Summary: I use mostly black and white but when I do use color, it is not even and a pain to deal with. Perhaps this printer had a defect but the support has not been helpful. I purchased it at Staples who is history now. This printer will not print black and white if one of the color cartridges are off.

Not only does this printer take breaks to perform 'maintenance' whenever the heck it feels like it - including in the middle of print jobs; and maintenance means dumping tons of ink on a...
Summary: Broke after light use within a year of purchase. I also realized the inkjet on this unit cannot be refilled, and you must buy new ones every time you run out of ink and when I bought a new supply it wouldn't recognize it.There is limited, if no support, for mobile printing from iOS/Android and the...
