    what printer would you recommended for photo printing and cd printing.....my r300 is packing in. i dont want to pay too much, i like epsons because of the cheap cartridges but i heard that canon printerrs are better for not bein used that often.

    what is everyones opinions on this, or what would people recommend?

    The Canon Pixma IP 3000 is the best printer I have ever bought.

    Cheap to run ( individual ink cartridges ) , quality prints , closes up when not in use ( keeps dust out ).

    Would recommend the Canon Pixma IP range.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    what kind of prices do the cartridges sell for?

    i did want the epson rx700 for its all in one with cd printing, but dont really want to pay nearly 300quid.

    so i was thinking abotu either a canon, (ip4200 or ip5200) or the epson r220 and get a continuous ink supply.

    Canon Pixma 4000. About £20 for a full set of new Canon ink, or about £10 for a full set of cheap ink. The Canon Pixma 4000 is fast, quiet and does good photo printing.

    Canon IP4000 or IP4200 (Its replacement) cartridges work at around £18 for all five (compatibles) - nice build quality and it prints CD/DVDs so long as they are the printable versions.

    Well recommended.

    I have had a Canon IP4200 for several weeks, and it has been excellent.

    I bought it mainly for CD/DVD printing - which does very well. Quick too - about 2 mins.

    It's also very good for text - close to my Samsung Laser printer.

    Highly recommended.
