    Hi Marie
    I have an Epson stylus..and I love it ..you can always pick up cheap ink for it from Tes** or the copy ones works well..scan to your comp, copy's are better than the originals...
    Love

    I too am not computery but, after doing some research on a well-known jungle site, I bought an Epson XP405 from Sainzbriz (a very basic one but it does all of those things) and, much to my surprise, set it up unaided. My husband was staggered - I was quietly proud. DD

    Grrr!!!!! I have already answered this and it has disappeared. Thank you ladies for your replies, funnily enough it has been Epson printers I have been mostly looking at. It looks as if it is going to be an Epson xx

    HP Printer is about the best and most reliable. Cartridges are easy to buy and install. Easy to scan and save too.

    I know its a bit late but Ive got an Epson 315 recently and like all the others on here setting it up isn't hard to do on a Mac book pro, only issue I had was it didn't like the firewall but other than that it's a great bit of kit, only cost £40 and it even does photos!, I also have just switched over to self fill cartridges I got from e bay and they work a treat and cost peanuts compared with the pre filled ones which are a blatant con even with Epsom who are meant to be the cheapest on the market. I also took out an extra 3 years warranty in case it does go West like the flipping expensive HP photo print one we have upstairs, £100 of wasted money that was.

    Thanks Mell good of you to reply. I am getting one for nothing, I mentioned it to a friend of a friend who has a brand new one that she doesn't use and says I can have it, jammy or what. If it works ok I will obviously give her something for it , it is just the matter of picking it up. x

    Firewall has stopped our printer from working.
