Summary: No more Ink cartridges going bad early. No more streaked printouts. No more waiting 1+ minutes for a page to get printed out. No more poor colors...I have always wanted a color laser since the days when they were more than $2,000. Imagine getting one for less than $40...It has performed perfectly and I couldn't be happier.
Summary: THis printer is great if you want a color laser jet printer and not spend a ton of money on it. I use it ocassionaly for office work and misc fun stuff. It isn't made for heavy duty but works great for my needs.
Summary: I have had this printer for about 4 years and it's beautiful, prints beautiful, etc.. I paid $169.00 brand new from HP.... why would anyone pay $599.00 for this printer? At this point it's old technology even though it's a great printer.
Summary: Even when it says that the ink is running low, it might not be. I kept the same cartridge until it finally said that it had to be replaced, which was quite a while after the notice popped up. Despite the size and expensive ink it's a pretty good printer. I've had this printer for about 2 years and no troubles. It prints fast and the ink dries quickly. It does it's job, no more, no less.
Summary: I love this product. I've had it for a few years now and I bought it using my employee discount at work. I don't use it much but when I do it prints out perfectly. As far as Vista support goes, the driver does work for Vista as I have no problems with it. And cartridges will be a bit pricey, it's a laser printer not an inkjet. A bit better quality then an inkjet I would expect to pay more. Overall I'm satsified with this product.
