I adore this little printer!,

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm quite happy with this great little printer. It's easy to set up (via the software which downloaded without a glitch) and works fabulously well wirelessly with my Wifi. This printer is so compact, and very quiet compared with my old Canon all-in-one. This doesn't have fax capabilities, but you'd typically pay more for that anyway.
I find the prints themselves have great saturated color clarity (very nice for photos, brochures, and other color projects). As with other inkjet printers you have 4 cartridges instead of one (which is nice, you only need to replace the color your need the most). ALL inkjet printers (the newer models) are set up this way. I found that the ink lasts much longer than my old Pixma (which seemed to eat ink like mad) and the cartridges cost less than many other brands I've used before. I have another Epson, and I recommend using a high output BLACK cartridge if you print alot of text documents or B&W documents. I happen to, and find that it takes me quite a bit longer to use up the color. The high output cartridge lasts about 2x longer.
Now, other reviewers are saying you can't use this printer for high output printing (and I do agree), but I think it's unreasonable to expect a printer priced like this to work in that manner. I have a laser printer for those needs myself, it makes much more sense. If you're looking for a great printer under $100 which is small & compact(lightweight)but can handle your printing needs(as long as you're not burning through ink with tons of copies)this IS the printer for you. It's wireless too, or you can use any USB cable from an old printer (I tried it and it works fine)if need be. I happen to have a few extra cables around just in case, so it's not a big deal. Yet I can load up this little printer when I need to take my notebook on the road, and that's convenient for business situations.
I have tried many brands of printers over the years and am now an Epson convert. I doubt I will buy ANY other brand in the future.
