The Deskjet 6500 series is a fantastic printer. It connects with ease to both PC and Mac (the latter already had the drivers installed), and is easy to install and set up straight from the box in just a few minutes. It's quick to print both in black and white and colour and produces great quality prints every time (though I wouldn't personally use it for photos on glossy paper). Cartridges are pretty standard HP ones, so won't cost an arm and a leg either. It's very nice on the eye with its brushed metal finish, although it does take up quite a large footprint on the desk, which is something to consider if you have a small amount of room like I do! There is however a neat little fold out paper tray that catches the prints when they're done so they don't go flying!
