I have wanted a new printer for forever but just did not want to break down and spend the money on something I really did not need. My old printer was still holding out- barely. One day I was at Wal-Mart buying black ink (which is $18) for my old printer when I seen this nice Hp All-in-one printer for $24. I bought the printer instead of the ink. I am really glad I did. It is a printer, scanner, and copier all in one. It came with a black and colored ink cartridge- which coincidently was the same type my old printer used so I know have an extra colored ink cartridge. The printer is vista compatible and very easy to set up. This printer did not come with a USB cable, but I had an extra one. I really like this printer. It is very user friendly, even my technology challenged husband has managed to work it on occasion. It is fairly fast, but could be faster. I am not sure how many pieces of paper you can load in the paper tray; the most I have put in at one time is 25. I really like the scanner because now I can scan older pictures onto my computer and email them to out of state family. The copier also works really well for various things. The printer works very well and has printed some very nice photos as well as basic college essay papers. I think I got a really good deal on this printer and I am very satisfied. The only thing I would change about this printer is the color. They only seem to come in the basic white. If you are looking for a new printer then definitely check this one out.
