"Have been using it for 1 year."

  • Pros: Lots of functionality.
  • Cons: Ink cartridges are expensive. Scanning to pdf software isn't good. This printer STOPS printing if any of the four cartridges run out of ink!! That's just irritating.

"This can not print in B&W if the color ink is empty"

  • Pros: Low price and decent quality printouts
  • Cons: If the color print cartridges run out you can not print in black and white. Thus you have to buy all 3 color cartridges if they run out and they are not cheap. This is the case even if your black ink is full. There is no B&W only mode.

"Better buy a good printer"

  • Pros: There are 9 features packed into 1. Wireless feature is nice, The scan feature is good too.
  • Cons: Extremely poor print quality. You can visibly notice coarse pixels. Even with gray; it mixes colors to create black print. Color ink goes away in huffy; so next time your color inks are gone - it won't print black at all (it was full in my case).
