Can anyone recommend a 'not expensive' printer that will produce very good photo prints? I currently have a fairly old Epson Stylus SX215 which gives OK but not brilliant photos. I'd prefer separate ink colour cartridges. Thanks in advance.

hp, Epson or canon

the problem at the lower end is cost of cartridges to keep any warranty you need use genuine cart's

I have always had HP printers, as they are the industry standard and have maintained printers up to 500K pages at work

Whats your budget ?

There are also a couple of other options to check when printing pictures.

You should have good quality paper, not your normal printer paper.
Change the print settings to "photograph"

Simple things to do but makes one heck of a difference.

Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?
