Wish I'd known in advance

I needed a printer quickly for work and was convinced by an in-store salesperson at a well known computer store that this was right for us. It's noisy and slow to print, cartridges are pricey and, here's the clincher for me, there's something called the imaging drum which needs replacing every one and a half colour cartridges i.e. every 3 cartridges used you'll need two imaging drums. They are more expensive than the cartridges. I've had the printer 6 months and it now needs replacing. The inkjet we had before was better but it remains to be seen if this is more reliable in terms of longevity.
Print quality is good but like most printers it tells you to replace the ink way too early and the ink level indicator is pretty poor. Scan function is good and contrary to other reviews I found it easy to set up.
I wouldn't buy this model again.
