Hi to all,
I run windows 8.1 64 bit and my present printer (Canon ip4200) is just about on it's last legs, it's producing thick black lines on the back of each page and now roller marks as well, Canon don't want to help and I am not the most technical person on the planet, so I have got to find a replacement and all recommendations and advice will be greatly appreciated.
My price range is anything up to £200.00, I'm not too bothered about printing photographs to a professional standard but one of the main criteria's is that it must have multi ink tanks so that they can be changed individually. I don't need a fax machine but I guess there are not many out there that don't have a built in scanner.
I do print documents, some need colour but mainly black and white. My main printing usage is for printing off shooting targets which I use at my local rifle range which do need to be fairly clear and well printed.
Having looked at so many printers over the past few days I think it's a case of brain overload as I now feel like spinning a coin and see where it lands, so hopefully someone will give me some educated choices based on their own printers.

Best regards to all
Graham

I ended up going with a Brother color laser printer. I got tired of dealing the all of the ink issues. It is network attached, so it is easy to share.

The link for the Brother printer above looks to be a newer version to what I have. I have no complaints about the printer.
