    Hi,

    A uk computer magazine currently recommends the Cannon Pixma TS6150 as its best buy and the HP office jet pro 6960 as a second choice.

    If you do lots of mono printing , you could also consider a laser printer, have had a Kyocera for several years, it just keeps working ! with a toner refill every other year or so.
    Mine is the FS1100, now replaced with this latest model.
    Kyocera FS-1061DN A4 Mono Laser Printer

      A friend of mine has a laser colour printer which he uses quite a lot. He says that the only trouble with it is the cost of the toner refill. The last time he looked for a toner he found it was cheaper to buy a new printer with a toner already in it. :doh:

        I was going to say that colour laser printers have a hefty price tag . After a quick google , I can't believe how cheap they are - Lexmarks starting at £150. As @shiney stated the toner refills may be expensive. Also not sure how good at photo printing they are for Woo. He has quite a few drone airport pics to print :snorky:

          Colour laser printers are not great for photos. Its probably due to the paper more than anything.

          We had a Lexmark colour laser a few years ago and bought toner refils rather than replacing the whole toner cartridge. You can get away with this once or twice but the cartridge will leak as the components wear.
