We had one at work. It was very good for colour printing of documents but I thought is was not really up to high quality photo printing.

If you wanted to do a lot of "Publication" work brochures etc it would be fine.

Hi Grumpy,

Not sure of your budget or requirements (A4/A3 printers). I have used the HP Photosmart PRO for nearly a year now. Its a A3+, 8 ink Printer. Built like a tank (i.e. Metal not plastic) and very reliable with no ink blockages at all. I bought the gp option which comes with a monitor calibration kit.

Thanks Peter, I am prepered to spend up to £400 I am only trying to find out info we won't be buying till early next year. It sounds like the dry ink would not be any good as I want to print high quality photo prints *chr

I have the B9180 but the B8800 is cheaper and uses the same print technology, I understand. My comment about inks not drying out is not made lightly. No cleaning cycles, the printer does all that in a closed loop. Magic. Read some reviews too. Thats how I settled on this one.

I was printing an A3+ on my B9180 when it stopped halfway through and told me to replace a cartridge, which I did, then it carried on printing. A perfectly printed A3+ was produced. A brill machine in my book.
