  • Printers.

    I am currently saving up for a new printer, all the money i have from my cards are going towards a new one. I would like an all in one PCS.
    The one i have at the moment is a HP and only a cheap one but when you print on card it seams to chew it up even when you set it to card. I would like to stick to HP if possible but i would like people to recommend printers. I also use it a lot for my cards.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi - I have an HP L7780, I bought it about a year ago and got it for about £230 from a reputable eBay supplier. It's a fantastic printer and does everything, including double sided printing which is a must for me to save on paper. A full set of 4 extra large cartridges has just cost me about £65.00, again from a reputable eBay supplier, and they will last absolutely ages.

    There may be an updated model now but for me it's the best all rounder available.

    Hope this helps.............Clive

      We have an Epson all in one which is about 4 or 5 years old now, always works, doesn't do double sided, but scans at 9600 dpi if you want it to and photocopies, it wll even fax I think. I expect the new ones make tea as well. I recently looked at a review of a lovely new Epson one on a blog site that does reviews and giveaways, hoped to win one! http://kidzborn2impress.blogspot.com...tisan-810.html It sounds amazing. Quite pricey this one.

        I checked it out Leyh and it looks pretty good. I had an Epson a few printers ago but the ink usage was double that of HP so I had to get rid of it. I am sure that in the intervening years Epson have addressed this issue though.

        The one problem with all these machines is that the advanced technology lies in the ink cartridge not in the printer so the print production costs can go through the roof if you don't source the most competitively priced cartridges.

        If I were starting out again with printers I think I would carry out a product comparison based on ink usage -v- print quality. I have never had the time but I'm sure it would pay dividends to do so.

          Hi,
          I use the Canon Pixma ip4600 and have been very pleased with it, its price is good and the ink is around £50 and i only buy original ink, not *compatible*, i can print on up to 400gsm card

          Hope this helps

            I've got an Epson Stylus Photo RX620. It's super, scans, copies, prints on card (one side only but I just turn the card over to print the other side, but the ink costs sooooooooo much we got tempted to buy a Kodak ESP7. It's noisy and prints pale (and annoyingly the wrong shade of some colours), it's happy with card and it prints both sides. The ink is miles cheaper.
            So instead of replacing the rather large Epson as planned I'm using the Kodak for my black and white printing and the Epson for the pretty, good quality stuff.
