Just wanted to get some recommendation on what printer to get. Will probably get an inkjet printer, looking for one under 200 dollars. Would like good quality photo prints. Anyone have any tips?

I was at FRY's a couple days ago playing with all their printers and their "print a test page" buttons. Anyway, one that kinda stuck out was the Epson C80. It's got the fastest print speed among all the other sub $200 printers, nice picture quality and it looks cool too. Oh, and they were having a $35 rebate on it I think.
I thought of maybe putting a Blue Cold cathode light in there cuz the top if kind of clear, that'd look so cool...

My suggestion would be to go to staples.com. If you have around $200 to spend, then you'll get free shipping for sure, there are many coupons floating around right now (check the deals forum), and you might find a good printer with a mail-in rebate or some other special offer.
Also, I second the stay away from Lexmark. They always seem shotty to me, and the print quality is not all that good. HPs are really good-dunno why they can't do the same for computers. I don't have much experience with Epson or Canon, but I've heard only good things from my friends.
