    Teacher wants printer for daughter

    I've been asked what printer I would recommend for home use. No idea about budget but she does appreciate that to spend more initially can save in the long run. I wondered about an all-in-one and wondered if anyone has any recommendations.

    I have the MP 630 and is been rock solid for me and quality is brilliant for the printer and ink lasts quite a while - have printed off tons of photos on photo quality paper and lasted about a month or so and ink carts are about £8 per ink cart I think. - could be wrong

    They have the 640 version out now which am sure would be suitable and the scanning is pretty darned good.

    I went for a epson DX7400 which has great quality and was cheap as chips, the ink cost is low also and you can get compats so she can save more pennies,
