Depends on the intended uses for the printer, but HP is in last place for almost any criteria. Current HP drivers and software are pretty lousy, and the hardware is nothing more than average. Cost to operate is high as well.
For mainly photos and discs, low to moderate volume: Any of the Epson models.
For an everyday workhorse printer with features like dual paper feeds and auto-duplexing, plus discs and photos at moderate to high volume: Canon.
