I got this printer free from blue hippo. Its a good printer. you can use one black-tri cartridge on ink or two cartridges one of black and one of tri-color. this seems a good feature for both those that do alot of printing and those that do little printing or on a tight budget. You can also use hp vivera inks for printing pictures. It also has a feature called Smart Web Printing. to make print from the web easier and not cut off edges.
