My printer a Dell 946 all in one is the pre curser to the 964 dell photo all in one.
It does everything the 964 for does but the 964 senses which paper to use as well.
The 946 my printer is a good all round printer faxer and scanner it also photocopies all in colour to a high standard. the ink jet cartridges are reasonably priced from £16 plus vat to around £26 for the longer lasting cartridges. Black and colour. I cannot say how much the printer costs as it was a gift with a computer system also a dell. This printer has a memory stick and flash card photocard facility too and many other gizmo slots you just plug it in and away you go. My son recharges his Ipod on it it is very flexible. For a complete novice like myself it is simple to understand all you have to do is follow the screen instructions it does the rest. You need just a simple pack of a4 paper for generall printing or any size up to a4 photo paper for photos of course. The photos come out generally of good quality and look realistic. Like you would get from a top photo shop, and the printing quality is excellent. The only draw back is that it prints the last page first so if half way through printing you decide you dont want the last few pages I am afraid your pretty much stuck.
But generally a good buy thanks mum.
