Yes, it was cheap to buy BUT the cartridges last no time at all. The problem that I've encountered after having the printer for a few months is that it will not print a mono page if the colour cartridge has run out!

As he is still involved with eBay he is unable or unwilling to criticise - eBay isn't perfect, but nothing here is anything but praise. Similarly, his references to Paypal are gushing in the extreme - no hints as to how to avoid getting scammed by the massive holes in paypal's policies, no warnings about fees, payment delays, account suspension etc. The definitive eBay book is yet to be written - it may help if Dan Wilson… Read more
