BogMonster Posted June 18, 2006 Share Posted June 18, 2006 I need a new printer. I currently have (had) an Epson Stylus Photo 810, which is great when it works which is not very often. It produces (produced) great results but if you leave it for more than a few days without using it, the sodding printheads block up and need about 10 cleaning cycles run to get the nozzles clean again, which uses a huge amount of ink. Once it is clean it will print fine but it is impossible to keep it working for any length of time. The cartridges are well in date and you can't replace the printheads. The final straw was today. I bought a new colour cartridge a couple of weeks ago and after 10 or so cleaning cycles to get it working to do something then, and then another 10 or so just now to try and print another photo, it is now 3/4 used up (at £20 something a pop) and £10 per A4 photo is stupidly expensive (and it still isn't working properly on all 6 colours). Consequently I have just cleaned it permanently with my fist and a new printer is now required. Any recommendations? I won't touch another Epson with a barge pole as I gather they are all prone to do this after a while, and I don't do much photo printing but when I do I want decent quality. Are there any whizzy new technologies that should be investigated or is inkjet still the only one at a sensible price? Not looking to spend a huge amount of money anything up to £200 would be ok.
