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.
Pros: I have NEVER had any problems with this printer. It works great and puts out great color. Perfect printer for your home.
Cons: The only drawback is of course the cost of the replacement toner. Also, the printer will occasionally make random noise for about 10 seconds while the display says "Calibrating". Don't know why it does this but it's rather infrequently.
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.
