    hiya. im looking for a printer. i will generally use it home. i have several criterias:

    1. ill be mostly using it for printing out offline Word/Open Office documents, CVs and the occasional photos on a glossy paper (from a digital camera's memory stick or from my PC) and online emails and docu's.

    2. must be compatible with most memory cards and memory sticks (like pro duo, sd, xd, etc.)

    3. not necessarily bluetooth but atleast an optional bluetooth adaptor

    4. cheap and easy to replace (and reuse/refill) ink cartridge

    5. can also scan at the same time

    now, would you recommend an "All-in-one" printer or a standard home printer? what make? pls help.

    Depends on how much you want to pay, or can afford, and to what quality and size you want to print your photos at. Once you have decided that then it's probably :rolleyes: how long is apiece of string?

    That price is too high. only £110.45 from eBuyer including free delivery.
    But how big are the cartridges and how much are they? Lexmark is known as being expensive for ink and cheap printers! :(

    im looking at a budget of up to £100 only. im not exactly looking for those "All-in-one" printers coz i heard those inkjet ones have higher dpi's. i need your top two makes on this one please. (and never mind the bluetooth thing. as long as it's picturebridge compatible and it's USB 2.0 so you can connect your digtal cam)
