Looking to replace my exsiting printer and an MFD would do quite nicely looking through the back issues of PCA it seems that this device was ranked number in there charts.

Was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this model.

Also my current model is a C64 photo which I have used compatabiles in but it now just leaves blobs of ink all over the page (the black) its a few years old and given that you can pick up a 4 pack of originals for not much more now do you think its better to stick with them?

I have a 6600 at work where I use it mainly as a colour copier, but is also has the very useful card reader so I have a bit more space, and prints very nicely ( I have only used plain paper ) .

of newer MFD's out and most of them have built in card-readers, pictbridge and even a preview screen.

You would be cheaper getting a different one with all these extra features and new to the market

The CX6600 does have a card reader built in im not to fussed about pictabridge. The reason why i was looking at the cx6600 is the scanner resolutions seem quite good for an MFD, Ive only got about a hundred max budget. I cant really see me doing a lot of printing straight from card anyway as I like to tweak my photos in photoshop first so a preview screen isnt a must either.

I understand what you were saying about a newer model but looking through old reviews this model seems to have quite good features and i dont mind not having the latest tech.

If theres any suggestions of another MFD thats worth a look

Any thoughts on the DX4800?

a Lexmark P4350 for £66. It has pictbridge,preview screen. If you want more though there is the above model P6350. I find it to be very good quality when printing documents and especially photos

Ive also come accross the RX425 which looks pretty good price of £70 epson inks are only £25 with a 100 sheets of photo paper. Good scanner resolutions, pictabridge as well no preview screen thou. Just looking through reviews now.

Thanks for the link jimmy14 will have a read now.

Im looking for an epson printer I just like epsons and they seem to be the most resonable on there inks.

Just doing a bit of housekeepin ended up getting the DX4850 which has pictabridge and a memory card slot as well as the DX4800, so far so good and the scanner gives good quality.

Am happy with the purchase
