Thank you for all your replies (sorry for going awol!) I think the majority of our printing would be photos and colour pictures for the dc

I bought this monster few weeks ago:

it promises up to 1200 black and white prints per ink cartridge &can print on A3

my son is into Art and loves the idea of being able to print big posters for various events for his school smile

so far the only issue's been my inability to work out the area of copy&print page size smile
but is a touchscreen menu, intuitive but is big - so if space is an issue - perhaps not the best idea

If you only print mostly black and white a laser is great the cost a little more but the toner lasts ages and cannot dry out like an inkjet we have a brother one and I would not go back.
The only colour printing I do is photos and then I use a photo printing company as it works out cheaper and better wi quality

You can get cheaper ink in places like Asda, (their own make) , you just have to know the make of printer. We have a Kodak one atm.

I have an Epson P50. The print is excellent quality, even with very cheap compatible ink cartridges which I buy from Amazon.

I would think it's worth thinking what kind of printing you do most?
is it mainly b&w or always colour?
and how many pages per say week - is it for general use or for your kids for school projects too?

We are looking to buy a new printer, possibly an all in one, scanner, printer and copier, but mainly want it to be able to print documents and photos?
There seem to be sooooo many out there, can anyone recommend a reliable one which most importantly the replacement ink cartridges do not cost more than the printer itself!
