I have a love hate relationship with this printer. When I first bought it about four and a half years ago, I absolutely loved it. It could do everything from fax, to making copies, scan and print. The one thing that anyone should know about this printer is that the ink is so expensive. It does scan items fairly well, but you cannot scan things like thick cards because they tend to become stuck and jams up the machine. It is also difficult to scan delicate pieces of papers because the roller will end up tearing it into pieces. One other thing is that you cannot take the top half apart in order to clean it. I had a small piece of paper jammed underneath the roller and it took me forever trying to pry the paper apart with a small pair of tweezers. Other than those minor things it is a pretty good machine. It was money well spent, I would recommend this for household use, but not office use.
