    Someone who knows this kind of thing, offer advice:


    Good deal or not? We're in the market for something like this. Or so I'm told by The Queen.

    For what it's worth, Consumer Reports lists this printer at $150 and gives it an overall rating of 54/100, which is right on the dividing line between "Good" and "Very Good." Their highest-rated printer in the same category got 60/100, and their lowest-rated got 43/100.

    So you would be getting a middle-of-the-road printer for a little more than one-third of the retail price. Make of that whatever you want.

    You got a fancy big new job. Dig the crowbar out of your wallet and buy a new super good one.

    Just to chip in another thought:

    If you and Her Royal Highness were thinking about getting a new computer at any time later this year, you'd probably be able to find one that comes with a printer at least as good, or better, for free. Ask the lord exchequer if such a purchase is on the horizon.

    another computer site zdnet.com doesn't have a review for it, just lists the specs and shows it as not being available in stores... the middle printer here:

    depends on the workload. ... if you are going to do a TON of printing, move up the ladder.

    At it's core, it's still a 60 buck printer

    Yup. With $25.00 ink cartridges probably.

    As someone who worked in an office supply store, it's still a good deal for what you're getting. The ink alone, when you have to replace them, will cost about the same price as that printer.
