    What are you looking for? Color? B&W? Speed? Quality? Features?

    Epson Stylus Photo R240 is brilliant. I read a review about it in a PC Pro special about printers (and the cost of running them) and this printer came out best value.

    PC Pro state "The Epson R240 is the best printer you can buy for under £100".

    Its pretty cheap to run too as each ink only costs £5.51 and since only 4 cartridges are required the cost of replacing all the tanks is just £22.09.

    I can't comment on the Epson Stylus Photo R240, but I have the Canon Pixma ip4000, and I love it. Its fast, quiet, does good photo printing and is economical. Ive just replaced a full set of ink for £17. If you went wih really cheap ink, you could get a full set of ink for under £10. The printer costs about £65, which is a bargain IMO.
