Excerpt: I purchased this printer with the intent to print photos every onece in a while. When I was low on ink, I when out and purchased some replacements. The black seems to go quickly. After installing the new ink cartridge, by the time it was finished cleaning and aligning, it was half empty. I then printed 5 pictures ( 5x7 ) and then the ink was out! buying a $10 ink cartrdge to last for onlt 5 pic is not worth it! Later on, I receviced an email for litigation for HP.
