HP - Do you think this is a good printer?

Hi all, if would appreciate feedback from anyone who has this HP printer as I am thinking of buying it.

I particularly like that its wireless and you only need to replace each colour as needed.Previously I had a Lexmark which was a real lemon and very expensive ink.

Thanks :o)

Not bad printers, but genuine inks are usually not cheap.

Thanks.
The ink cartridges are concerning me.I accept they will probably be expensive, most are, however I am more concerned about availability.
I have just looked on 3 NZ ink supply website and none even list this model of printer.

Cheap printer means expensive genuine inks - also it has the false economy of separate inks which I am sure printer manufactureres love, especially since all the priming leads to the ink sponge being used up faster. Very good price on it but I am having trouble finding details on its wireless capabilities - it mentions ethernet which TBH makes more sense if it is able to reach your router or switch or whatever.

Actually on reading more it seems it has no wireless in it so will have to be plugged into your network.

This is a very good printer especially at that price. I have an earlier model (C7180) which has the 6 ink but also fax and wireless. Good compatible ink cartridges can be had for $12 each
