"Plastic junk only 2 years old wastes lots of costly ink"

  • Pros: When it works it makes nice photo quality prints, but at what cost?! Don't bother!
  • Cons: Uses INK to "clean" nozzles and still doesn't clean them! Stops working correctly after little or light use! Prints bands through your prints wasting ink and paper. Simple problem that is impossible to fix. No room to work around on the inside to repair
