I'm Looking For A Standard Printer to print Letters, nothing fancy.

Thanks to all that reply.

Buy one with the print head in the ink cartridge so that each time you buy new ink you get a new print head. The printer will last for ever, the print heads do not. If the print head is part of the printer instead, when it goes wrong you need a new printer

As printer models change every 6 months or so you can often find the 6 month old model at half price at places like PCWorld or by mail order

Buy a Hewlett Packard for about £50/£60. You'll get good results. Don't buy very cheap printers from other manufacturers (often offered "free" with some cheap systems. They don't give good results

A laser printer may suit your needs better.... the toner carts last longer and the text is sharper.... it depends on what you want to spend...

I myself have both laser and inkjet.... I use the laser for letters and basic stuff (internet receipts etc) and the inkjet for photo or colour stuff.....

Cheap inkjet printers can be very expensive to run. the Samsung monochrome laser printer is cheap to run,and can be picked up for under £60

Would have to go with the others who are mentioning a laser, if all you want to print are letters and therefore it only has to print black then the laser is your best option. Have a look here click here

In cetain W H Smiths at the moment (I think - don't quote me) they are offering a HP PSC 1215 all in one printer, fax machine and scanner for £69.99.

In addition to this - the box includes a usb cable, photo-paper and ink cartridges. These ones are the ones that give you a new printhead each time, trust me - new printheads for a decent machine are more than a new printer!

Also, if the HP is not still on offer in W H Smith, it may be worth looking at a printer and finding out how much replacement cartridges are and how long they last. Most cartridges now come in two varieties - standard and heavy user. Depending upon how often you need to print, standard is OK for most people.
