I'm not happen with my current Cannon Printer for my family photo printing so I'm looking to buy a dedicated photo printer.

I am curious as to what folks on the site use for this.

Any names and model # plus experiences will be greatly appreciated.

Given the range of printers, i would suggest that you narrow down the scope by giving people an idea of cost and also print size that you require.

Otherwise you might get something completely unsuited to your requirements and budget.

I use Epson Picturemate 240 and I like it better than the latest Canon dye-sub printers(I have Selphy ES2 also). I think the latests one is 290 but the older models still put out excellent prints. You're limited to 4X6 prints or smaller.

I have an Espon R1400 for the past 2 years and love it. I have printed 4x6 to 13x19 with no problems. Default settings are very good, but custom settings to your liking is where it really shines. B&W is also excellent.

I've been using an Epson 2200 for a long time. Really nice 11 x 17's and 8 x 10's have come out of that printer. I've found a local Pro lab, close by, that does excellent work at great prices so I am getting rid of the printer.

I appreciate the replies guys, looks as the overall pick for brand was Epson. I have never owned an Epsom product but have always wanted to try one. I think I may start with one of the less expensive ones.

I have an opportunity to try several tomorrow at the local Best Buy.

Look into the Epson 800, it's an all in one photo printer with 6 colors, scanner, and fax. They sell for about $229.00, $20.00 less than I paid for mine last month but still worth the money.

I've had an Epson 2400 for awhile now and its been great. Replacing inks can be costly (like that for any printer) but I can do a lot of prints before I run out of inks. Then again my prints tend to be smaller.
