I have bought this inkjet printer about 2 years ago for personal use. The need was a printer with a good number of paper output in a single cartridge. The copier was to be used for black-and-white xerox and seldom printing - school projects and tickets usually and photos rarely. I don't need the scanner much as CamScanner works great in my mobile.

Why this?

I have been using different models of HP printers for the last 8 years and quite satisfied with the service and durability. But wanted a change this time. I would have brought a laser printer but that would use a lot of power and we have frequent power failures here. Thus dependent on inverter.

So the search started for a inkjet again, narrowing down to HP and Canon. After asking with the retailers, they suggested HP as the cartridges cost less and are readily available.

This model uses the HP 46 cartridge. The black cartridge is comparatively larger than other cartridges while colour one is almost the same. Also, some printers made it mandatory to have both cartridges in the slot, even if you want only black-and-white outputs. personal experience from previous printers

After use

With approx 10 full pages daily and only the black cartridge, it went on for almost a month(~250 pages). Then I refilled it twice before the cartridge died.

The refilled cartridge doesn't work the same. Number of pages decreased and so was, the print quality. for obvious reasons

Recently, few months ago the printer stopped pulling pages so had to do a cleanup with a local technician out-of-warranty. Except that the printer has worked fine and is doing so now. It also had a fall few weeks ago but nothing happened to the printing mechanism but the input tray and output tray detached from the body which could be attached easily again. Quite sturdy, yeah!

My opinion

The price is a little higher than other printers but the cost of printing is less. The cartridge costs the same as other cartridges but gives more output. I have mostly used the copier but with fast draft mode printing, you can get a higher output. And not to mention, if refilling goes fine, you would be getting even more. But for a normal household use, I don't think anyone would feel the need of refilling, its not recommended either.

PS: I have connected the printer to the USB port of my Dlink DSL 2750U and using it "wirelessly"
