    Looking to buy a printer... But I've never owned one, so I have idea what to look for...

    As I don't use them much (though obviously I might) I think cartridge costs are less important than printer costs, but could be wrong due to the longevity of the printer...

    Any tips for when I'm buying one? Any tips for what kind and what makes? Bleh, feel like I rely on you guys too much haha...

    Also any opinions on all-in-ones with scanner etc.

    *goes googling for answers there aswell*

    Cheers folks

    Cheers, I "Think" I'd only be after an A4 printer anyway :)
  4. I used to have one of those print / scan / copy HP jobs :) worked well for me :) printed to the edge too :) the inks weren't bad price either :) I think it was a combo cartridge at £10 a time :)

    That sounds pretty good chris,,, especially with cheap cartridges...

    Hmm well I have £100 I could spend on it, but obviously if a £50 one would suffice, less is better...

    I have canon printers, an ip5200 (a4), an ix4000 (a3) and an old school bjc5500(a2). The ip5200 and ix4000 use the same ink cartridges and as such reduces costs :)

    thats the only dowmside of the hp, heads are in the cartridges so they are fairly expensive. and it means the non hp ones not only have rubbish ink, but rubbish heads to boot!
