this is the third printer I have owned in less than ten years and this has lasted the longest and strongest so far the ink for this machine is cheaper than other ink for other printers and the paper to print photos on is not bad price either. I love the convience of printing my own photos at home and this all in one printer does a great job at photo printing. it scans copys and prints great. I love that one machine can take the place of many and this Kodak printer does a very good job replacing all the machines its not terribly heavy either it sits nicely in the top of my desk with out getting in the way too. for the price and the benefits it offers this is a great printer for the money and I love that the ink cartridges are affordable that the photos are beautiful and that it even scans and copys well! if you are in the market for a all in one printer I recommend this one I love it and it has saved me the un needed frusteration that my last printer caused me.
