"Worst Printer I've ever owned! Ink is VERY expensive!"0.5 starson by HeyItsTony
Pros: -Cool touch buttons.
-The shiny black is cool looking
-Quick & easy set up.
-Easy to use.
Cons: -It's much slower than my old broken printer (My old printer was a Canon Pixma MP500).
-Uses 6 ink cartridges
-Doesn't hold a ream of paper.
-Most aftermarket ink cartridges won't work even if they have the ID chip in them.
Summary: It's not a printer for the budget conscious student. I've had to replace ALL of the ink cartridges two times now and I'm not even 1/2 way through ONE ream of paper yet. $88 each hit (for all 6 ink tanks). You can purchase the ink cartridges each separately at a higher price. It really bothers me that I ONLY print Black text and the most frequent ink tanks that need to be replaced are Yellow, Cyan & Magenta, I've replaced those three times now while the remaining colors have been replaced twice (On 1/2 a ream of paper) The ink is set to "FAST PRINT" which is low quality print. The printer uses 2 Black ink cartridges, which surprisingly, I've only had to replace twice( in less than 1/2 ream of paper used so far). I've never tried printing photos for fear of running out of ink even quicker. It also REALLY bothers me that when the Yellow ink runs out, the printer completely refuses to print anything, not even black text, until you replace the yellow ink. And there are TWO black ink tanks in the printer. I hate this printer. It's a MONEY TRAP!
