Advantages: Affordable, convenient
Disadvantages: Sometimes problems connecting
I bought this printer a couple of years ago in order to print off important/boring documents.
The reasons I chose this printer
Ink is affordable/available - At the time of buying, one of the factors involved in buying a printer for me was how easy it would be to buy ink for the printer and how expensive the ink would be. I found that the ink was widely available online at a reasonable price.
Print to the edge - You can chose to print with no borders! Great for printing off posters if like me you find yourself printing off short-run posters for events instead of taking a trip to the print shop.
Print Wirelessly via WiFi - If like me you're fed up of wires running across your room, invest in this printer! It makes it more convenient to print as and when you want instead of having to dig out or untangle needless connector cables. This is also ideal for if there is more than one person in the household using the printer as it is easy enough for multiple users to connect to.
Photocopier - Sometimes it's just too much hassle to scan a document, save it and then print it off, this is where the built in photocopier comes in useful, with just a touch of a button you can have instant copies of whatever documents you wish to reproduce.
Other useful features
Scanner - I never thought I'd ever need a scanner again but was proven wrong recently when someone asked me to scan and email them a document, so it is useful after all.
LCD Display/memory card slot - This printer has the ability to allow you to view pictures from memory card on a built in LCD display/print them off straight from memory card so you don't even have to boot up your computer.
Individual Inks - only replace the colours you use and not the full set.
I had to reinstall the printer a few times to get my laptop to recognise the printer every time i try to connect to it.
Overall I am very happy with this printer, if it wasn't for the odd few problems getting my laptop to connect to it sometimes then I would give it 5 stars, but as sometimes I do have problems connecting, I'll give it 4.
Summary: Almost perfect
