Summary: I bought this hoping to go wireless but I can't seem to get it to work. It gets as far as asking for the name of my wireless connection and when I select it, it "thinks" for a long time and then says connection failure. Then I went through the process of trying to connect via the computer (temporary usb connection), keep in mind that my computer is connected to the Internet wirelessly, and it still won't connect. Just don't get it.
VERY DIFFICULT to connect as wireless stand alone.

Summary: The instruction book was 3/4 fax set-up and only a few pages of actual wireless set up instruction. I would not reccommend this for a novice to try and install. I did have the printer print a "demo" page to show that the ink is installed correctly, but still have not figured out the wireless stand alone connection. I finally broke down and purchased a different brand of printer altogether, and had no difficulty in set up.
Summary: The price I paid ($80) was good for the features this product offers. However, the main function of this product (printer) does not work properly and it jams frequently. I tried different papers and it still jams every few pages I print. If you need a good printer, this product is not good for you.Also, the quality of photos printed is bad.
Summary: I have had this printer for a few months now and wish I had bought an HP. This looks fine in the photos, and I suppose it looks fine in person, but its plastic parts are cheap, rickety, shoddy. The printer is cheap for a reason. I'm currently looking at a screen that says "Unable to print 70, check user guide"; it wants me to remove a paper jam. I've already removed the paper jam and there's no way to reset the machine; I've tried unplugging.
Summary: I purchased this mainly because it is wireless and we have up to 3 laptops that need to connect to it. The Quick Setup Guide indicates that wireless can be set up straight away. However, I found that on all 3 laptops it was necessary to set them up with a USB printer cable first. The first laptop to succeed was a very new Toshiba running Windows 7 (64 bit). Once the printer was set up with USB then the wireless instalation worked okay.
