Re: I want a cheap low volume printer
Definitely go for a colour laser.
I've got one (after getting annoyed with chucking out half used inkjet cartridges.)
It lasts for AGES. OK, so the photo printing is not quite as good, but I just get any photos that I want to display printed online by Snapfish (other online photo printing services are available).
Inkjet is a complete con, I pretty much ended up buying a new cartridge every time I wanted to print something.
