Default Help finding a cheap/quality photo inkjet

Well, I finally busted my Epson 777... snapped the feeder :lol:

Then, on the other, the black ink nozzle is clogged beyond repair (unless anyone knows how to possibly clean it out)...

I would like a photo printer, but I can't spend too much on it. Maybe $120-130 tops. Also, preferably one where the ink cartridges last a good amount of time, and I can still print nice B/W text quickly... I don't care if it takes two minutes for an 8 1/2 x 11" photo to be printed...

Anyhoo, does anyone have any suggestions? Also, what's the difference in quality between 5760x780 and 4800x1200 dpi?



PS- Should I get a printer with paper roll capabilities? It doesn't look like they flatten out well (or do they?)... the paper's cheap that way.

Have a look at the canon i850. Very fast text printer. Does a great job on photos too. I love it. For the price its hard to beat.

Check out CompUSA!

They have a deal this week on an Epson 820s, bordeless 6-color printing for only $79... the kicker is they bundled with this already low-priced printer with a free 2Mpixels Concord QEye-2000 (with built-in flash and rear LCD)! 8)
