"Great printer for light, occasional use!!"4.5 starson by Starfleet007
Pros: *Actually, the ink is a very good value. Always buy the extra large cartridges. If you don't use lots of color, buy the standard size and set your machine to print gray-scale only to save on color for only when you need it. Also, set it for fast printin
Cons: *LCD screen is small and not back-lit. Not a major thing, but it would have been nice to have been lit.
*In a networked world, I think all printers should have an Ethernet port available.
Summary: I rated this machine for what it is. For under $100, I wasn't expecting a speed demon. I don't need one for occasional use. The XL black cartridge can do an estimated 401 pages of mixed text and graphics set at the default mode which is the normal setting, not the fast setting. You will have the ink last much longer than you expected set at the fast mode.
Unless you are printing a lot of the same item, this machine with the single multi-color cartridge is great for low color users. Every time you replace the ink, you get a new print head on the cartridge ready for use. I have had the multi cartridge set ups and if you don't use it enough, they can dry up and ruin your built in print head or you will pay a lot of money to replace the print head if its replaceable. I really like this machine and recommend to anyone who fits the criteria for its features.
