Not a good value at any price
I purchased this all-in-one when it was first release, however; I would not buy it at it's current suggested retail price either. The overall quality of the machine is good.
That said there are a number of issues. Setup on certain operating systems was a pain, requiring me to download additional drivers and start with the machine plugged in via USB. I also had to figure out wireless scanning ton my own because the machine's documentation lacked the necessary instructions.
Secondly, there is the ink issue. This machine is a terrible value on ink, even on economy settings it burns through the cartridges. Also, it requires that all 5 ink cartridges be installed in order to print. Despite having 2 black cartridges the machine will not print in black or greyscale if the large cartridge (220-BK) is empty. This means that if all the other cartridges (black (221BK), magenta, yellow, & cyan) are full the machine will not print

I would not recommend this particular MX 860 to anyone as it burns through ink like there is no tomorrow and has already burned through its printer head after only a couple thousand copies, at the most. I have been very disappointed. It is easy plug and use, but that does not outweigh the negatives for me.

ugh, I hate this thing.
I spend a lot of time getting it to work, finally it does, but by the next time I need to print, it seems to not be working.
the instructions for the driver install are not complete and the software does not follow the instructions.
I'm sorry, and embarassed that I bought this product.
