This printer works well, and the ink is cheap. I do occasionally have some frustration with the driver, but much less than any other printer I have owned. I use it for long documents, copies, envelopes, and crafts.
It's a tiny bit drying, but not terribly so. For how we'll it lasts, I understand it would be a little drying. I have the color "exposed" and it's a really pretty nude shade with a hint of pink. The only time I touch it up during the day is after eating lunch.
