I am a busy mom with a 3 year old baby, and this is the easiest printer i have used by far. it is everything all in one so you dont have to worry about having 3 or 4 different machines attached to your computer. it scans copies and prints. i have used many of printers but this is the easiest i have found and it is inexpensive. and you dont have to worry about doing the wrong thing because it has each button the top and it is clearly labeled for what it does and it is not that big so you dont have to worry about it being to big for your computer desk or storing it somewhere because it is smaller then most of the others i have seen that all in one printers. the lexmark x 73 is a very good peice of equipment and i would definataly recommend this product to my friends and which i have done so. it does not take long to do what you want it to. it is preety fast and printing and coping and scanning.
