Summary: This printer is a little trooper. The scanner on top makes it almost indispensable. I've had mine for several years now and I have no complaints at all. It accepts aftermarket refilled ink cartridges with no problem.
Summary: This was a replacement for another MP240 that I had. I would have gone a bit more "tech," but I had too many unused cartridges to do it. Having said that, this is a nice, solid little printer at a decent price. It's not going to send your fax, but it will give you clean copies and scans.

Summary: I got this printer as part of a package with my Gateway computer. My trusty HP printer had been working perfectly for over 7 years when I gave it away to make room for this one. Needless to say, I was disappointed when this printer broke after only 2 years.
Summary: I bought this product at best buy in 2009 and it's the best printer I've owned. Fast setup and easy to operate. As the cost is low I was able to afford to purchase one for a friend as well. We've both had them now for over 2 years and it has not failed us yet.
