Summary: I was looking for printers at the retail stores. They all seemed so pricey and had their flaws. I bought a HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 because a website had glowing reviews on its photo printing quality. So I paid big bucks to get the new model. The photo printing was a flop. The shadows had so much colored noise in the print even though I was using full resolution. So I got so upset that I tried sending the OfficeJet Pro 8600 back to Amazon.
Summary: This is a terrific little printer. Takes up minimal space, and if I hadn't accidentally dropped the one I had before (disengaged something that I couldn't repair myself) I would still be using the first one after several years. I know it's reliable, and ink cartridges last a long time.
Summary: I had this same printer that was 6 years old. I print app. 4 blacks and 2 color cartridges every 6 months and usually bought ink in that quantity. Well, I just got an order and the old printer quit. So waying my options I found this new old stock of the same model. The quality and durablity of these printers will definately make me look to Canon inthe future.
Great Printer for Everyday Needs (Kids school papers, Airline boarding passes, coupons, etc.)

Summary: Ordered this printer to replace an older model that we had for over 6 years. We really liked the printer because it was easy to use and the color printing is not bad for our everyday needs. This model is just as good as the 1600 & it came with a set of ink cartridges. The price on the printer was good on its own & it was a nice bonus to also receive the ink cartridges which are a $40 plus value.
