This printer was inexpensive but I wish I had bought a better printer to start with. We go through ink so quickly that at the end of the day, we would have saved money in the long run by buying a better quality printer from day one. I do not like that there always seems to be a light blinking. The power button blinks for no apparent reason. And honestly, within a week of putting a new ink cartridge in, the button indicating low ink will blink. We have tried Epson brank cartridges and off brand ones. Regardless, this printer drinks ink. I would not classify our printng needs as high volume, so it would be nice to not spend a small fortune in ink. This printer is noisy and slow. It is all the things you hate about a printer. I do like that the printer does not have tons of bells and whistles. It has a scanner which we have used on occassion. I guess it does have a fax machine function, but honestly, who uses a fax machine at home? Ink/Paper Use I feel like we are always seeing an indicator that at least one ink cartridge is low.
