    I don't know the model and prices, coz price structure in mumbai is gonna change on Monday.

    HP are good, and u can refill the catridge BLaCk 150/- and colour 250/-. My friend has reffiled BLACK for 7 times and we don't find ne difference in quality. Check for original HP non carbon ink.

    You can go for CANON ip1000, very good performance and full value for money. I am using one for around 3 months.

    The best bet for that range would be the Canon pixma IP 1000...It has a great printing quality...The photo printing is also remarkable....The basic cost is very low....Great results with normal printing...& to top it all the running costs come out to be extremely low(way lower than any HP printer)

    Refilling has its own risks...You might refill a cartridge 5 times without anything drastic happening....But you may not be lucky the 6th time over & even a small leak & you would hav to say bye-bye to your printer...


    IMHO Its better to use "compatible" local cartridges if u ever want to look for cheaper options(which is not recommended) rather than opting for refilling....

    i'd suggest u HP as ive used it for 7 yrs ,refilling is as easy as a pen and it would cost u around 200\-rs per cattrige......cannon pixima ip-100 also should suit u but hp is more ++++++++reliable+++++++trustable

    my suggestion would be to add another 2000 or 15-1700 to your budget and buy a HP PSC 1400 series...its an all-in-one.

    otherwise go for pixma ip1000...its great
