    I am about to change my Epson 460 printer. As I have previously posted the price of some of the printer inks is crazy, so I have narrowed my search to the Canon 330 photo printer. Any comments on this printer? And any suggestions of the cheapest place to but it in the UK

    Well I've never liked Cannon printers. At least none of the BubbleJets. I hope they've improved...

    I have had bad experiences with both. The Canon bubblejet, as Zedric said, was horrible. I bought an Epson once, but I didn't like the fact that it ran through ink like no tomorrow. Now, I have a Lexmark Z55e, which works great. It's cheap, prints out at 4800 dpi (which is superb on photos), and works pretty good.

    Thanks Guys. I am sure that the Lexmark is a fine printer Reg, but with some of their models, the inks cost more than the printer.
    As I posted before the Z25 can be bought for £25 but a black and colour ink cost a total of £50.
