Default Canon IP4000 or Epson R300

sponsored links

 
Which of these printers should I buy? The Epson is the cheapest at 80 but requires 6 colours at 13.50 each. The Canon is 95 but it requires 4 colours at 9.50 each. I was wondering what peoples opinions are?

Cheers
Rob

both are very good printers, i have 2 epson r300 and i can get the inks at 5 89p for a set of all 6 colours from ***********.diskdepot.co.uk/, so its very cheap to run, but you can also get inks for the other printer cheap also, so i dont think you will be disappointed with either.

I'm a huge fan of the Canon PIXMA range.

They will print CD/DVD's, print on [i]both[/i] sides of the page, multi individual ink tanks, double paper trays, print heads built into ink cartridges (meaning you get a new ink head every time you change ink) and the ink is very well priced.

They are easily the best home ink-jet printer made to date.

Highly recommended!

your right they are excellent printers (i have the ip5000) although the print head is not actually built into the cartridge but is a completely seperate and easily changable unit. compatible cartridges are available from 1.50 each from [URL=***********.choicestationery.com]choicestationary and printing onto cdr/dvd-r gives absolutely stunning results, it is also easy to set up and is very quick, it blows away every epson printer i have ever owned.
