Advantages: The cartridges last a while & cheap, Scanner is quick, Print quality is good, Great Value,
Disadvantages: Printing isn't very fast, cartridges are a bit fiddly
I bought this printer on sale for £34.99 at PC world. I did quite a bit of research on which brand of printer would be best to go with this time as I have had two lexmark printers before and been completely stung on the price of their ink cartridges!
I needed an all in one printer that doesn't wizz through ink and when it does I can actually afford new cartridges! PC world and Asda have their own brand catridges which are compatable with this printer which is perfect! Getting the cartridges in is a bit fiddly and you can't use an ink refill system ( the botttles of refill ink) as the cartridges have those annoying chips on them.
The print quality is just fine for what I need ( I print the occasional photo, do alot of scanning) the printing isn't the fastest but can't argue for the price.
I don't really use the copying function but i tried it and it works well.
I've had it for nearly a year now and it's still going which is a record for printers in my house!
Summary: Good value everyday all in one printer
