Well, the printer market has gotten simpler in the last year. Now the main thing, if you want a printer for digital photos is that you can either pick an all-in-one that gives excellent print quality or you can get a high end dedicated printer. Here are the two choices from PC Magazine that make the most sense to me:
h2. All in One
It use to be there was a big tradeoff in quality if you got an all-in-one that included scanning and printer, but the “Canon Pixma MP800R”:http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,1961536,00.asp seems just about perfect. It doesn’t include a fax module, but does allow you to network it with Ethernet or 802.11 which is great. Print quality is excellent and it lets you scan as well.
“Pricegrabber”:http://www.pricegrabber.com/p__Canon_PIXMA_MP800R_All_In_One_Printer,__17744224/sort_type=bottomline has it for $370 street.
h2. Professional Printer
I have a Canon i9900, but just this year, Epson one upped this high end category with the “Epson Stylus Photo R2400″:http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,1848554,00.asp. It uses no less than 10 different color inks and the quality is amazing. It is $800 street, but worth it if you have a DSLR and want to print gigantic (19″x44”) posters or want something indistinguishable from professional.
