Excerpt: As it was a gift from my parents, I had little say in choosing this particular device. Initially, I’d requested a printer; yet, when I was told that I could get a printer, a scaner and a copier in one - a HP PSC 1410 - and for a …
Summary: I have had this printer for 5 years now and I think it's great. There was a little confusion getting it started initially due to haveing to download some Windows Vista drivers but it has been faultless ever since. I really don't understand all the negative reviews on here regarding the printer ink and it's rate of consumption. I have probably bought refils no more than once per year if that but I don't really print that much and who really needs to in todays digital age.

Well folks, for about $15 you can buy a quart of HP black ink in bulk, buy a plastic syringe to refill it with and refill the black ones easily. I have had my printer for 3 years. It functions flawlessly and I often print 40-50 pages at once. You can find how to refill them on the internet (a VERY easy function) and it costs almost nothing.

This has been a reliable product, and hope my used one last for many years.

Summary: This model I believe is now discontinued, but I had lots of ink left over when my first one died. I wanted the same printer so that I would not have to throw away lots of ink. I found a used one on E-bay for $40 delivered, and it works great. Would have had to toss more than $40 in ink away. This doesnt have lots of bells or whistles, but it makes good copies and that is all I needed it for.
