Advantages: Accurate printing, few problems, long lasting, excellent scanning
Disadvantages: Tends to jam often, not 100% compatible with Vista
I purchased this printer over at least 3 years ago, at the time the cheap price tag was it's main selling point, followed by the features available.
It is fairly slow with printing and it uses a lot of ink so I would really only recommend this for people who don't need to use a printer very frequently. It worked brilliantly for printing off college assignments, which was it's main use for me.
It does a great job of printing off photographs of sizes up to A4 in good quality. The scanning capabilities are very good in colour or black and white, I was impressed with that feature for the price of the printer.
The printer has some compatibility problems with Vista, I've never been able to connect it properly to my laptop. Although it does print, I can't check the ink levels or change any options from my laptop which is very frustrating.
I also noticed that it has began printing word documents in bold, which is puzzling to me! Still, it has lasted a long time for me and I doubt that I have needed to buy more than 10 ink cartridges over the years that I have had it.
A great first printer or for those who don't need one frequently. It certainly has a long life.
Summary: A cheap printer with more good qualities than bad ones
