      I'm happy with mine!

      The HP Officejet Pro K5400 costs about £80 (it depends where you get it from) and its unique marketing point is that it is supposed to be the world's fastest desktop printer for business color. I'm not quite sure what the difference between business colour and other sorts of colour are, but hey, who's worrying?

      It's a good machine to have if you want a reasonable nod towards a colour laser printer, but don't actually want the expense and desk space of owning one.
      It does colour printing of a very good quality - good enough for photos It works really well with HP photo paper (I've done a separate review of that if anyone is interested). It prints in 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution in black and white and 4800 x 1200 dpi resolution in colour.

      In terms of desk space, it's about average - I find all HP printers quite bulky, but it sits nicely on top of a filing cabinet.
      Printing costs are not bad. You have black and colour cartridges and standard refills cost about £17 each. That's quite dear, but the large size refills are better value at around £24. They last me several weeks and I do print every day.

      Speed of printing is very good for a printer of this size and cost. Black and white or colour take a similar amount of time (which is unusual, often the colour is a lot slower) - about 5 seconds a page. Draft printing is really quick - 2 seconds a page, again its the same for colour as for B/W - though i don't really know why you'd want to draft print in colour but there you go. Mine does double sided printing, which I always like, but the ink shows through if you use really cheap paper when doing that.
      all in all it is a good all round value for money printer, on the better end of the printer spectrum. It hasn't jammed or gone wrong in any way, other than needing to press the reset button occasionally, in over a year.
