I Love This Printer

I fell in love with this MG5500 Series printer. This product is bigger than my previous all-in-one but has better quality than everything I print. I just finished printing a rather large project involving color printing, and frankly, I cringed at how much ink I thought was being used. But when I check the ink status, it shows around 80% full. I am very happy.
