Summary: I bought this printer to replace another one just like it because I know it to be a great printer. Photo printing is fantastic. But I use it mostly for general purposes. Cheap Ink!!!!! Probably the best feature. But beware of some cheap ink found on e-bay. I bought some of that stuff and it never dries on photo paper. Now, the reason I had to replace the old printer was because of the dreaded waste ink tank thing.
Summary: I am very happy with this printer. I took a big risk buying it used. Print quality is great and colors come very close to the actual photo colors. I should note however I am using Edible ink & edible Icing sheets. I have a cake decorating business on the side and this is my “experimental” printer to see if I like adding printed pictures on my cakes. And will be looking forward to see if I would be able to make a return on my investment of a more expensive printer.
Summary: I've owned two of these printers and I love them, because they print well and the ink is the least expensive of any I've ever bought. When after some time of use, it just quits printing or you get the WASTE TANK FULL ERROR, just open the front like you're going to change cartridges and unplug the power cord as soon the the tanks move all the way to the left. That allows access to the little tank that is filling up under the cartridges.
Summary: I use this printer for my income tax preparation business with very high volume of printing. Some days during the approx 3 months of the tax season we print more than 1 ream or 500 pages per day, and we go through 2 or 3 black ink cartridges per day. For this printer we can get the ink as low as $0.75 per cartridge so that my printing costs are extremely low!
