I am after a printer with scanner which can scan books onto it. I will be mainly using it for the odd printing,not for photos. Obviously I don't want to pay heaps for ink or toner etc. What have you got that you like! Anything to consider! thanks heaps

my 2 cents.stay well away from brother.bloody awful, the ones i've used.I have an HP thats pretty good.its a 6500 wireless inkjet.obviously laser would be more economical in the long run, but if you're scanning more than printing this would be fine. get wireless - then your scanned docs will just pop up onto your pc desktop and the printer doesn't need to be near the pc (once you've set it all up right)

I have used a Canon Pixma 250 for a couple of years Cost under $50 used about same as you describe, but printed out photos too. No problems and not 1 paper jjam, as paper goes st through. Light to carry as I don't keep it connected.

Do you have to replace all the ink cartridges or one at a time!

The Canon has 2 ink cartridges, colour & B&W. about $40 each.
I would say ink may be a bit expensive.
