This is a very good printer. The only problem I have found is that the black ink runs out relatively quick. I had to order a new cartridge within the month I recieved the printer. I do NOT do a lot of copying. The printer is worth the price because it really delivers great copies. Ink cartridges do not cost as much as other printer ink refill cartridges I have owned. It is not a scanner. If you want to scan pictures to your computer, forget it. I purchased the Epson scanner for that. Together they are just wonderful.
