You have forgotten brand X, you dolt! I will correct your woeful ignorance in a comment.

I suggest that you buy your printer from:



I am also interested in views on the relative merits of straightforward inkjets, straightforward laser printers and 'all-in-ones' which copy and scan as well as printing. Do comment if you have thoughts on any of them!

More babbling: Might we worth having a wander through PC Plus's Peripheral Reviews to see if there's any useful information in there. I've not read the mag for ages but they used to be pretty good...

Thanks for the advice, but kind of too late - I've just finished installing my sexy new HP Photosmart 2575 All-in-One! (I wasn't joking when I said I needed one urgently!) It's ace, though, and pretty much fits with your advice - it does have a separate black cartridge, and I think the risk of the extra bits going wrong is worth how much use I'll get out of them - especially the copier.

I got five years out of my last printer, and that was a crummy old Epson, so I'm reasonably hopeful about getting a decent amount of service out of this one.
