Excerpt: Ive had this printer for around 3 years now, i pruchased it because i knew i could soruce the cartridges from ebay and similar for around 4 pounds for the set. The printer takes a combination set of black and colour cartridges, 2 in total.
Economical and functional - great all round performer

Excerpt: We purchased this printer as a compromise between quality and cheap cartridge price. The cartridge prices are reasonable and they last for quite a long time under normal use. We were also pleasantly surprised with the quality of the print outs. The text is quick to print and good quality.
Excerpt: Epson C46 Printer Basics This printer is a fair few years old now but is still worthy of a mention. I picked mine up for next to nothing, I can't remember the exact price but I seem to remember getting change from £40.
Pros: Cheap printer, cheap cartridges
Cons: Print quality low, noisy, a little slow to start printing
Excerpt: Definitely for HOME USE ONLY! This printer should only be used as indicated by the makers, it should only be used only at home because it cannot take heavy printing jobs (like 40 pages or so).
Excerpt: I purchased the Epson C44 four years ago and replaced it with the C46, due to service requirement. I found the C44 printer to be very reliable, but slow at printing. I purchased the Epson C46 in May 2007 for second hand for £10:00 and as of present I have no signficant problem with the printer.
Excerpt: Our Epson Stylus C46 was bought 3 or 4 years ago as a standby printer, as our Epson CX3200 was showing signs of advancing age. We paid around £50 for the C46 and were immediately pleased with its performance.
Pros: Cheap, easy and produces good quality print and pictures
Excerpt: I recieved this printer free when I bought my laptop, but at the time it was worth £50. My parents have always had Epson's and never had any problems so was pleased it was an Epson I got free. Installation was so easy I thought I'd done it wrong!
