Following an upgrade of my computer I decided to invest in a new printer as well. On advice from a colleague who acted as the computer services manager I narrowed my choice down to Canon or Epson. My first printer had been a Canon and had always been a bit temperamental and I had replaced with an Epson Color Sylus 440. This had worked well but used a lot of cartridges. I looked around PC World and picked the Canon S450, hoping that it would not proof to be as temperamental as my first printer. It was a dream to install, we just plugged in the USB connections followed the handbook and it was up and working within minutes. One of the things that appealed to me was the fact that it has separate cartridges for the component colours and this should help to reduce my costs. Also the USB port made a significant difference to the printing time. Work is printed off almost immediatly and very quietly as well. The system also includes an ink tank indicator so the days of running out of ink part way through a print run should have gone. Overall an excellent buy
