Borderless A3 Printer - please recommend


Staff member
I use a Canon iX6550. Pretty cheap and nothing fancy, but does the job.
Yes thanks for that I was actually looking at that printer.

Reading reviews these pros and cons come up -

Do you have any other opinions to add to that?


Comparatively quick photo print
Telescopic paper supports for small footprint
9,600dpi max resolution


No memory card slots or PictBridge
No LCD display
No wireless connection
It really depends on how important it is to you that you have a really high quality printer with LCD displays, SD card slots, etc. How critical is it?

I know you can get much better printers, but this one is pretty cheap (about £150) and actually does a really good job. An Epson R3000 is more like £550. That's £400 you have to make to pay for the difference. Or £400 you can't spend on some other equipment.

I'm always of the opinion that you don't normally need to spend as much as you initially think. If it was me I'd go for the Canon and take a couple of days off with the money I'd saved.

Slightly off topic but I had a mate who used to buy a new printer every time the ink ran out because it was £5 cheaper than buying more ink.
