I have to agree that the HP 1220C is a great machine. It's good in "fast" mode exceptional in photo work. A3 is a snip together with many features such as tiling, special folds etc. Cartridge costs are very reasonable if you use the Eurojet Remanufactured. I've had it's predecessor the C2000 and the C2500 and they were good too. You'll find that Hp support are devoted to the 1220C user. I do a great deal of printing for charity.
