Summary: The quality control must be uneven on these printers, because you would think they were terrible from reading the reviews. I have had mine for a long time now and it is a workhorse. I have an expensive Canon with the difficult little ink cartridges that I thought I would be using when this one gave out, but the expensive one is just sitting. This one is fine. The cartridges are easy to get and easy to replace.
Summary: I bought this printer after my extremely old Deskjet (11-years-old) bit the dust as a replacement for basic black and white printing. I never use the color print option, so obviously I cannot review that feature of this printer. However, the black printing is very quick, to save money on ink I always keep the printer settings on economy fast print, which looks neat enough for printing documents.
Summary: DOES NOT WORK. CARRIAGE DOES NOT MOVE.WHAT ELSE IS NEEDED. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Summary: Had the printer over a year now and find that overall the machine is good but the ink carts they use are HORRIBLE. Burns through text printing pages fast. Expect to have to buy a new one every 30 pages of text printed.
Good, cheap, and only prints...that's why I like it

Summary: I've had this printer for a while...probably 2/3 of a year. It's worked great for me. I use it only once a week or so to print emails, directions on Google Maps, etc. But I've also used it to print out my resume when I was job hunting. It always worked fine. I have no interest in printing photos or anything fancy. I just need mostly black and white. It is cheap, good, and only prints. That's why I bought it. It does the job and I'm happy.
Summary: when i upgraded my computer i found that there was no connection for my old printer. I looked around on e-bay for a new printer and found that the prices were the same or higher than other sites. when i looked in used printers, i found that the price was cheaper, my money was protected, and they had what i needed.
Summary: The only advantage I can think of with this printer is that it has so few buttons it's hard to go wrong with technique. But you start a printing job and just when you're ready to take a hammer to it because nothing is happening, it will print. The first time I had to replace the black ink cartridge ( which comes with about two drops of ink in it), it would not recognize the new cartridge at all. This thing is a monument to planned obsolescence! Stay away!
