Beautiful plumage...

This seems pretty much like what can be described as a "Jack of all trades, master of none".
It can do a lot of things, but for every use there's a better option available. The only advantage seems to be a smallish footprint and purchase price compared to having a scanner, a photo printer and a laser printer.

As for the black ink yield, the standard used says that 5% of each print page is supposed to be covered in ink. So the 250 page yield stated by HP translates to 12.5 totally black pages.

I also miss a time test, where the printer after initial use is left alone for a month or more before running a second small batch of print tests to see if the nozzles are clogged or if it can be used without problems. (This was a major problem for me when I had an ink printer, so I switched to laser.)

Cheers
Olle

Default Jack of all Trades

Olle,
I agree that this printer is a Jack of all trades.

As far as I know, all ink jet printers can dry up if they are not used. So your solution of moving to a laser is a good one if you will have months of inactivity.

We used to recommend removing the ink cartridges and putting them in plastic bags if you were not going to use the printer for more than a month. Now, however, some printers have print heads that will dry out if you remove the cartridges. So I have posed the question of how to keep the ink from drying out due to inactivity directly to HP. I'll let you know when I get their response.
