[QUOTE=Inigo_Montoya;2146660]thanks for the info
does anybody have any recommendations of specific printer models ?
As an alternative to buying a new printer I could try a continuous ink system i.e.
Quite expensive at Â£50 (90 dollars) coonsidering I only paid Â£15 for my printer
Does anybody have any opinion / advice as to whether I should buy a new printer or opt for the CISS ?[/QUOTE]
New printer will save you money in the long run, over using what you have. If you want to stay with a multi-function, the MP600, MP610 and MP620 are the best value-vs-features models. If you want just a printer, the IP4000, IP4300, IP4500 or IP4600 are all pretty much the same machine. Compatible tanks are available for all except the IP4600 and MP620. The IP3000, IP3500 and IP3600 are a lesser quality printer, but still quite acceptable for many folks.
Any of the above choices will cut your ink costs in half.
