I seem to go through printers like they are going out of fashion. I have had bothycheap and expensive but something always goes on them and it is usually cheaper to buy another rather than a repair in most cases!.

At the minute I have the epsom stylus dx3850. I have already had a repair on it, and now it has gone again. :cry:
When the paper goes through the rollers are just wizzing round.

I am going to buy another.
What printers do you rate?? Any opinions greatly appreciated
Thanks x

I've only ever had HP (Hewlett Packard) printers and have always found them to be reliable ... they are however a little more expensive than other printers.

I've just bought the Epson DX6050 from PC World for £59.99 which seems great so far, good quality print outs, no problems as yet.

canon's are good i have a pixma IP3000 and printed loads of flyers out of it, what i tend to do when wanting to buy something is read reviews on it and see what sort of rating people give that product, amazon is a great place for that... then places like curry's, ciao and reviewcentre to get an idea when you have read a review go to a shop like pc world and check it out for real, do you like the buttons, the shape the colour etc, then buy it online its always cheaper... good luck!

i have a dell 942 all in one, copier/scanner/printer/fax etc, its been great, i think its badged by one of the big companies , but i can now buy cheap refills for it from tesco, i have been printing photos (for scrapbooking and flyers, letters, agendas minutes etc for the PTA on it for 3 years with no probs, only think i sometimes struggle with is actual photo quality but i think thats the pic not the printer, i have recently printed over 2000 flyers with one colour cartridge and its still going now

I've not had a HP printer but I had a crap HP laptop.... their customer service is abysmal.... you phone for it to be re-routed to India/Pakistan or similar and then you cannot understand them...they don't understand you... nightmare!!!

Put me off buying a HP printer... my mums is HP and it always breaks down too...

Could be me and my vibes...electrical stuff hates me...

( but touch wood...Epson is working out fine )

I second this, i have a HPc300 series, its fantastic, cartridges are cheap to replace (i buy mine direct from them). They are not always expensive to but though if you can find a deal.....i got mine in argos 1/2 price for £40.
