    Try the Canon i865 , costs about £100 , does very good photos as well as CDs and plain paper.

    Yeah the canon is top, you could look at a more expensive model if you wanted to spend more, but the i865 is extremely good value. The good thing about canons is that they're also cheap to run.

    I brought the i865 about a month back.
    I will never buy another Epson printer.
    This printer is simply amazing. Photo prints are jaw dropping, and CD printing is excellent.

    If you wanted to spend more, you could consider a canon I965 or I990.

    I had chance to compare the prints from the i965 and i865, and i found it very hard to find noticable differences. These differences easily changed depending on the light i was viewing them in though (the differences were *very* small), and i just couldnt justify the cost of the i965 over the i865 when it did such an excellent job.

    Ive not seen any off the i990.

    I also recommend the i865. Only problem i've had is that the ink gauges that show up on the computer stay full then suddenly drop to almost empty. But other than that, it GREAT!!
