If you have a fat bank account, you'll be able to afford the ink.

Summary: I've been using the Workforce 520 printer for just over 2 months now. It is easy to use and produces clear documents. The fax and scanner are also easy to use. The menu and buttons are very user-friendly and intuitive. The big downfall of this printer is the amount of ink it uses, and the user's inability to print when 1 cartridge is empty. The printer takes 3 color and 2 black cartridges. It uses a CRAZY amount of ink!
Pros: I purchased this printer on sale at best buy for $69.99 great printer for that price. Great wireless for the money prints fast and quality is very good. Sets up easily and the price is right
Cons: I don't like having to use a disc to install on any computer that uses the printer. I am sure in the neat future I will lose the disk and be out of luck for a new install.Not sure about the ink usage as I haven't had it long enough to run out of ink.
Excerpt: I have had this printer for over a year and have had a few issues with it. For the most part I like this printer a lot and would buy again if needed another printer. The ink is cheap and you can buy off name for it or refill yourself, however I find it’s a paint to refill yourself. The ink does last a long time whether you buy name brand or off name brand. The pictures always came out great. I have had no issues with it. The screen is easy to see and read.
