Default New Printer

Can anybody find me a good printer from Aria PC - Computer Hardware, Components, Monitors.. at lowest prices or Cheap Laptop Deals, Monitors, Hard Drives and LCD TVs | Ebuyer.com

Needs to be a multifunction Scan,print etc.

I've got no idea about printers, but For less than 50 is possible and one that won't cost a fortune in ink , Cheers guys.

I would go with a HP printer. If you want a printer that doesn't use a lot of ink you'll need to pay more for the printer. They don't make much money on a low-priced printer so they make up for it with the price of a replacement ink cartridge.

That price is perfectly reasonable, which of those two are the best?

Can you also check out my thread Custom Home PC


Thanks mate.

I trust HP. Always have.

For ink saving, I would suggest Kodak. They have the best ink longetivity.

Hi,

I'd strongly recommend getting an Epson all in one inkjet printer. Their 'Stylus' range start from around 45:

Epson Stylus SX415 All-in-One Printer (Individual Inks, 6.3cm LCD Viewer, Memory Card Slots): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories
Printers - All In One Inkjet Printers | Ebuyer.com

Reason? Because Epson printers have an abundance of low cost third party refillable ink cartridges, continuous ink systems (CISS) and refillable inks available to consumers on the market.

The most economical solution would be to purchase a printer which have available third party, reusable-refillable ink cartridges (such as an Epson stylus printer). We've been using three Epson Stylus printers at home with third party refillable ink systems (one Stylus R220 fitted with a continuous ink system, and a Stylus DX4000 and DX5050 fitted with reusable-refillable ink cartridges). They've saved us, and continue to save us, a loads in printing costs!

Here's a real world example: for the Epson Stylus SX415 printer going for 48.97 on Amazon (UK), a set of 4 empty reusable-refillable ink cartridges for this printer (which automatically reset) would cost you an initial 10 from eBay. Thereafter, you'd just have to purchase ink refill bottles to refill the cartridges, which would cost you only around 5 to 9 for a complete set of refills (4 x 100ml bottles of each of the 4 colours - black, cyan, magenta and yellow). A 100ml bottle of ink is equivalent to 13 original black cartridges, and 18 original colour cartridges! (see ink capacities in the next paragraph...)


Reusable-refillable ink cartridges which automatically reset.

To put these costs into perspective, a set of original/genuine Epson ink cartridges (Multipack T0715) would cost around 25-30 for a set of 4, and you only get 7.7ml of ink in the black (T0711), and 5.5ml of ink in the cyan (T0712), magenta (T0713) and yellow (T0714) cartridges. Even a set of compatible third party single use cartridges which can contain between 11ml to 18ml of ink in each would cost more than a reusable-refillable ink cartridge solution or a continuous ink system solution with refills.
