    As above really, I'm after a wireless printer and wondered if there was considered to be a particular 'best' in the field?

    Good quality photo prints would be a bonus!

    What makes a printer wireless is not the printer, but the adapter you attach to it. Any good printer can be set up as a wireless print station on a lan. Personally, I hate printers, and have gone through many brands. Currently I have a decent little Canon that does a good job with colour, 4 colour tanks ( a BIG bonus) and prints DVDs as well. Can't remember the model number (I'm at work right now....on lunch)!

    They do sell wireless printers that have built-in 802.11b,g,n adapters too you know. As well as selling print servers that can be wired, wireless, or bluetooth

    I say stay away from lexmark, (and by default, dell) at all costs.

    If at all possible get a brother or HP.

    If your computer supports it, get a blue tooth capable printer, much less problems and easier setup than an 802.11x standard.

    As SuperN says, they do sell a wireless printers, but I would think it would be far cheaper to purchase either a usb wireless adapter for any printer, or better yet, just plug in into your wireless router. You can also pick up a wireless printer server/hub for about $40. So, you have a number of possibilities!
