I have two of these printers due to their low price.
They are both reliable and have had no mechanical faults. Some issues arise if you boot up with it switched off I have found and the paper feeder will sometimes feed through a little off centre.
As far as the software is concerned its great. You can select automatic options for speed or quality, while also being able to adust all the other bits and pieces. Also has an aligning facility for the cartridges and clearing the print nozzles. The cartridges that come with are fairly small, but it does have the option to have slightly larger cartridges installed.
Looks wise, it is a pretty decent looking printer - nothing to be ashamed of. It can also be closed up in to a neat box, which is handy if you want to tuck it away somewhere.
Print quality however is average, I wouldn't recommend it for professional or photograph quality users. But for the odd letter and other odd jobs its great.
Additions - - This printer does have a colour facility - In relation to price, when I purchased this printer it cost the same price as replacing both cartridges for my old printer!
ADDITION 2- I don't think I have ever managed to print a image like the one above demonstrates.
