Bought one at Christmas. Haven't used it very much yet, (not enough to actually comment on ink usage and replacement, so I might not be of much help!). What I have done with it so far though, I've been pleased with.

The built-in card reader on the front makes it very easy to get your photos on screen (so no camera/card reader wires everywhere). It's quiet in operation (once it's finished initialising itself on first power-up) and has user friendly online help.

Also find it very useful that it's a stand-alone printer and it gives very good results from both colour and black and white printing.

You can choose standard or high capacity individual ink cartridges and the high cap are only a pound or two dearer for considerably more yield. (Haven't got the actual figures here with me but can let you know if you're interested.)

As far as the scanner is concerned, the one thing I couldn't seem to fathom was how to save written documents as small text files - whichever format I chose even a small bank statement was around 500KB, (but even that wouldn't be a problem if they were then saved to a cd). That aside, the scanner's still easy to use, like the rest of it.

So, for what it's worth, I personally think it's a very good buy.
