Default New Printer :)

Alright Guys....

Looking for a new printer, a nice looking 3-in-1, networked and compettitive in ink prices.

(I assume it will be an inkjet, the lasers are just too big for home use...)

I'v been looking at the Canon PIXMA range, anyone got one, recommendations?

Cheers,

~ Tkey

I think the new Kodak printers are nice. Mainly cause of the cost of the ink.

Thanks, looks good.
What's paper feed like, does it load from the font bay or is it a rear feed?
Also what's the "5 single inks" going to do to my wallet?

Thanks!

I have a Canon Pixma, the 5 seperate inks are annoying yes, but they last a long time...

Good printers though

the paper loads in from the front. basically the whole front is hinged at the bottom and swings down revaling a tray type thing, that's where you put the paper. and the seprate inks do last a while. print quality is pretty darn good. we just made a copy of my birth certificate and it looks like the real thing.

Okay, thanks
I was concerned about the front loading paper tray as I have recently taken back a Lexmark that had rear paper feed, the damm thing was constantly jamming and was a simply awful piece of c**p.

Cheers.
