Can anyone recommend a photo printer
Am looking at buying a printer specifically for printing photos out approx 30 a week. Can anybody recommend a stand alone printer that can be used with various memory cards and has reasonably priced ink.

At home i have got a Epson Stylus Photo R360, prints photos fantastically, and even goes flatbed for printing into CD/DVD's.
EPSON Claria Photo Enthusiast Inkjet Printers - Epson Stylus Photo R360 Key features
Card Slot, USB Slot, 3.5" LCD to view the photos, 6 Inks to get the light cyan and light magenta colours spot on.

I you get an epson.. look into fitting an external waste ink tank reasonably soonish and also take your time finding a decent ink before you start shoving any old rubbish in there.. It really does make a difference to the longevity of your prints and the amount of clogging you experience...
nifty-stuff forums is a good place for advice on the inks... waste ink tank info is on continuousink.info

So I guess you re just supposed to ignore the question and say what you want.?
Or, nobody can answer the question.
CAN YOU RECCOMEND A PHOTO PRINTER?

Now, let's try again shall we?
Did you want a more up to date answer on the question?

I use a Epson Stylus Photo R1800 very successfully to do photo printing. Ink is not cheap, but the 8 ink cartridges including clear does print good quality photo's.

I have a Canon MP610 and its great with cheap ink. PC Pro: Product Reviews: Canon Pixma MP610 its replaced by the MP630 now which is still top of the A-List.

No offence but the A-list is a pile of proverbial marketing gumpf that bears little if any resemblance to testing results or real world usage.

Having learned as much as I have about inkjets over the past 6 years my respect for PC-Pro has hit an all time low when they published (what I can only describe as shill marketing) a guide on the best printers about a month ago. They were anything but...
