    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.

    Thanks

    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?

    Yes, and I can spell too...

    Do yourself a favour, if you're a first time poster, don't come the big I am and start prodding the locals with a big stick... strangely enough, it often doesn't get the response you want.

    Now, let's try again shall we?

    Did you want a more up to date answer on the question?

    Please see above for a suggested text size for this comment. Also note the following points:

    1. you're posting in a thread that died 7 months ago;
    2. it's rude to shout
    3. I haven't seen you make a recommendation yet;
    4. you can't spell.

    HAND. Noob.

    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.

    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.

    The MP630 has a worse scanner, smaller/lower-capacity cartridges, a much higher cost per page (by almost double). No ability to use any third party consumables and frankly the only good news is the addition of a printserver internally. (Comparing to the MP610).

    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...
