Thanks for the input.

By "cheap" you mean the Artisan style which are about $300 retail (but often sold for less) and not the $100 disposable printers with just two cartridges.

I'll have to take a harder look at the Epson 2000, 2880 or 3000. The first two both are listed as $499 Direct from Epson, the 3000 is $649. I did see them on for half price a London Drugs in the summer, wish I had bought one then, but sales come and go and I'm not in a hurry.

Maybe I'll pick one up on a big boxing day sale. I'll have to see who carries them.
