I got this printer at a good price along with my laptop last year, and it works fine, but it is slow and noisy at start-up and when it reloads paper. I like that it has a built in scanner, because that allows me to work on a paid project part-time from home. I noticed that white paper shows up off-white and I have to edit so it doesn't print that way. It works well for documents and pictures, so I can't complain other than the slow and noisy start-up and when it readjusts after taking out the paper to print double sided. I wish I had gotten a wireless printer/scanner instead since I use it with a laptop that I'd rather not have in this room when it's time to print or scan. I haven't needed to change the ink yet, but I do more scanning than printing. It works well if you turn it on before you need it and leave it on until you're sure you're done. Performance It takes a while starting up, but then performs well. I don't really use it enough to be a good judge. Maybe I should have waited to take this survey after scanning and printing pictures, which I plan to do soon. Ink/Paper Use I've bought ink twice since purchasing this years ago. I wasn't using it much though. My dad moved it to his desk and has been using it since his printer has a paper jam we can't find. I don't remember ever having a paper jam with my printer. The only reason we got the printer is because is was on sale special with my laptop. We already had a printer, so I didn't use this one as much. We're starting to use it more now because of the other printer's unfound paper jam. Design I think it makes too much noise starting up.
