We bought this for home use a few months ago.
We've done quite a lot of colour printing on this, including a set of party invites & 20+ A4 sheets of photos, and only the one colour (cyan) we happened to use most has run out, so I think this is pretty reasonable.
I'm surprised at other reviews saying that this printer is slow to print, once it starts printing it takes about 2 secs to print a page, which I think is pretty fast.
The printer has a cassette for feeding plain A4 paper, so you do not have to have paper sticking out of the back of the printer, meaning that it can be kept dust free pretty easily. If you leave the printer on, it even opens the front of the printer itself when told to print, so it really is hassle free - you can print from another room without having to do anything to the printer at all to get it ready.
We did find the wireless feature a little buggy on occasion, the laptop seemed to 'lose' the printer for a few weeks but then started working again. However you can also print easily from either a USB pen or a memory card if you don't want to connect your PC directly.
Further, I have just found today that this printer can even duplex (print on both sides of the paper) by itself if you just select 'Duplex' in the printer properties - great when printing long documents and you don't want to waste any paper!
All in all, a pretty decent set of functions for the price.
