Stylus Photo R300
Strengths: Excellent photos, don't have to by all colour inks at once, inks last quite a while, easy to use.
After using the Kodak easy share printer and Lexmark printer I decided to look for something that would give me the quality of prints I want and is reasonably priced. I couldn't have bought better and I am able to get my inks at very reasonable prices. I don't have to fork out £30-£40 a time. You can't go wrong buying this.

I looked at all major printer...
Strengths: Quality of photo prints. Easy set up. Cost of ink is pretty much in line with others. Seprate ink tanks. The card reader can be used with any photo programs( Adobe, ACdsee,Paint shop pro)
I looked at all major printer companies, they all looked pretty good, I narrowed it down between the Epson and Canon because of the seperate ink tanks, I chose Epson because the genuine Epson paper was much cheaper than the canon paper. I know that I could have bought an off brand paper but I have always heard that if you use the paper desined for your printer you will get better results. I can...

I know that I could have bought an off brand paper but I have always heard that if you use the paper desined for your printer you will get better results. I can buy a 100 pack of 4x6 high gloss Epson paper for right under 15.00, the others were at least twice that much.

I have been looking for a new...
Strengths: USB, color - 6 cartridges, quiet, not only a printer but also a card reader, don't need to turn on the computer to print pictures
Weakness: so far nothing, ink will always be on the expensive side when it comes to photo printers
I have been looking for a new printer since my ALPS 1300 (dry ink photo printer) was discontinued years ago. I am very picky when it comes to photo printers. Inkjets have gotten better and the quality has improved. When it comes to photographs and graphics, the quality is great just like getting it developed at the store.

I have been looking for a new printer since my ALPS 1300 (dry ink photo printer) was discontinued years ago. I am very picky when it comes to photo printers. Inkjets have gotten better and the quality has improved. When it comes to photographs and graphics, the quality is great just like getting it developed at the store. For the price, its definitely satisfactory. If you want something much better, then you have to pay more. I definitely can say that pictures that I print out for whatever reason, people say its amazing what a printer can do nowadays.
Separate ink cartridges may run you some $, but compared to combo cart., you eventually save money. Plus separate carts. are a plus for good quality printing besides the picoliter of ink used.
This is just my opinion. I recommend the R300 especially if you want an affordable printer that can do all these things. I paid $163 for it and got my money worth.

Excellent printer- prints perfect...
Strengths: CD Printing - many options for color printing.
Weakness: Size. Also need a few inches clearance in the rear of product.
Excellent printer- prints perfect (I mean perfect!) cd labels right on ink jet disks. Also great quality photo printing - many options to get the best possible prints.
