Phil, Gloucester Graphics or photo printing

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It does exactly what the advertising says it will, and does so very, very well. Large capacity ink cartridges mean less time spent changing them, and, no need to mess about swapping between photo & matt black inks.
Bad points:
It's LARGE. A substantial desk or table will be needed for it to stand on.
