Hi,

I'm about to purchase a new printer mainly for printing photos taken with a digital camera. I will also print text documents and the occasional colour brochure.

I'm looking to spend around the £100 mark although I could pay a little more if necessary.

The Quality of the prints (in particular photos) is paramount; speed, running costs, size etc are secondary.

It's so hard to find independant advise on the net these days any advice at all would be much appreciated.

AT.

I have Epson Photo 870 , it's really great, and the cartriges are cheap, i found store that sells them for 10$ a piece, if you buy good quality photo paper, you will be really suprised what that printer can do, i have 3.2 MP camera and pictures 8x10 are just superb quality,

All the Epson printers are really good, I tested few of them
Stylus C64
Stylus C82
and 640 and they print with really good quality
just check in your area how much is the ink,
Take care
