HP Photosmart 6520 All-in-One Wireless Printer with Ink 5 5 1 1
Excellent printer! I've had this printer for more than a year or so now ( so far I've been through 5 printers in the past 15 years)....been through no more cartridges than usual (I print a fair amt.), and this works so effortlessly. I'm pretty much computer challenged, so the touch screen on the front reads easily, choices are easy to make (color vs. black/white, scan, etc....) I recommend using the 564XL cartridges (they are more fully loaded than the standard 564) so you will change cartridges MUCH less frequently; I find them to be very cost effective. One note: allow color copies to 'dry' a bit before you handle or stack them. I've used my printer for receipts, scrapbooking, etc...(and a lot more was paid for my printer) This is on a broadband connection, and I've used Apple, HP, and Acer with it. 11-19-13
