Summary: I received this printer with my Dell desktop purchase as a bundle deal. My old HP one just wasn't cutting it anymore. I'm actually very surprised to see so many negative reviews! I've had a few issues with it here and there, but nothing major. I think the biggest one I've had is that sometimes when I'm trying to print from my Mac, I have to completely restart the printer. The scan function is awesome, as is the copy one.
Summary: I have had the printer for about 1 month now. So far I have enjoyed wireless printing from my living room. The printer, once the signal is received from my computer, does a quick, true color print job. At this point I do not know how quickly the ink will be consumed, but for now am very happy with the printer, especially for the cost.
Summary: Overall, this is not a bad printer. The wi-fi setup is fairly simple, and the printer setup was smooth; however, using the printer was not as simple as the setup even with the included instructions. In particular, the accompanying software. One such software option is saving a scanned photo. Saving the photo as a .JPG is not an option, which means that more diskspace is used via .BMP as well as the photo not as sharp. I personnally prefer saving photos as .JPGs.
Summary: The printer is light and easy to move from room to room. The set up software guide was user friendly and easy to follow, only took a few minutes. All components are easily reached and well labeled. Ink replacement appears to be self explanatory and easily reached. Not sure about the amount of ink in cartridge or how often it will run out, but some ink did come with the printer, so it was usable immediately.
Great product and features, especially for the price.

Summary: So far so good for a $40 printer. It was easy to setup, the instructions were very easy to understand and the install CD gives you a play by play setup with pictures makes it super simple for anyone. The wifi works perfect, I love being able to scan right into a PDF with no cables attached. My only complaint was I had a small amount of difficulty getting the printer to recognize the print head (which you install during setup).
