I bought this printer mainly because generic ink is available and consumables are the main cost, not the purchase price. I have high-speed laser printers for most work, but need an ink-jet for some items such as glossy card, which this printer does brilliantly. Great overall performance, including scan quality, but running it wirelessly does make it a bit sluggish on the uptake. Good product overall for sure. Oh, and quick delivery from CCL.
