My old HP Deskjet 930C is still working perfectly after many years (7 years, I think) but the price of the replacement cartridges was getting astronomic, so I was looking for reasonably priced printer either as a back-up or to replace it. As my scanner was even older than my printer and I do not own a photocopier, a Multi Purpose machine seemed ideal. After looking round and reading reviews, I settled on the Prixma, on the basis that it was so cheap that, if it went wrong, I still had the HP and I wasn't going to lose a fortune on the MP190.
In fact the Prixma is functioning perfectly and I am extremely pleased with it. One or two small minus points, the fold-down paper exit gate feels plasticky and loading the paper at the back of the machine isn't all that easy. But it works well as copier, scanner and printer, plus it comes ith an excellent on-disc manual as well as enough 'extras' to please even a techie. Setting it up for perfect printing may be more complex than with the old HP but the end results are much better.
For such a cheap price, this is a real bargain for anyone wanting a relatively light usage MFD
