I bought the HP 1310 All in One Printer about 5 years ago. I purchased the printer the first year we started homeschooling. I have scanned. I have printed. I have copied. For 5 years. This printer is still going like the energizer bunny. My husband surprised me with a Wireless HP All in One this year for Black Friday. It took me two days to open the box because I just didn't want to let my workhorse go. This printer does it all. It copies in black and it will make color copies all with a touch of the button. You do not have to have your computer on to copy something. The computer scans really well. It was small of enough to toss into my car and take a trip to scan my grandmother's pictures before she passed. The quality of these scanned pictures are fantastic. The printer came with installation software and some extra software that I never use. I have Microsoft Digital Image software so I never had the need to use it. My only gripe would be how much Ink cost. It was truly out of control. I set my printer to use the least amount of ink possible, so I didn't use as much as a lot of people do. If you want a true workhorse that will last you years, go with a HP!
