Inkjet Printer for aircraft photos

Postby Bob DeBilda » Sun Nov 12, 2017 2:22 pm

Hi,
It appears HP have ceased making ink cartridges for my faithful old HP Photojet printer can anyone recommend a good replacement for under £100 please?
Many thanks
Bob

Printer choice now mainy depends on if you can purchase cheap (eBay) ink for the selected model. If you can't, pick another.
Otherwise, paying more does not always mean better, plenty for less than £50.
I, and many, many others have no probems with the eBay inks.

Maybe not to everyone's taste but my partner takes her holiday etc photos to Jessops to print and I must admit I am really impressed with the quality and vfm.

I gave up using inkjet printers - I found the consumables expensive and the ink cartridge would dry or become blocked if not used frequently.

Black Friday starts with some outlets on Friday, a week early, so bear that in mind.

Canon have a cashback this winter.

Buy one with single colour cartridges if you can. Good hunting.

A single cartridge for each colour is most important, as C24 points out. Those others with one cartridge with all colours simply means if one colour runs out, replace them all. A complete waste of money.
Don't forget printer choice is mainly governed by availability of cut price ink.
