Summary: Five years and it is still going strong. I have owned this printer for five years and it has performed admirably. I have owned many HP printers over the last 20 years and this is one of the best. I got 9800 copies out of the first set of print heads, and that calculates just over one cent per copy.
Summary: I love this machine. Older style but has all the "bells and whistles" I need. Also has ability to reduce/large copies which newer HP models do NOT have. Great helpful feature makes me wonder why they deleted it from newer models.
Summary: I have owned mine since October 2009. Last year I had to replace the two print heads. I refill my own ink cartridges now and do not have any issues in that area. See my other reviews on the ink cartridges and the use of a digital postage scale. I have found this printer to be very reliable.
