I want to get a new printer. The one I have does not print pictures very well. I want to keep the scanner feature. I am also looking for ink that won't be super expensive. These are the four I have been looking at:

HP Photosmart C4440

HP Photosmart C5540

The ink for both of these is:
Black #74 $14.50
Color #75 $18.50
Photo #99 $26.97
Combo pack #74 & #75 $30.50
Combo Ink #75 and 100 4x6 photo paper $26.97

HP Photosmart C6380

The ink for this one is:
564 Black $9.97
564 Yellow, Blue, Magenta, and Photo $35.97

Kodak ESP 3 SE

Kodak ESP 5

The ink for these two are:
10 Color: $14.47
10 Black: $9.97
Combo pack of Color and Black $24.94
Color ink and 180 4x6 gloss photo paper $17.88

I think I may be leaning towards the Kodak one because it does not require a special ink for printing photos and the ink is cheaper.

What do you think?

I have an HP without the scanner feature and love it. I'm not around it at the moment but I do know it uses the 02 inks and I can get the value pack for $36 at Target...which comes with 150 pieces of 4x6 paper so to me, $36 everyother month or so (depending on how often I print) is well worth it.

Good luck deciding!

I have an HP All In One that also uses the 2 ink.

I get the ink at Staples because they have a great empty cartridge return policy. You get, at the end of the month a Rewards cert. You can take up to 10 cartridges in and get $3 for each of them. The ink runs $10.99 for the color, $19.99 for the black but I get the combo pack which has all the color ink, a black and pack of photo paper for $39.
