    What type of printer/make do you have?
    Jessops is always a good place to start :)

    I use www.xlshop.com for most of my consumables. Prices are fairly good and the service has always been excellent.

    I have a 660 as well unfortunately :(
    It isn't the greatest of printers at the best of times and using the cheapo replacement cartridges I have been using the quality is significantly worse (that'll teach me to be a skinflint).
    When it was new though and the novelty had yet to wear off I used to get decent results using A4 glossy 190gms ;)
