Excerpt: After I started getting into a photography about a year ago and was steadily upgrading my camera, I decided it was probably time to get a new printer as well. Something that could do quality photographic prints, and something that preferably wouldn’t cost me too much. I was willing …
Pros: Proberly the best $149.99 ive spent in a long time. Price, well worth it. Set up 1-2-3 and i mean that, 6 computers are printing here from 2 differant apartments. appx use:8-10 faxes per day 30-50 scans per day
Pros: Installation and setup were easy. Scanning worked well.
Cons: Printouts started to be smudged and distorted after a while, as if the printer heads were misaligned. Running the alignment and head cleaning processes didn't solve the problem. Very disappointing.
Summary: Also own a MX860 which does what you need it to do when you need it. The MX860 ink use is less than other printers we have had once you set your printing parameters correctly. We bought the MX870 because of the excellent experience we have had with the MX860.
Pros: It works well when you need it to. It replaces an HP all-in-one which has been very unreliable.
Summary: I ran 589 scans in one afternoon before I decided to write this review. It feeds paper well, took all of the odd-ball sizes (through the ADF) a few on the Platen. Software is flawless; a misfeed will get deleted from the queue and it allows you to place it right back where it came fom on the feeder.
Pros: All-in-one for real, great software for general printer usage.
Cons: Slow on the take-off but okay once it starts going, reason for the 4 stars instead of 5.
Pros: MAC Pro w Snow Leopard & HP Elitebook Laptop w/64bit Win7: Works every time. Auto feeder for scanning is excellent, Duplex scans automatically. Have software for MX860 at work with separate software loaded for that also; no conflicts. I would buy it again without hesitation.
Cons: The price fell $20 2 weeks after I purchased it. Size, it's a little larger than other printers.
