  2. Hi Oscar,

    I use an Epson Stylus Photo R2400. It prints up to A3+ and there are some really good ink systems available for it. I manaaged to pick up my printer for a few hundred second hand on ebay, and the Lyson ink system from Lyson Inks and Media - MediaStreet Inks.

    The R2400 can produce some stunning photographic prints.

    budget, uses, come on a little more info would help here.

    Theres no point recommending a printer that goes for thousands when a printer worth couple of hundred would do you fine.

    Thanks to all.

    use: basically for printing proof to be send for professional off-set printing, more focused on image quality.

    Thanks again

    Konica Minolta do the best 'semi- pro' A4 colour laser. It's about £350, but complete with the inks, which are about £100. Some have offers on with free replacement inks. They last forever unless your printing full saturated colour week in week out.I had 3 of these when i first started out and the quality is as just as good as the big expensive Canon's I have now. It's a true laser printer not inkjet that is Mac compatible.
