    Default Recommend a photo printer that is cheap

    Hi

    Which photo printers come cheap and have cheap inks (one ink for each colour) and could print paper weights as high as 160gms?

    paiseh, i got my numbers wrong.


    Recently i loaded a 250gms paper into my 3in1 printer and the printer almost spoil - the printer head collide with the surface of the paper.

    So now I am looking for photo printers that could print on photo papers as thick as 250 gms.
    Any reccommendations?

    Not sure about paper weights - but i think the Epson R230 would be a good choice for less than $200. I have been using a R210 for some time and will probably switch to the R230 when my ink supply runs out.
