I've finally got my act together and bought a new printer. This one has the ecotanks of ink, filled from bottles, rather than the small expensive ink cartridges and is a much cheaper system to run. I've used bulk ink tanks on my previous printers, but as add-on systems, whereas this one has the bulk tanks integral to the printer. It's only 4 colour printing rather than the 6 colour printing I'm used to but, with improvements in the quality of the inks and the actual printing capabilities, I'm hoping that the difference won't be too obvious. It was a black-tag purchase in Currys, reduced by £100, and is also a scanner and copier. I'm treating it as an early Christmas present to myself!
Changing the subject, I've added word verification to comments as I'm getting lots of spam comments. I can't see what form the word verification takes so if it is a problem, please will you let me know. I'm hoping it is the sort where you just have to check a box to say you are not a robot.
