Default Photo Printers

Well I'm thinking about getting a new printer soon. I have always had the ones that come free when you buy a computer or someone who was getting rid of their old one would give it to me instead of throwing it away lol So yeah, I would like a nice one but I have NO idea where to start. I was thinking of an HP but I thought I'd see what some of you recommend before going out and buying one. Anyone know of some nice printers? Maybe one with a scanner?

How much did you want to spend??? The absolute best in printers is the color laser printer - omg, I'd love to have one!

They've come waaaay down in price in only a few years. In 2000, our office bought some color laser printers that cost $10,000 each (nope, I didn't add too many zeros)! I've been watching the prices and in 2006 they finally got below $1000. Now I think you can get one for around $500 if you're a smart shopper.

Other than that, I think you can get a decent HP photo printer with scanner for under $200. More bells and whistle add to the price, of course.

One thing to note from experience. I have purchased several high end color phote printers over the years... thing is it ends up costing a pretty penny to print 'all' your photos but is great to print those that you want right away. Second, they wear out quite fast and are expensive to replace... I have had a high high end Espson that I loved, but it was huge, I used to craft a lot and wanted the 12" wide printer. Then I got this highly prized Canon and it was perfect, had great software for easy layouts too... but I didn't use it much and it still BROKE!!! I replaced it with a lesser priced Canon (cause I love the software!) and I'm happy. So a high end photo printer isn't always the best bet. Go for mid-range (like $200). I always wanted one of those dye-sub printers but the cost is not worth it in the end (materials cost more than to send your files to costco).

HP
Canon
Epson....
I don't think it matters besides your preference.
As the above poster said, a laser would be awesome! We have one at work and I love it, we have stopped sending out for our color business cards to be printed even!

I have the IP4300, it was pretty cheap but its working great. Its not the scanner one.. the scanner kind are pretty cool cause you can take a printed photo and make a quick copy. I had the S900 which was pretty pricey ($500=3+years ago).

As for the one's you've posted, I like the first one, the fact that its preset for printsharing is a plus, especially if you have multiple pc's in the house. To purchase print server (doing the same thing thats built into this) is upwards of $30.
