I've only heard good things about epson. For now, my brother printer is great and I'd definitely buy another one if needed.

Well my Epson isn't one of the all singing, all dancing models, it's a relatively basic C42UX I've had it for four years & don't see the need to upgrade, it's not fast, but I have patience, the refills are cheap & last quite a long while, I find it pays to buy a good grade of paper which start at about £2,80 a ream, mine costs about $.4.20, for those who know paper it's 90g/m'3, whiteness 166cie.

Epsom I think are value for money, father inlaw just got a good deal on a new printer, £100 pounds off ANY NEW PRINTER if you trade in a old one, DOESNT EVEN HAVE TO WORK, how cool is that, I would have done the same thing but ive only just got one for the wife at christmas.

EDIT; Mine cost me £50 four years ago, now they're £72, not bad, considering inflation!

Can I chip in here?, I buy compatables, JET TEC, good quality at around two thirds the price of Epson originals, plus at a little local shop, if I buy two black & two colour he knocks more off, so the four cost me about £17.
