I have been shopping around to find a good quality photo printer at a reasonable price, and the Hp p1000 is superb for just £200. It prints great quality scanned pictures at 2400x1200 dpi (dots per inch), and it is very user friendly.
This inkjet printer comes with everything appart from the printer cable, but that can be bought almost anywhere for £10. The software which comes with it is very easy to use and install, and the printer comes with a paralel port lead, so it can be easily connected to your pc (and for those mac users, a USB lead can be picked up easily. The instructions for connecting the printer to your pc are very easy to follow, and doesnt take much time at all.
The printer is very fast when printing basic word documents (approx 8 sheets a min), and if you are printing on photo paper, it will take a bit longer but the quality is superb. The printer is also very quiet during any type of print.
For those of you with a digital camera, you have the option to plug your camera straight into the printer, and using the small simple display on the printer, you can select and print the picture, and the size you would like it without having to go through the computer.
The printer is your basic HP inkjet size and comes in a nice black colour which will easily fit all suroundings.
The ink cartriges are easy to replace and find, and best of all, they last a long time.
The only downfall is that a colour cartrige costs around £29, and good quality photo paper is around £11 for 20 A4 sheets
Overall, if you are looking for a very good quality printer, which is easy to use, and is digital camera compatable, this is the one.
