    Hello, I hope that you are all well. My printer recently died and I would like some help choosing a new one please as there seems to be a bewildering choice on the market. I think I should get a printer and scanner combined so I don't have to keep changing leads over from 1 to the other like I do now. I don't need to fax anything. I don't need a printer that has great photo quality printing as I usually only need it to print invoices and addresses rather than photos but I may need to print contact sheets. I used to have an A4+ printer so I could put an envelope to take an A4 sheet through it and print the address onto the envelope. Are A4+ printers still available? I'm not fussed about having a wifi connection and I would probably be happier using USB. Also, I don't really 1 that costs lots to replace inks. I've always had epson in the past and would like to stick with them, unless something else is just too tempting! Many thanks for any help and advice you can offer.

    Quote: and scanner combined

    Is that just a document scanner or one for scanning negatives / transparencies ?

    Sorry JJGEE I should have been more clearer. I have a negative scanner I can use when I need to so just a scanner for documents would be good. Thanks.

    I have the Canon MG550, very good, has wireless connection and only cost 49.

    To replace both cartridges costs 31 from Asda (Cannons own)

    Canon Pixma for fantastic colour prints. I have two and would not consider anything else. Smile

    Another vote for the MG550; mine cost 30.00 in Argos so look around for prices.

    The last inks I bought cost about 25.00 for a genuine Canon twin pack, also from Argos but again look around. You might beat that at Amazon.

    My first check is the size and price of ink cartridges and if it'll get heavy use, whether it can take a CISS.

    Over the life of a printer, ink is generally the biggest cost, even for a wide-format printer and even for an office printer with a CISS.
