Thanks a MILLION to each and every one of you for your help!

My kid has the wired version of this printer and it's working great.

We switched to Brother printers. Reliable, and lower cost ink than HP.

We have always used HP. We have a 895Cse in service now. It's an oldie but how many pages we can print per minute is not an issue. It works fine. The black cartridges are easy to refill. Replacement color inks low cost on Ebay.

We have relatives who use Kodak and their inks are lower cost than HP we think. They are happy with their Kodak.

UPDATE:

Well after doing a lot of homework, in early August I ended up going to Best Buy and buying a HP Envy 5660 (on sale) for less than $100, as the original price was $149.99.

This printer has been the greatest thing since sliced bread! It was very easy to set up, and so user friendly to operate. So far it is easy on the ink! I love it’s 2 sided printing option! All I have to do is tell it to print a job on both sides, and it automatically will print the job on both sides (without me having to flip the paper)! On all of my prior printers, I had to always get up and turn the paper, in order to print on both sides.

Right now, I’m still working on trying to perfect formatting envelopes on it . . . as the return address seems to be always print in the wrong spot, however the “send to” address is perfect!

Then just last month, I discovered that Costco has an ink cartridge refill service and my new printer has ink cartridges that Costco can refill (as Costco can not refill all brand/model ink cartridges). So now I can save money on my future ink needs without having to purchase new ink cartridges. “Yay!” Currently Costco will refill my black XL or color XL cartridges for only $10.49 each. Currently Walmart is charging $35.99 for the black XL cartridge my printer uses.

Thank you for the update. It's always nice for me to hear the end of the story, and the additional details like you provided. That's one way we learn, like about Costco's refill service.

Formatting envelopes. Lol. Always a pin in the butt. The best program I ever found was Word 2003.
