Yes, escaped yet again! Cost me 162 of your English pounds (and change) Very reasonable I thought.
I use an on-line service BECAUSE of the issues with home printing. It shouldn't be listed as a problem with home printing.
I only print photos once or twice a year, so print heads tended to block up.
This hasn't changed since before the poll started back in 2017!
Blocking ink tanks - grrr.
Then printer fussiness over compatible cartridges.
Sadly, like the Lib Dems, this topic has faded into obscurity, now......what else can I moan about? Ah yes, "Kids today!"
you're early, has Black Friday stirred you into action
Cost of ink.
Has anyone tried Epsoms tank printers. They only use four or five inks.
And when is a staffer going to take on this chat room?
Epson make them and I have one, it works well and cheaply, I am happy with it but I also have an A3 printer.
It's dead Jim.
How is it for photo print quality on postcard and A4? I need to replace my printer but have no need for larger formats or photolab quality as I get those done on fancy paper by a photolab, but for family use it'd be good to be able to print economically to a decent standard.
Nah, it's just pining for the fjords.
I have a large quantity of Epson 5x7 paper and it produces excellent prints at that size. I haven't tried anything larger.
Thanks Geoff, that's really helpful. We tend to mostly print 6x4 or occasionally 5x7 so it sounds like we'd be satisfied.
too much hassle...
If I am honest, having an expensive printer (Epson R800) with blocked heads.
Fortunately it is possible with Isopropyl alcohol, ammonia and distilled water to make a cleaning solution; I actually bought some ready made because I really don't want ammonia in the house.
One colour took two days to clear but it seems to have worked and I can get a near perfect test page. Total expenditure £26 for cleaning kit and a set of compatible inks. Don't vive up on that clogged printer without at least having a go at cleaning it.
