      Answer

      It does not use ink cartridges. It uses toner. Unlike ink, which goes on wet, has to dry, clogs the print heads and dries out if left inactive for a period of time, this devices uses dry powdered toner in cartridges that is fused onto the paper by a heated element. It can be left inactive for extended periods and does not clog. The life on the supplied cartridges appears to be about 15,000 plates. Plate=one side of a sheet of paper, it auto-duplexes. Print quality is decent, call it "business class", not photo quality.

      If color cartridges run out can you continue printing with black cartridge?   (4 Answers)

      If color cartridges run out can you continue printing with black cartridge? Current inkjet does not allow printing unless all cartridges are replaced.

          It uses color toner cartridges. They last much longer than ink cartridges.

            What is the quality for printing 5 x 7 color prints?   (5 Answers)

            I'm fed up with inkjet printers. I only need them sometimes every few weeks so I was thinking of a Laser Color, but price has delayed this decision until now, they are getting more affordable but I read a lot of negative comments about photo quality.

              Lasers are not commonly known for photo printing. You need an inkjet for that or just use a service and save yourself aggravation.

              will it feed and print cardstock invitations   (3 Answers)

              I have some blank inviations on a lightweight cardstock. They are 8 1/2 by 5 1/2. If I can print on this, will the printer feed these through the printer using the paper tray.. Or do I have to send one piece at a time through bypass.

                I printed from the regular tray with cardstock. No problem, just chose heavy paper in the options.

                  My original black toner cartridge printed over 4000 pages on "toner save" setting. All copies were clear and crisp and did not appear to be "draft" or light copies. Have just replaced that cartridge so can't say how long this one will last. I haven't used color printing yet.

                    The top of the printer flips up, and you slide the toner carts in. There's a single cart for each color (B/C/Y/M)

                        No, it doesn't scan or make copies. However - if you have a smartphone, you can easily use the TurboScan app and scan the document in color, and then (if you have an iPhone) AirPlay it back out to the printer easy peasy.
