I want a photo printer which is not too expensive and prints as near to photo store quality as possible, and can do borderless A4 prints, and preferably has a direct print from camera function and LCD screen. Just browsing some manufacturers' websites, it seems that photo printers aren't coming with LCD screens so much now?
I was considering the HP Photosmart 8050, which is currently very cheap on Amazon UK because it's just been discontinued by HP, but then I read some reviews saying that some lighter photos were grainy with visible dots - which is just the kind of thing I'd rather pay more to avoid. It seems to have some other good features like automatic paper type recognition, but all I really care about is the print quality. I also read a review saying that it has a tendancy to take in the paper wonkily and thus not get the borderless prints right - something else I definitely want to avoid (the usual inkjet nightmare of paper feeding)
I'd like to hear of anyone's experiences with similar photo printers, and if anyone has any recommendations or warnings against certain products. I've never had a photo printer before so I don't really know what's standard, what's good and bad etc., but I'm getting sick of paying high photo store prices for any prints larger than 4 x 6 (like A4 prints).
