New Wireless Printer Needed


Input Overload

Likes # 0

After dreadful noises came from my Canon printer last night I saw the keyboard cable had been dragged into the rear paper tray & the printer is now suitable only for ornamental purposes due to the profusion of disintegrated cogs etc.

I like Canon printers but I need a wireless preferably with a scanner that can use compatible cartridges or reasonably priced OEM's. My broken Canon used separate cartridges for each colour which I found useful.

However I'm willing to look at anything although I do a fair bit of printing & some photographs so keeping costs down is important & I would prefer for this use an inkjet. It’s a while since I bought a printer so I’m a bit out of my depth at the moment.

Anyone found & or uses a printer with the above they like?

Thanks.

Bit late now, but if you wanted to stick with Canon, then Staples http://www.staples.co.uk have the Canon Pixma MX410 4 in 1 wireless (print/scan/copy/fax) for £39.99 (saving £80.00?) delivered next day free. Online/store (same price) reference 412677.

As already been suggested, HP support is getting rather bad.

You could try the following newish printers from Hewlett Packard:

HP Officejet 6000 WIFI HP Officejet 6500 Wifi

An advantage is that Jettec have brought out fairly cheap cartridges for them, which is often the most important factor when buying a new printer. My daughter-in-law uses the HP Officejet 6500 Wifi in her office to share and rates it.

Regards,

James.

Sorry I suggested a Kodak after the recent news!

Epson_Kid - the OP bought a Kodak. One thing to be wary of with the HP's is their autoduplex facility. Too many people of complained of reduced size documents when using duplex.

@onthelimit1: I would buy the Kodak printer again: I like it & at the end of the day it's an £89 printer not a house or car & I now have sufficient genuine waterproof ink to last for some time.

I hope the printer division keeps going as it would I think in time it will bring down the cost of ink from other printer manufacturers.

I notice last night on Gold channel they were advertising Kodak printers so Kodak (UK)? seem to want to keep the ball rolling.

Good be pre-paid adverts? Kodak will continue in one form or another, no doubt. It has a valued name and reputation.
