What made you decide to go for Epson?
I just bought a Canon 4200 (�72 inc at www.amazon.co.uk) and I'm really impressed. The resolution is great (seems to be much better than other printers of a similar price), it can print directly onto CDs and it has separate ink cartridges. The replacement ink is expensive but I'm hoping the photos won't fade if I use the proper ink.
The photos are as good as I get from a shop!
..The Epson cartridges are VERY expensive...the cost for the six being around �70 at my last check...HOWEVER I have now sourced the compatibles from �12 pounds the set to as little as �8 pounds and as far as I can see there is NO difference whatsoever in colour or print quality.......I might add I have been using compatibles in this and other Epson printers for about 7 years and the prints I made early on are still great.
The little bonus is the built in card reader and though mine cost �125mtwo years ago I have seen it at around �85 .......
....I wholy recommend this printer..............commoner.
Go for the Epson R220 (less than �60 if you shop around) takes the same compatible cartridges as my Epson R200. Great results and great value. (The R300 is similar but has slots for memory cards - which you might not need).
