So what's the best printer under $100?
i would go for an Epson dye 6-color based printer...
had FOUR Epson Stylus Photo P50 (europe) T50 (US i think)
I used them on prom events to print out fotos directly on the event for 2-5€ per print since
all cartriges i used are refillable ones and high quality dye ink options are cheap as hell.
I actually even recorded a 10min video of my printer for the ebay auction
dont mind its german but there you have an slight view how GOOD acutally the print quality is on glossy photo papers. Its just awesome!
I did print A WHOLE LOT of 10x15cm Prints and 13x18cm borderless.
All Epson Desktop Photo Printers and Photo AIO (All in One) Units I had come in contact that uses 6 Colors (Light Cyan and Light Magenta added to C Y M K ) have just fantastic results.
I myself have an 13x19 Epson Stylus Photo 1400, in the US the epson desktop printers
with photo capabilites called Artisan, you should even look for a used unit on ebay or craigslist...
