    Hi Guys,

    Was on a hunt of buying a new multifunction device to serve the basic purposes , and on a maximum budget of Rs.5000.Need ur suggestions for the same. I have basically narrowed my search to the Canon MP-145 or the MP-198, but lemme tell you , i m a noob in printing matters, so its upto u to decide , which one should i go in for.And , can i sneak a laser MFD in that budget , i know m asking for a bit more :D ?

    Here are my preferences :

    1. Good performance.
    2. Lost cost cartridges.
    3. Value For money.
    4. Good printing and scanning.
    5. Optimum photocopying speed.

    How are Epson's printers ?? I don't want to go with HP one's because of high cost of cartridges ! But still , i can change my decision. Also , what's the phenomena of "individual cartridges" in MFD's ?

    Any help regarding this would be highly appreciated .

    Regards,
    BBThumbHealer :)

    Dude imo hp is the leader in this segment as its print quality aws scan quality is best and don't think of cartridges cost as u can always refil it....' max 4 times in my case and the print quality is good as before but a little diff in my 3 refil...'

    canon is good and has a good looks but hp leads it away...'

    Now if u wanna scan and print in bulks then go 4 hp otherwise canon is also a good option... '

    I have MP145 and it gives great printouts and good scan results and it cost less than Rs. 3300 and you get a 2Gb pen drive free.
    If you want more features then the MP198 comes onto the list if you dont need pictbridge card reader etc then Mp145 all right.
