Ink is too expensive for this "cheaply" priced printer

Summary: It looks like a good deal, but I can't find any generic ink cartridges that will work with it, which means if you buy it you're left paying full price for "official" ink from Dell--and that means paying $20 a cartridge every. single. time. With even moderate use, the total ownership cost of a printer like this will go through the roof after just one year.
Ink runs out quickly and is very expensive to replace.

Summary: This seemed like a good machine when I bought it at a very good price however the ink cartridges ran out very quickly and it cost almost as much as buying a new printer to replace them £19.99 for a black cartridge and £23.99 for colour. I tried getting a re-filled cartridge to save money but that seemed to dry up everytime i didn't use the printer for more than a couple of days. This meant removing the cartridge to clean the print heads everytime.
Summary: Besides looking good, this printer has very little going for it. I am sure if it worked properly, it would be a good all-in-one. However, I have had nothing but problems! I first tried to install the software for the printer on my personal laptop, a Dell with Windows 7, but the drivers did not work as they were for Vista. So, I came to the Dell website and downloaded the Windows 7 drivers, but still it does not work - my laptop does not recognise the device.
