    im looking for a nice, small, cheap printer just for basic printing.
    - colour print
    - a4 format paper
    - it doesnt have to print fast
    - double sided print would be nice, if its not too expensive

    can you recommend some printers, or some type of printers, and also what should i consider when buying a printer? what are the details i should examine?

    for basic printing theres a huge choice of machine , it probably comes down to the cost of replacement ink - getting a machine which has separate colour cartridges is often a cheaper alternative
    do you want the machine to automatically double print or are you happy to turn the pages over and re-print the 2nd side

    Kodak boast the cheapest ink usage on UK advertising, although I have seen quite a few issues on the machines with paper jams and not working, however, in those cases Kodak replaced the printer as they where under warranty

    have a look at Canon they often have separate ink cartridges on there machines and the more expensive HPs , also look at the cost to replace the ink in your country

    i forgot to mention this:

    i want to print mainly a4 format paper.
    i want to print about 5 pages every month, so i dont use it much
    output doenst have to be waterproof
    i want to print mainly text files
    i want to print from 1 pc
    printer should be small, and cost about 110 euro.

    any printer would meet that requirement - it will simply come down to the cost of replacement inks
