Am looking for an all-in-one printer for home use up to £50.00
No photo printing just occasional documents and scanning,
The Epson.Canon and HP all seem similar,
Any recommendations ?

I've had an HP 3050 for a while here. Fine for my needs, which are about the same as yours by the sound of it.
Even does a reasonable job of photos.
I'd assume the ones flash has linked to are the more modern version.

yes its the equivalent-ish, Hp printers are very reliable, I not long serviced a Deskjet 510 - it just needed a clean but that must be getting on for 17 years old (maybe 20+)

That one of mine is quite old. Bought from Tesco for £30 -ish as a quick temporary fix for a faulty printer. :-) Must be getting on for ten years old!
The "photocopy" thing is handy occasionally.

I looked at the first one flash22 linked to and the inks supplied will cost about £27 on the HP store, so you are getting a printer for less than a tenner. :thumbleft:

I am ordering new inks for my older HP all in one at the moment and original twin colour and black inks are about £44 admittedly they have more ink in them, so I am trying copy ones for a lot less money and hoping they are OK or I will get one of those printers myself.

I have done that, both times wished I hadn't.
Don't know exactly why but both printers failed after using "copy cat" ink. They didn't fail strait away, and yes it was some years ago, perhaps they are better now, but I will always buy genuine ink for the printer now.

Just be aware that my HP all-in-one won't scan over wi-fi, I have to be connected via usb for that to work.

Not sure if the newer ones will.

My Epson has lasted about 8 years now. Cost of ink is really the only thing that bothers me, I want the printer that has the cheapest refills, the epson cartridges (uses 4) can be had on ebay for about £1 each.

My 'oldish' Officejet Pro 8600 will scan over WiFi.

That said, I now always connect straight in to the router.

If you don't want to print anything in colour then go for a laser printer. Firstly most printers are ink based, if you don't use them regularly then the ink drys in the "Jet" it can be sorted out but its a pain in the arse, it may be that only one colour is blocked but some printers will go into a default lockdown mode, you have to replace all three, it wont let you just print in one colour. Also as others have said ink replacement is not cheap and using none original, or refilling can and often bring there own problems.
