"The reason I give it TWO STARS: photo-quality printouts"
14 January 2011
Pros: Photo-quality printouts are excellent Scanning device is excellent Relatively simple interface & installation Fax function is good Software included is good Overall quality of print-on-paper is very good Simple ink replacement
Cons: When device runs out of ONE COLOR of ink, it will print NOTHING even if plenty of ink left in other cartridges INCLUDING not printing Black. Ink is prohibitively expensive ($17+ per cartridge). Occasional paper-jam problems despite careful use.
Pros: Cheap ink readily available on-line. When ink quality is turned down the finished product will still look good without draining ink. Easy to operate. Does good pictures. Remember it is an in-expensive machine. Good, not pro
Cons: Screen hard to see unless well lit and viewed directly. Not a huge issue. Better on newer models.
