"Running great after initial setup, great value"4.0 starson by shoppingfortech
Pros: Low price
Seems well-made & durable, not flimsy like other inexpensive printers
Easy setup following clear manual
Easy to use LCD
Comes with good supply of ink
Cons: None so far. Only scored 4 stars since I just bought it so can't be sure how it will hold up.
Summary: I just purchased this printer after checking many reviews online. Was tempted to buy Lexmark S305 by review on this website but was concerned about ink costs (partly based on experience with a Lexmark a few years ago).
This machine seems to be very well made. It was very carefully packed, and I like the detachable printer head, which other reviewers say comes in handy in case repairs are needed. Setup took about half an hour, but I appreciated the clear, detailed instructions and took my time to make sure I didn't damage anything. Like I said, the machine feels very durable for the price. Parts click into place easily so you don't feel like you're going to break it (like you might with less well-made models.)
I printed a page in color & made a b&w copy of it. The quality isn't what you would expect from a snazzy printer shop, but it definitely looks good enough for everyday use like personal business, schoolwork, or copying documents for your own records, which is just what I wanted it for. I did do the optional step of a test sheet to align printer heads, so that probably helped.
Note that if you do not connect wirelessly, you will need to purchase a separate USB cable (I think about $25). I was lucky to have one already. It's probably to buyer's benefit that the cable is not included since this keeps the cost low.
