This is a really cheap (and by that I mean inexpensive) printer for everyday use. I use it for printing colour lecture notes for uni. It is quick to warm up and can print duplex which saves a lot of paper. The only con is that the ink cartridges are quite expensive. HOWEVER, I bought refills online and I have been using the original cartridges for over a year. The print quality is still great and is very economical to use. Highly recommended, especially because you can refill the cartridges and ... keep using them, even though the printer thinks that they are empty. More >
