I really like my Hewlett Packard Photosmart C3135 All-in-One; printer, scanner and copier. I just had a plain printer and did not expect much. I thought only the expensive professional All-in One's would deliver a quality copy, print or scan into the computer. Boy, was I wrong! I am pretty bad about reading directions-I always think I can do anything without reading them-but hooking it up and printing and copying were all very easy. I had to look at the directions to scan, but that is extrememly easy too, I think if you have any knowledge of printing, copying or scanning you probably won't need to read the instructions, that is how easy it is to use. The qualilty of my pictures is better then when I take them to be developed. You can either use the black and tri-color inks or you can buy a photo ink. I thought that the photo ink would take the place of the tri-color, but it doesn't, you place it where the black is. I really did not see that much of a difference between the two, so I would not spend the extra on the photo ink. The only complaint I would have is the price of the ink cartridges (although you can get them refilled pretty cheap, the price of a new black cartidge is close to the price of the refill so it doesn't seem worth it. I brought several different empty color cartridges to be refilled and was told they could not be refilled-and that would have been alot cheaper-but it might be where I took them to be refilled.) In short this is everything you need in one with very good quality. The only other complaint I have and it really is not a complaint, I have two cameras, one is older and the membory card from the older one does not fit-but it really does not fit many Printers-so it is no big deal.
