Summary: Ordered this computer because I have one like it and it has been great. The product was not packed very well and though no fault of the seller, the box was crushed and the P.O. had to retape it befor I could get possession of it.
Summary: This is a great printer. We have another one just like it. It arrived quickly and in "like new" condition. Set up was easy. The USB cable supplied with it didn't work. When we switched it for a new cable, it worked fine. Prints perfectly.
Summary: everything works as promised but the ink that is supplied with the unit is a joke. I havn't printed 25 sheets (mostly all b/w) and indicator for ink levels shows almost empty at this time. I find out now to purchase new ink will cost almost as much as I paid for the printer.
Excellent Print Quality but yes, it does drink ink

Summary: The Good: Print Quality! I have been very surprised and impressed with the photo print quality of this printer. If you use the proper paper, you really CAN get lab-comparable results! I dabble in some photography and belong to some clubs here and there, some of which have ongoing competitions.
Summary: We picked up the Epson Stylus CX8400 at a local store. I had been looking at it and chose it mostly for 4 reasons: it's sexy and black, I can print directly from my memory card with it, it functions as a scanner as well and it was priced reasonably.
Summary: This all-in-one printer/copier/scanner is great! The setup is a breeze and the print speed/scan time is quick. My only gripe is that the USB cable to connect to the computer was not supplied, so before I could finish the setup I had to run to the nearest Best Buy and purchase a $35 cable.
Great printer, nice features, could improve on ink consumption

Summary: While I agree that the printer tends to use up ink a bit more quickly than others I've used, I believe I read that it can be remedied by purchasing a special piece of equipment on ebay for about $20.
Summary: Although this is a very efficient printer/scanner/copier and very reasonably priced, it sucks up ink faster than any printer I've ever used --and it seems like I purchased a new HP printer annually. I naively thought that being able to replace single cartridges for each color would save money.
Summary: I bought mine in Canada and was able to yeild about 106 pages of full color printouts before my ink was low. And I use a compatible cartridge that retails for $4.99 for each color the yield amount on these cartridges is 24ml here in Canada that is why I got so many pages of full color.
Summary: The printing quality is great on this printer. Printing speed is good, the scanner is great. I've scanned several pictures and documents and had no trouble saving it to the computer. I've had this printer now close to 2 months.
