Summary: We bought it a billion years ago and have hardly ever used it because it just effing sucks. It won't print unless both black cartridges are full (BOTH!!! EVEN WHEN ONE IS FULL!!!) and if one is almost empty you accidentally print off a 70 page packet missing every other paragraph.
Summary: Do you like aggravation? Do you hate money, time, and the feeling of not being frustrated? Then this is the printer for you. The ink problems have been discussed by others, but know that even if money is no object to you and you have your own infinite well of ink cartridges that this printer is...
Summary: Anytime I want to spend a couple of hours feeling frustrated and unproductive, I can always try to use my Workforce 520. I am an average kind of user. I expect that using a printer ought to be kind of like driving a car: after a bit of training I expect to put the key in, start it up and drive.
DOES NOT WORK WITH APPLE, and maybe not with anything else either

Summary: This is the worst printer. I have to turn it on and off between every single print job for it to work. Plus, the scanning is just awful. It creates HUGE documents (like 10MB), when other scanners turn the same product into 150 KB.
Summary: This printer "runs out" of ink way too often to be work it. I've had this printer for 3 years and I've replaced the ink countless times. We weren't even using it for almost a year because I refused to keep spending money on ink. Don't even consider buying it.
Summary: I have had this printer for about a year. This thing goes through ink like nothing I have ever had in the past and I have owned HP, EPSON, BROTHER AND ETC. If one ink level is low, it will not let you print.
Summary: Although the print quality of this machine is quite good, it does no good whatsoever if the paper will not feed. After spending almost $60. on new ink cartridges the printer will not accept the paper no matter what type it is.
Summary: I got the Workforce 520 when i got my laptop thinking the copy, scanner, printer feature would be helpful. It was a great printer! for 20 minutes......It runs through ink like crazy! I have to buy new ink for it all the time.
Summary: I've had this printer for almost a year now with very low usage. After about 10 months I run out of black ink from my two black ink cartridges (both empty). An option pops up for you to buy more ink... so I accept and pay $70 for a pack of all 3 colors + 1 black ink cartridge to be delivered.
