Can anyone suggest a printer around £100.00 for printing upto A4 pictures and also to be used for normal printing of documents etc. Also It might be nice to have the facility to print directly on to cd's that I have created.

I have looked at the Epson R300 and this looks quite a good allrounder.

Any suggestions/thoughts most appreciated.

Regards

hi uggitt
r300 is mainly a photo printer with a photo black, guess you would be better with a Cannon (right off Epson's now, see Woe of Epson).
Better with a Canon ipxxxx up to ip5000 cos it's an all rounder, it has two blacks, the large tank for text and small one for photos, one being a dye ink and the other a pigment.

You will find the inks are alot cheaper than the Epson's and last a lot longer, there are added bonuses being the print head is removable in the Canon and the tanks are NOT 'chipped'like Epson's. The ip6000 is mainly a colour printer and just has a photo black.

A Canon ip4000 is about £95 / ip5000 about £148
see Steves review and also photo-i
Cheers

Dave

Cheers Dave, just checked out the Canon Ip4000and I think the Epson has taken a back seat....

Going to order the Canon tomorrow.

Thanks again,

hi uggitt
hope you like it, if you went and had a toot at photo-i at the 5000 your looking at the 4000 in case and style and also ink tanks etc, also didn't mention it can also print both sides of a document. Let us all have a comment on how you find it.
Cheers
