At first glance this feels like a lot of hardware for $99. It has a color scanner with a flatbed and auto document feeder, color printing capabilities, WiFi, and full mobile device compatibility. But do the math.
A full ink replacement costs $60-70. This printer currently costs $99 at the time I’m writing this review. After about one and half ink replacements you’ll have spent as much on consumables as you have on the printer.
And for that cheap cost of entry on the hardware you’re buying low end features – slow print and scan speed, passable print quality, and no real photo printing capability.
So you could spend $50 – $100 more and get a better performing device while paying around the same price for consumables. If this is a ‘disposable’ printer you need for only a short period, go for it. But if this is going to be integral part of your workflow an investment in something a little higher up the product line might be a smarter buy.
I’d also suggest choosing a laser based MFP vs. an ink jet one for those who don’t print all that frequently. My ink jets printers tend to require more ‘declogging’ and cleanings when infrequently used which reduces the amount of actual printed pages I’ll get out of a set of ink cartridges.
