I'm using an HP Photosmart B9180 for photo printing and HP photo papers. It's old, but produces great prints. I don't print that much any more. If I didn't already have the printer, I would probably not purchase one that could print 13x19 as I don't print many pictures beyond 8x10 any more. It's a big machine that uses pigment based ink, but the cost to operate it is making it cost prohibitive. It's about $200 for a set of 8 ink cartridges. Not to mention the desk real estate I could gain by getting rid of it For smaller prints for around the home, my canon MX860 works well too.
