I got tired of buying the typical home variety printers. Been through about 6 already. Poor quality, slow and you have to pawn your first born to buy ink. My used printers do make great door stops and flower planters for the office. This printer is solidly built, fast, good quality text and photo, LAN capable and most of all it has he-man size ink tanks that cost only a few bucks more than those wimpy little ones. So far, I'm impressed with this printer. I hope it doesn't disappoint me.
