Epson Stylus SX425W
Advantages: Looks good, great functionality with the wifi and excellent value for money with good quality output
Disadvantages: Paper feed can sometimes be a bit temperamental, normally just a case of reloading the paper.
I bought this to replace a cheap Canon printer for which the trade-off was expensive ink cartridges, like the razor/blade trick. Having said that the cartridges aren't that cheap for the Epson but there are plenty of suppliers of compatibles out there these days.
I know it's subjective, but I find it a good-looking product and it seems pretty solidly built. The only slightly flimsy part is the extending paper-catcher at the front but I'm fairly heavy-handed and haven't had a problem yet.
Installation was a breeze, I used the software disc supplied, which also gave the Epson Scan software, which although I feel is a bit "clunky" nevertheless does a decent job.
The wireless functionality is great, I've never had a connectivity problem accessing it, I have Windows Vista on my desktop and laptop. I even cloud-print to it from my android phone!
Print quality is decent, I've used it to produce everything from quick drafts to high-quality photo prints and always had satisfactory results. It uses 3 separate ink cartridges for colours - Magenta Yellow and Blue, plus a black. And if the black runs our, you can produce a "composite" black using the coloured cartridges.
All in all, a decent printer that, touch wood, hasn't given me a problem in all the time I've used it. I would recommend it.
Summary: A pretty decent printer, I'd recommend it.
