I have owned this printer for approximately 12 months, and during that time it has been nothing but trouble! it looks good, but unfortunately it's performance lets it down. It is supplied with a set of ink cartridges (half full as is usual with a new printer) It started well and seemed to produce good quality black and white and colour prints. The refill cartridges are fairly expensive in comparison to other printers I have owned, but they are separate. The printer will not work once one colour has run out. If you wish to clean or check the print heads, there is an extremely complicated set of instructions for pressing various buttons in various orders! It can be done, but it will drive you mad! It takes in multiple sheets of parer at random instead of one at a time and clogs up easily. My list of errors coud go on and on, but to cut a long story short I used the printer to print wedding stationary and half way through a cog flew out of the front! It continued printing, but now puts huge magenta splodges on every print! Unfortunately the 12 month warranty has run out. In my opinion a waste of the £139.99 I paid for this printer. I have had better results with much cheaper printers.
