Excerpt: I bought this printer less than a year ago. Had problems with the usb from the beginning. You have to unplug from printer to get PC to boot up then plug back in after booted. It went from that to not letting you use either colored or black inck cartridge. If one runs out and the other is full it will not let you click on icon to let you use other ink cartridge only. Also started making a loud clicking noise when you turned on printer from out of idle.
Summary: I've had this printer for 2 years now. I use it intermittandly. But there are a few things I hate about it: Scanning over a network has never worked for me. However, scanning directly to a memory card does work great and is a nice option. The ink lasts for a pitifully short time. I replaced the black ink cartridge ($20) about 2 months ago. It is now empty again, and I think it was good for about 100 pages. That's ridiculous.
