Hi,

I'm planning for a new printer and below is the configuration and constraints :

Configuration
- Color printer that can print pictures on photocards
- Network printer that can be assigned an IP address
- Wireless capabilities i.e can be put anywhere and can print wirelessly
- All-in-one, printer-scanner-photocopier

Constraints
- Below Rs. 10000 (Indian Rupee)

- Can be put in small space

A warrantly of 3 or more years would be preferred.

Please pour in your expertise and help me. :)

I always loved HP printers. Also Kodak is quite good. But do not get the cheapest of the printers. "you get what you pay for"

I'm not familiar with any Indian sites, Care to name a few that you would buy from?

HP and Epson are all about ink sales rather than printers. Their low budget printers tend to fail after a year or so. I got my Kodak about a year ago and its a great printer plus the ink is quite cheap in comparison. My model is the 3250 AIO which includes a scanner as well.

Thanx a lot for your inputs

@Mindovermaster : I can buy from ebay.in, flipkart.com.

I did a little research and I found these options
- Lexmark Prospect Pro 205 -> $89 => Around Rs 4500
- HP Officejet Pro 8000 -> $189 => Around Rs 9500

Alternatively, I also found "HP Ink Advantage WL eAiO Prntr 3525" in exchange offer which would cost be around Rs 6500 i.e 1000 Rs cheaper than Rs 7500.

So an suggestions? How good is HP Ink Advantage WL eAiO Prntr 3525?

@Riva : Does your printer cum scanner include wireless?

If available to you take a look at the Canon line. Their ink carts are more reasonable if you get the right printer, some have the nozzles in the cart and some it is only an ink tank and the nozzles are seperate these ink carts are cheaper.
If you are looking for the printer to do both wired and wireless network at the same time they are rare so read the specs. carefully.

I've used only HP for several years now and have been very happy with them.

I've always been a lexmark man, but there ink was getting a little expensive so I went the epson route the last time... boy what a mistake! failed after 8 months.
I went back to Lexmark and their Pro 915 (can add another tray for the price I paid for the printer (may still get it lol)) and haven't looked back. your can replace the printhead (nozzles) if they clog and the cartridges are fairly inexpensive.

@DJDark : Yeah, I also liked Lexmark pro 205, but HP is offering an exchange offer.

@helpifcan : Its wireless only

@Growled : Yeah I also like HP. :)
