I AM IN THE PROCESS OF BUYING A NEW PRINTER AND WANT TO KNOW WHICH BRAND IS BEST. SOME ARE CHEAP WITH EXPENSIVE INK,SOME HAVE
A BETTER WAY FOR INSTALLING INK ETC.  THE CANNON HAS 4 SEPERATE CARTRAGES AND YOU CAN CHANGE OUT 1 AT A TIME BUT I HEARD HP PRINTS BETTER ETC. CAN YOU BREAK THIS DOWN FOR ME. I WOULD SOONER PAY MORE FOR A GOOD PRINT JOB AND CHEAPER INK THEN TO BUY A CHEAP PRINTER WITH EXPENSIVE INK EVEN IF THE PRINT JOB IS AS GOOD.

                                                                  THANK YOU

i have had a Epson Stylus Pro
nothing can beat the epson when it comes to printing.

1  look for the higest quality  for example printing Resolution

i have just bought a lexmark z31 it is very good for the money spent

but the best to buy a laser if you can depends if you have to use black  

hope this helps

I just bought a new printer and my choice was the HP970, it was a little expensive but it does a great job, I own a Canon that has the separate ink tanks and it really didn't impress me at all, when it was new it was great but after about 6 months it went to junk, it still works but is a constant battle (I paid more for the Canon).
Here is link to the HP970:

I have own a HP712 and a HP612 over the last year or so and they still work very good, slower then what I need but for the money they are OK. I sold one and gave the other away with a computer I sold.

Cannon - don't use em, if you want one, I've got 3 broken ones under my bed

HPs - Personally, I recommend HPs, they print well, they're in the mid $150's, ink cartridges are reasonable - use if you print a lot

Epson - Good too, from what I gather though they're more expensive - use if u print a fair amount-

Lexmark - get em if you don't print much

you get what you pay for.  If you want a recommendation, get a HP Deskjet 700+ series...they're reliable
