Help with printer buying

I have the predecessor, the 3200, but if you want quality to FRAME, the rx500, or maybe even the epson 6400...on head to head tests with HP's 2410 using photo quality paper, rx500 is beautiful.

if you want to print photo's then i would consider using CVS or some other drug store. A good photo printer will cost a few hundred $$$ and then combined with the special paper and ink it will be expensive.
