    Question Best Printers?

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a printer that can print decent print outs. Has wifi and scanning ability and cost of ink fairly cheap, looking to spend something like £120 for the pirnt, and spend no more than say £30 pounds on ink cartridges.

    I just stick to Canon nowadays. Never been dissapointed with the print quality from a Canon but have been from other brands. Not sure if it is just luck on the Canon models I bought though. On the minus I would say the Canon models tend to be pretty heavy and expensive on ink.

    Re: Best Printers?

    If you print 100s of pages every week one of the HP Officejet Pro 8600s might be a good investment...

    HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One (print, scan, copy, fax) - £189.99 delivered
    - colour printer, scanner, copier and fax
    - low running costs due to it's separate XL ink cartridges
    - duplexer unit (can print and scan both sides of a page automatically)
    - 50 page automatic document feeder for effortless scanning/copying/faxing
    - digital sender function (digitise documents to network storage without the use of a computer)
    - networked memory card reader (plug memory card into the printer and it will show up on your computer)
    - fully networked (wired & wireless) so everyone can print & scan
    - incoming fax mails can be forwarded to your email address
    - works with Windows and Apple Mac computers

    There is also a non-plus model (no duplex or legal size scanning/lesser touch screen/smaller capacity ADF) for £134.44 delivered, then register for £30 cashback and the same 3 year on-site warranty. It also uses the same high capacity individual cartridges.

    3 years FREE on-site replacement service registration (must register within 30days or purchase)

    £50/£30 cash back registration (must apply within 30day days of purchase)

    The printer does come with a set of standard size cartridges (not XL!) in the box, so you may want to order a spare set of XL ones right away...

    full set of 4 x genuine HP XL cartridges plus some photo paper (cheaper than buying cartridges individually) £71.90 delivered

    or

    genuine XL black cartridge (yield = 2300pages @ 5%)
    genuine XL cyan cartridge (yield = 1500pages @ 5%)
    genuine XL magenta cartridge (yield = 1500pages @ 5%)
    genuine XL yellow cartridge (yield = 1500pages @ 5%)

    Re: Best Printers?

    As above - Canon for the low volume bubblejet scanner wifi, Hp above that.
    I have the 5250 and can recommend it. You may need a newer model if you want Airprint from your fruity slab if you have one.

    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Re: Best Printers?

    The price of ink varies massively depending on which model you buy, certainly with HP. I have an HP Pro 8000, and the ink is about £60 for a full set, which will last a phenomenal length of time.

    Take an HP printer off the high street, and you'll pay £20-30 for a black and the same again for a colour, and it will barely last a few weeks.

    Re: Best Printers?

    Just in case if you have not got a printer, Canon MG 5350 could be a best bet.
    - Wi fi
    - Cloud print
    - Good for photograph
    - Ink not over than £30.00 ( refill )
