't need colour I would go for a cheap laser such as :

    If you must have Inkjet, then go for a Kodak printer - one of the lowest cost per page with decent quality prints

    The Epson will be cheaper to run with the cost of the compatibile ink carts being really quite low
