This printer has been nothing but a hassle!!! It takes forever to warm up and is very loud. The ink definitely doesn't last longer. It won't scan if you don't have both black and color ink cartridges...even if you only want to save or e-mail the scanned page! And forget using compatible ink cartridges. I've had to have one printer replaced already because of continual paper jams. I'm ready to throw it out the window. You don't save money, but you definitely have a lot of stress after dealing with this printer. It has caused many arguments because my children haven't been able to complete numerous assignments because of problems and issues with it.
