Summary: Yep, don't buy. I'm regretting buying this at Best Buy. I won't buy anything like this again without reading up on Amazon reviews! Replaced ink cartridges after the first batch ran out, we use the printer maybe 2 times a month to print a page or two at a time. It will not print black anymore.
Summary: This printer lasted barely 18 months. I've used it incidentally for documents and coupons, maybe 50 times. The black ink started depleting on a page I was printing. When I went to reprint the page, the ink completely disappeared and the page was blank.
Summary: We purchased this printer used from an Amazon seller 18 months ago for about $30 for use in our home. While we don't do any major printing, we do print documents with some regularity, and I will print an extra copy of a picture now and then rather than have it printed at the store.
Summary: One of the most prevalent issues with this printer is inability to print black or black streaking. My experience with these cheap printers is that they are designed to have a limited life so you buy another one sooner than later.
Summary: Continually has problems. Wont print black randomly, then next day it will. I've had to clean the printhead manually several times within first year of owning it. Unreliable piece of crap - save your money. Ink cartridges run out much faster than my last printer's did.
Summary: Gave it one star only b/c I have to. Read all the recent reviews... they are ALL the same. "Printer stopped printing black ink after the original cartridge ran out. Yep. yep. yep. What a joke.
Summary: This was the first time I purchased a 'home electronic' via Amazon but I was pleasantly pleased. I have used the printer now for over a year and it has exceeded my expectations. I have replaced the ink in it a couple of times after normal usage and had no problems - I even use refillable or off...
Summary: We purchased this printer/scanner because we needed something that could print the family photos we had as well as scan in the old ones we have in the old albums sitting around. It scans them in just fine, but the print quality has never been all that great.
Summary: I have owned this printer for almost a year. The duty cycle is very light, only a few pages a month, max. I was willing to put up with the crooked pages during printing. Hey, it's a cheap multi-function printer. But today the black ink stopped working. Must need a new cartridge, right? Wrong!
