"Good printer but the Ink cost is going to get you"3.0 starson by john_stone
Pros: This is my first wireless and so far it has been nice. I like the desgin and set up. The cost ($80 at Stapples) made me feel like it was a good value ...
Cons: HOWEVER, the black ink ran out fast (2 weeks) after the initial set up. I'm hoping that this is not normal because I looked on-line for discount cartridges and none are out there for this printer. And refill stores won't refill the cartridges either.
Summary: I was looking for a nice basic wireless printer to just print up everyday things at home. I think I found that but in the long run the idea of often having to shell out $16 for the standard cartridge to $25 for the XL one makes the purchase frustrating.Three stars is way too high for this printer. After going out and buying new ink cartridges which about equals the value of this printer. I'm finding out that it is sucking through the ink even in draft mode and constantly needs to deep clean the printer heads. Even with that it isn't printing clearly. I wish I bought something else.
