The Pros:Ink is relatively inexpensive per print. Easy to set up for entry-level users. Prints come out very fast, not much waiting.
The Cons:Sometimes difficult to find the right settings to get photos to print out in best quality. Printheads tend to wear out fairly quickly, need replacement. Paper handling and printhead cleaning mechanisms are very noisy at startup.
