Do not waste your hard earned money on this printer! it'll break your bank account on ink alone! It uses up ink way to quickly, not to mention since it is 3 colors in 1 cartridge, you may of actually only used 1 of those 3 colors, but once one is gone the entire cartridge is seen as empty and you can't use the other colors. It's best to go with the printers that use Single Cartridges for each color, this way you truly use up all the ink, and only have to replace what is really empty. I bought this printer not even 3 weeks ago, and already gave it away and purchased a different one. If you only print 2-3 times a year and don't print anything but text, then it'll be okay - as long as you print a page out at least once a week so the ink doesn't dry up. This printer can't even print out a decent picture. it is a waste of money even if it is cheap, the ink will cost you a lot more than the printer did in the end.
