I like HP. I have one of those multifunction machines (scanner, fax, etc.) Has always worked perfectly.

I usually lean towards Epson. Stylus C82 currently. It has taken a hammering, what with wedding stuff, and then Wadfest stuff.

You really don't need a good b&w laser instead?

It's a thought. The colour stuff just doesn't come out right though.

I have an Epson Stylus Photo 830 which is great for all type of printing. The high quality printing produces photoquality images that are difficult to tell apart from the shop created photos.

I tend to get most of my printing done at school as I have access to A4 and A3 colour laser printing that way. At home I opted for a HP750C (printer / scanner / photocopier) which seems to give pretty good quality prints. Would prefer a higher resolution scanner on it though.

I'm not greatly familiar with Epson. How about the Stylus Photo RX420?

Well, I just spoke to my bro who uses an RX620, and reckons they are the dogs danglies. But it's double the price of an RX420, so I think I'll go for that.

I have an Epson <Something> in the office which can print directly onto CD's (which is why we got it) but I have to admit I don't generally like printers which hold their paperstock vertically - I've had bad experiences of bits of junk (paper clips, elastic bands and, on one spectacular occasion, ceiling plaster) falling down into the feed and jamming things. At home I use an HP990cxi to print colour (flat paper feed) and a Canon USB flatbed scanner (tiny little thing, needs no PSU so it's easy to carry around the house to the kids'/wife's computers.

But I'm seriously considering one of the network-ready all-in-ones when either the printer or scanner die.

The item has sold.

If the buyer wishes to brag, they can.
