Advantages: Cheap, and easy to use
Disadvantages: cartridges used up quickly
I bought my printer off Amazon for £19.95 whilst it was on sale. I think it was around £30 at the time. I have now had this printer for about 5 months now and I do like it. The quality is really good, especially for the price you pay for it. I haven't had any problems with it yet.
The printer cartridges get used up so quickly though. I don't use my printer all the time but I have had to change my cartridges twice already. I used to have an Epson and the ink lasted much longer than this printer. The only plus side is that HP cartridges are cheaper than Epson.
Usually the printer will come with a colour and and black cartridge when first purchased which is good. Otherwise I think the prices range from £16 - £20. DO NOT BUY it from a retailer, it is just a rip off. I bought my cartridges from Ebay and Amazon for just £6 (black) and £8 (colour). Always find the deals ;)
The printer is extremely easy to use and very light in weight. I just keep my printer on my desk and move it around whenver I need to plug it into my laptop.
The printer did not come with the USB to USB cable that connects laptop to printer so I would suggest that you buy it on ebay. I got mine for £1.50 i think.
Overall the printer is not too bad, with good quality printing, easy to use, easy to move around. Cartridges will always be pricey no matter what printer you choose to buy. Just remember Ebay and Amazon are where the deals are :)
Summary: Not bad for the price you pay for it.
