Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

For the odd print and scan this is great!

 

Purchased this printer at Woolies for just $40 in October last year. To date I have not had to purchase any refills (!!) , but i know they will be expensive. For my needs this does the job required. Print quality is fine, but i find myself using this...
