Colour Printer Recommendations?

Budget about $175-200USD. General purpose, the occasional photograph...

I've had a few crap printers that ended up in the trash... want to make sure I get something decent.

Thanks in advance.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Colour Printer Recommendations?

Go with an Epson. To be honest though, most of the printers in that price range are going to be fine for general purpose use. Canon printers are good also but I prefer Epson stuff.

I used to work for them, and i can honestly say that they're one of the best out there.


right now futureshop has the r300 for $129.00 after rebate ( in ontario atleast). You'll be very happy with the result. I have the r200. basically the same thing without the display and memory card slots for direct printing from memory cards. ( i always print from the computer).

Re: Colour Printer Recommendations?

I'm heading to Future Shop today so I'll look out for those Epsons. I like the LCD displays... not because I need them but because I like gadgets.

And then there's this asshole...

I have this printer. Color print quality is great for digital pics. Scanning then printing is not as good. It has individual print color cartridges and two black ones. Supposedly it will print on two sides also. Large footprint though. I paid $200

Re: Colour Printer Recommendations?

I have an Epson R200 and R300. Very nice printing of photos with these. Use the print to DVD option alot. Works very well. I just picked up the R300 for $50 after rebates....couldn't pass that up even though I didn't "need" the printer. Costs more than that for a set of cartridges.
