Which printer to buy?

ladeda, Oct 30, 5:21am
There's so many cheap printers out there, so which one? Occasional A4 printouts, scan, copy with cheap ink cartridges...

My old hp psc 1210 was a goody but it's printing grey (not black) despite a new cartridge and now the colour one has run out so it seems cheaper to buy a new printer.

Go grab a Canon Pixma around $60 to $110 depending on the model. I got the Mp490 but there is a cheaper model

That's cheap!!! How expensive are the cartridges??

Answered my own question - $33 and $42 from Dick Smith.

I haven't had to replace mine yet they seem to last quite a while.But depending on where you shop, between $25 and $35 for black and around $35 for the 3 color cartridge.Though you can get them refilled cheaper at cartridge world.

NEVER buy new carts refill your own it's ridiculously cheap if you do it yourself........buy bulk ink from CISS ..............cheap.........ea-

DSE out of stock of the printers. Was $58.

I'm not sure if CISS have the ink tank available for the Pixma printers yet.Last time I checked which was several months back they still did not support them, but that may have changed by now.

JB-HiFi have then in stock for $64 according to Price spy.

I don't think we have that store on the Mainland.

Found Canon MP272 at Warehouse Stationery for $79 so that looks to be the one. I need the printer today to print out some song sheets..

Thanks for your help.

dunno but the ink i'm using in my brother printer was given to me by someone who'd originally bought it for their epson printer ciss unit and given up trying to get the bloody system working.........it works fine in my printer......
