I have had this printer for over a year now and have had no problems with it yet!!. The only minor problem is it is not hte best looking printer of them all, but its job isn't to look pretty! Its quite bulky as its about 50cm by 20cm by 20cm. I feel this is quite big for a printer! Itsgot quite a mimalist look, all silver with a black panel at the front where it opens to replace the ink cartridges!
It has to be connected to a USB port to work properly. When first switching it on it takes about 2 minutes to start up completely but then its very quick. On average it takes about 10 seconds to print an A4 pae of writing and about 1 minute to print writing with some pictures(clipart ect.). To print a high quality picture or a photo it takes about 3 minutes which i still think is good as the picture is such high quality! Most brochures it comes in says it prints 18 pages per minute black and white, and 13 pages per minute colour but i have never tried this so i do not know if it is true. The pritn resolution is 4800 * 1200 dots per inch!
It only prints up to A4 size, but the good quality photo print makes up for this! From most shops it comes free with some special photo paper which makes the pictures look really good. Consequently this paper can be bought in most print stores anyway! The ink cartridges do run out quite quickly but there supposed to do 28 pages without running out! I have not found this, from past experience i would say about 14 pages.
The cartridges can be found in many shops fairly cheap! I bought this printer from argos for 49.00 but it can be found cheaper elsewhere! Argos also sell the cartridges for 5.99 black and 10.99 colour. I would not advise buying them her as they can also be found at a better value elsewhere. Most local print shops sell them for 4.99 each which is a good saving on the colour.
Overall i would reccomend this to evreyone wanting to buy a inkjet printer as its good value, has cheap ink tanks and is reliable! 10/10
