Summary: Print quality just isn't that great. I've tried different ink cartridges, but still the same result...streaky printing, and sometimes the colors don't print properly. I've tried recalibrating and doing all of the print tests. Nothing fixed the problem.
Excerpt: I’d been using this printer since December 2008. For that span of time however, I didn’t get much satisfied. I bet some other printers might work better than this one. When it comes to appearance, I could give a 6.
Summary: Jams frequently, prints average (given that it's a low level printer), prints slow and shoots pages across the room. For the price, it's good, but if you'll be printing a lot (I'm just a poor college student who uses the library more) it's not a good decision to buy it.
Summary: I'll try and keep this to the point and as quick as possible. When i was at University i bought this printer after doing some research into which Ink cartridges are the cheapest. I had previously bought printers in the past and realised quickly that sometimes the ink cartridges were more expensive than printer. Anyway so i found this printer and read that it only requires 2 ink cartridges. One Black & One Colour- simple...
Summary: Cheap and easy to setup. That's about it. It does not (of course) include a USB A->B cable so you get fleeced (unless you get one from eg. Amazon). The printing quality is pretty rough, and the colour prints are particularly average. It's small and badly put together - but what did you expect? The ink cartridges are like rocking horse poo in most shops too. Mine is now also failing to respond to any inputs..
Summary: A good inexpensive little printer that won't wash the car or walk the dog like some more expensive models, but, a solid performer at basic printing with surprisingly good quality photo printing. Especially a fit if space is ay a premiun and you just need good basic printing. Arrived in great shape earlier than promised.
Summary: I don't know where to begin. This printer hates envelopes. or maybe I should say that it hates some envelopes some days, but not others. It will not print from some applications, some days. I tried everything in it's tool box. Finally, (gasp!) I had to call (off shore) tech support. They asked If it had ink. (!!!) they asked if it had paper (!!!) They asked if I was loading the paper correctly. Need I say more?
Greaat low volume printer and can't beat the price

Summary: This printer sells for less than the prices of the cartridges and ships free. Ink only lasted about a month but the replacement 3 times the ink cartridges sell at Costco for $60.00 for the set. 3 months of ink for $60.00 is pretty cheap and I am delighted with the quality of the unit and the printing. Photos come out fine with good colors and detail. What I got delivered was infinitely better that what the reviews suggested.
A nifty little device for those who only print occasionally.

Summary: Do you only print spasmodically? Are you a tad short of desk depth space? Want something simple to set up/install? Looking to save a little cash? Then here is your printer. Light, not too bulky with easily changeable ink cartridges this thing was so simple even a technology luddite such as myself got it up and running with no dramas and it's lasted well over twelve months now without a hitch. I don't need a printer that can print 500 pages of a thesis.
Summary: At this price point I really didn't expect much. I was not disappointed. While the printer is easy to set up and does the job, it has too many faults. There is not a receptacle for the printed sheets. If one does not keep their hand in front of the printer while printing, the printed sheet will fly across the room. The paper feed will work properly about half the time. The other half requires pulling the paper supply out and reinserting it for proper feeding.
