I'm looking at either a Canon or an Epson. First one is CANON Pixma MP180 or EPSON Stylus CX4900 or maybe the EPSON Stylus CX3900. Anyone out there know about how good or bad these are please? I do print quite few photo's.

You mean with a scanner/ fax etc?

Dedicated machines to a dedicated job always offer better quality in my opinion. I've got a canon IP4200 and it's sweet, the 4300 is the new model and it's about $200 but just a printer, not multifunction.

Get an HP, you won't regret it. Something like a Photosmart with the vivera ink technology and card reader are really good. My photos turn out a treat:thumbs:

I have the canon mp450, not sure how it differs from the 180.

Prints photos very well on the proper paper.

I'll second the HP Photosmart for consideration :)

MP180 = 195 pages per printer cartridge.

CX4900 - 245 pages.

CX3900 - 245 pages

Find one that does at least 800.

Multifunction machines suck in my opinion.
Seperate Scanner and printer, some scanners come with software that copy and send copies to the printer. Fax machines are last century.
