Photo Printing

I need to upgrade my all-in-one inkjet printer (currently a Canon Pixma MX882) to one that produces higher quality prints.  I am not a professional, so I don't want to spend $1,000 on printer.  I've tried to read dozens of reviews on the best printer, but I can't find any consistency in the recommendations.  Is there a resource available that is dependable in providing accurate statistical and user-informed referrals to the best quality and value for a photo printer?

Thanks,

Phil

The Epson R2000 is popular with amateur photographers:

By way of personal bias, I have had an R2000 for a couple of years and get great results with it, up to 13" x 19" prints. I was never happy with my prior Canon printer which always gave me prints with a magenta cast. Epsons are definitely the printers of choice for people in our camera club.

If you are looking for the glossy photo prints you definitely will have to go to a inkjet printer. Which are extremely expensive to operating, due to the ink cartridges that do not last long. Epson has been known for its quality in printing photos. If you just want to print photos on regular paper I would recommend you going to a color laser printer, it will cost less per page to operate, compared to an inkjet printer. But then you can not print on glossy paper. When using a color laser printers you have to buy four different color toners, and these together can add up quickly almost as much as the cost of the printer.
