Tho I have been a long-time HP fan, I am sorry to say the best printers are behind us - 8500 series and especially my 8620 were better All-in-one printers. When one of the cartridges, black or color, was low or empty, it asked if it could continue with the other. If black was empty, it asked if it could continue with color and vise-versa. The 8710 does not do that. I'm not a fan. Miss my very functional 8620.
