Summary: I bought this printer from Amazon 18 months ago. It was used very regularly though not intensively in the first 4 months. At that time, when I first reviewed it, I thought in most respects it was a very good printer. It can produce output of excellent quality, whether from documents or photographs and I had no reservations at the time about saying so. It was also not difficult to use.
Summary: Read the reviews...seemed to be a good buy. First thing I noticed was when moving the paper guide to different sizes. It was awkward and tended to stick. Likewise the upper paper tray. The biggest disappointment was the quality of the photo images 10 X 8 and over. Whilst the colours were good the image suffered from 'banding' in this case tiny vertical white lines evident even with the best settings and a decent quality paper.
