My parents needed a basic, cheap and uncomplicated printer for occasional use. After reading many reviews and weighing up the ink costs, I decided to order the HP Deskjet 1010 from Amazon. I ordered an additional XL black cartridge too so we were prepared for when the "starter cartridges" run out. After printing off quite a few documents, the starter ink is still going strong. I imagine the XL black ink will last ages. Setting up the printer was fairly easy and it runs fine on Windows XP with a service pack 3 installed. The print quality is top notch and I have no problems with recommending this printer to anyone with basic printing needs.
