    I have always favoured Epson printers. You can get the C84 for about £60 I think or maybe the next few models up to reach your £80 limit.

    Very cheap cartridges, but Epson's do have a problem with the cartridges if they are not used often.

    Epson R300 at Currys at £80 delivered I believe (think you need a discount voucher - DCBYAW)

    Hi
    I currently have a Canon i355 bubble jet printer, if you are not to bothered about noise a print speed try one of these or the next models up, it cost me £50 (cheaper on the net) and you can get the cartridges for about £ 1.50 black and £ 2.00 colour.
    Try www.britink.com for special deals.

    I got a good deal on an Epson C86 Photo edition this weekend from Staples.
    They offer a 150% price match! Currys have the C86 (non photo edition) for £70, Staples sell the photo edition for £90. The gave me the price match, so I got the photo edition for £60. (cheaper than anywhere on the net)

    Photo edition is exactly the same as the normal except they through in a USB 6 in 1 card reader.
